This report re- flects concerns that this National Human Rights Commission sha- re, since water universal access is a priority to the Organism that I represent. To ensure that this precious asset is available to everyone in a sufficiently way, with quality, security and affordability repre- sents an important challenge to Mexico, as rightfully underline this report. Likewise, as the Spe- cial Rapporteur warn us, we have observed with worry and uncer- tainty public budget reduction in water services and sanitation. Removing obstacles for rights exercise requires close collabo- ration between the authorities of the country, as well as from the final beneficiaries of these servi- ces and civil society. I share Mr. Leo Heller´s con- cern upon the need of issuing a domestic legal system for water in México with human rights perspective in order to facilitate water access and disposition, as well as its sanitation, and to en- sure domestic needs of all peo- ple, families and communities so they can have permanency over its industrial usage. We hope ac- tions for that purpose and that, in this process, all voices could be listen. It is unquestionable the close link between water and sanita- tion rights with the right to life, health, food and healthy envi- ronment, among others. Thus, we trust that each recommenda- tion included in this report will be promptly addressed. I want to recognize the Spe- cial Rapporteur´s work carried out during his visit to Mexico in May of this year, which aimed to identify the prevalent situation regarding the rights to water at the Mexican territory. In this re- port were reflected his findings and conclusions. I express to this forum, my commitment to give the widest possible dissemina- tion of the recommendations and to follow up on their compliance by the Mexican authorities. Ladies and gentlemen: the Na- tional Human Rights Institutions have the duty of contributing for the effectiveness towards safe drinking water and sanitation rights, which must be protected according with the principles of universality, progressivity, indi- visibility and interdependency, which encourage human rights. We must underline to authorities that we should not prioritize the permanency of certain rights, while we are ignoring others. The functions that we are de- veloping on the mater are essen- tial to encourage and to enforce human rights, as well as to boost the implementation of the sixth goal of 2030 Sustainable Develo- pment Agenda, mainly related with the right to water. I invite you to be part of this labor, many thanks. The voice of the President New Age, No. 295 INDICE INDEX 4 New Age, No. 295 Event of the month THE NATIONAL OMBUDSMAN PRESENTS TO THE UNITED NATIONS COMMITTEE, THE INCREASING MIGRATORY RAIDS AT SOUTHERN BORDER THAT ARE TURNING MIGRANTS INTO VICTIMS OF KIDNAPING AND EXTORTION September 6th, 2017 The National Ombudsman, Luis Raúl González Pérez, presented the Executive Report of National Human Rights Commission to the United Nations Committee on Migrant Workers and their Families, in Geneva, Switzerland. In this sense, he attracts the atten- tion about the increasing migra- tory control and verification raids at southern border in Mexico, that are provoking that migrants seek for alternative routes in order to be invisible and avoid their deten- tion. These actions are converting them into victims of kidnaping and extortion, while the majo- rity of the Special Prosecutor’s Offices for the attention of crimes committed against migrants have not fulfilled their role. Likewise, he highlighted the importance of non-accompanied minors in con- text of migration by their transit in Mexico, which has ascended in the last decade in 700%, or 2,869 minors that returned to their ho- meland in 2010. Many of those underage- he assured- are forced to flee their home and to ask for international protection. However, Mexican au- thorities have given that protec- tion in a minimum percentage 0.2 and 0.3 in 2015 and 2016, respec- tfully. He explained that, althou- gh in the area of children’s rights there is a robust legal framework, it is urgent to harmonize the con- tent of the Migration and Refugee laws and those that regulate the integral development of local fa- milies with the General Law of the Rights of Children and Ado- lescents. This will help to establi- sh the rights they contain, as well as the interaction between the bo- dies created and the authorities of the three levels of government involved. municados/2017/Com_2017_291.pdf INDEX 5 New Age, No. 295 Press Release THE CNDH RECOGNIZES THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE JUDGE OF SAN ANTONIO DISTRICT, TEXAS, AND EMPHASIZES THAT HIS RESOLUTION ABOUT THE SB 04 LAW REPRESENTS AN ADVANCE ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE MIGRANT COMMUNITY IN THE UNITED STATES DGC/288/17 September 3rd, 2017 The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) advance on the protection of the migrants ´human rights in Texas, United States, as it achieves that the San Antonio’s District Judge, Orlando García, resolve the non-applica- tion of some sections of SB04 Law coming into force this Septem- ber 1st, due to its opposition to a number of amendments to the American Constitution. Thus, officials cannot detain individuals that are under a mi- gration context by simple per- ception of their racial profile, appearance, accent, heritage or language, since the given terms and faculties contained in this law opened the possibility of an application based on statement or stigmatization. This would have caused eventual deportations and separation of families that would have left minors on loneliness and abandonment. In this respect, the National Ombudsman, Luis Raúl Gonzá- lez Pérez, express his recognition to the judger by his conducted in- dependency. He also recognized the civil society for its braveness and respect to American laws. He pointed out that this is the first time in which the National Hu- man Rights Commission do their job in another national state. He recognize that this judge- ment is tentative and that the con- troversy against this law could reach the Supreme Court of the country, so he underlines that the cited regulation should be decla- red entirely invalid. He underli- nes that in all moment the Natio- nal Human Rights Commission will be attentive for lodging other actions and legal procedures be- cause it considers that the law promotes discrimination and in- tolerance. municados/2017/Com_2017_288.pdf THE CNDH REQUESTS PREVENTIVE STRATEGIES TO COMBAT VIOLENCE AND DISCRIMINATION AGAINST INDIGENOUS WOMEN, IN ORDER FOR THEM TO FULLY ENJOY THEIR HUMAN RIGHTS DGC/290/17 September 5th, 2017 The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH), underlines that the indigenous women in our country still cannot fully exercise their fundamental rights due to the lack of strategies in order to prevent and eradicate violence and discrimination against them from a human rights, gender and cultural approach. The appro- priateness is that society and the Mexican State must design and encourage these strategies. To this National Commission, constitutional recognition is in- sufficient to their human rights, because it requires structural transformations that allows the cultural diversity and ethnical plurality coexistence. Indige- nous women require the moni- toring, observance and vigilance of the law in order to avoid any form of rejection and maltreat- ment by either gender reasons, social condition, aged, ethnical origin, party affiliation or reli- gious issues, among others. In addition, we should raise awareness and capacitate pu- blic workers upon the contents that programs, intended to assist indi- genous women, should include taking into ac- count their world-view and cultural identity. Meanwhile, the legis- lative organisms must count with elements to design laws according to the indigenous rea- lity in our country, and the contents of the national and international instruments for the protection of women rights. municados/2017/Com_2017_290.pdf INDEX 6 New Age, No. 295 Press Release THE CNDH INVITES TO INCREASE ACTIONS TO STOP ILLITERACY IN MEXICO IN ORDER TO ENSURE HUMAN RIGHTS ENJOYMENT IN THE CONTEXT OF THE 2030 AGENDA DGC/296/17 September 8th, 2017 According to the National Insti- tute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), illiteracy is present in 5.5% of the Mexican population that are over 15 years old (6.1% women and 3.8% men), which reflects a little more than 4.7 mi- llion of individuals. This, without considering relative information of abandonment or lag of educa- tion, which means minors under 15 years old; as the quality of edu- cation on the public and private sector in our country. In other hand, the United Na- tions for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO), points out that approximately 750 million of adults and 264 million of children are lacking of basic literacy com- petence. To the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH), the absen- ce or failings at the literacy pro- cesses on important childhood population sectors, youth or adult, represent serious restric- tions towards Human Right to Education enjoyment and exerci- se. It affects individuals’ rights, as at the State´s general responsibi- lity of respecting and protecting the right to an education. Likewi- se, in attention to the principles of universality interdependency, in- divisibility and progressiveness, such infringements represent a serious obstacle to other rights observance of civil, political, so- cial, cultural or environmental nature. At the commemoration of the International Literacy Day, the CNDH urge education authorities to encourage protection and to ensure the education right in or- der to stop illiteracy in strict and functional sense. These means that they should make possible the access to new technologies; besides stablishing public policies focused on potentially vulnerable groups, in spite of their ethnic, gender, aged, or physical disabi- lity, mental, intellectual or senso- rial status. municados/2017/Com_2017_296.pdf INDEX 7 New Age, No. 295 Press Release THE NATIONAL OMBUDSMAN DEMANDS TO STRENGTHEN THE RULE OF LAW AS THE CULTURE OF LAWFULNESS IN THE CONTEXT OF THE SIGNING OF AN INTENT LETTER BETWEEN THE UNODC AND THE CNDH DGC/302/17 September 14th, 2017 By subscribing a letter of intent between the National Human Ri- ghts Commission (CNDH) and the United Nations Office against Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the National Ombudsman, Luis Raúl González Pérez, demanded the comprehensive strengthening of the Democratic Rule of Law as well as the culture of lawfulness. This, in order for people to be the center and axis of any public po- licy, as well as to encourage the defense of their dignity. After pointing out that Mexico has comprehensive laws and that he aspire that we could upgrade them, he noted that the challen- ge is to put them into practice, especially now that the country has opened to the inspection of the regional and the international systems of human rights. Accompanied by Antonio Ma- zzitelli, representative of the Liai- son and Partnership Office of the UNODC, who signed the Letter, González Pérez pointed out that authorities have a roadmap in order to attend the penitentiary system, as the pronouncements and recommen- dations made by the CNDH have noted. The Natio- nal Ombudsman also said that the agreement would make visible the enforcements of the Mandela ru- les that aim to hu- manize the living situation inside the penitentiaries, harmonize the existing laws, and foster good practices in the penal system. municados/2017/Com_2017_302.pdf THE NATIONAL OMBUDSMAN UNDERLINES THE FUNDAMENTAL ROLE OF CULTURE AND EDUCATION IN ORDER TO AVOID POVERTY DGC/306/17 September 18th, 2017 Luis Raúl González Pérez witnes- sed the signing of a collaboration agreement between the Ministry of the Interior and UNESCO in order to encourage the country’s cultural rights. He manifested that culture is the main element for humanity comprehension and that it is a collective production, together with education, and that both play a fundamental role to eradicate poverty. He stressed the advances that Mexico have achieved in order to strengthen the attention of cul- tural rights, both of material and immaterial productions, so we all can consolidate a culture of pea- ce. Likewise, he underlined the importance of the promotion of the intercultural dialogue through education, science and culture. In the presence of the Secre- tary of the Interior, Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong, and Nuria Sáenz, representative of UNESCO in Mexico, and Jesús Peña Palacios, delegate representative in Mexi- co of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Ri- ghts, he pointed out that educa- tion is a key right that makes pos- sible the exercise of other rights. At the same time, he highlighted that the CNDH and this interna- tional organism have made a lot of work to foster cultural rights of people who are on a migration context. municados/2017/Com_2017_306.pdf INDEX 8 New Age, No. 295 Recommendations Responsible Authority Issue Recommendation Presidency of the Human Rights Commission of Mexico´s state About the appeal delivered by R against the resolution issued by the Human Rights Commission of Mexico´s state.
