Stop Deadly Use of Military Force Against Civilians

Target: Raúl Cervantes Andrade, Attorney General of Mexico

Goal: Stop deadly use of force against civilians by Mexican military.

Civilians have been killed while in custody of the Mexican military. For those detained by the military, many have either been rushed to the hospital with serious injuries, or found dead. Others have disappeared altogether.

In the “War on Drugs,” civilians have been subject to brutal physical and sexual violence while in military custody. These actions have largely gone unpunished by the nation’s government. This also includes more than 400 instances of violence perpetrated against members of the country’s media.

Sign the petition to demand that the military of Mexico end its violent treatment toward civilians. Demand that the government investigate the issue and provide citizens with a safe and fair legal process. Detainment should never equal a death sentence.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Andrade,

Violence against civilians during military detainment has gotten so bad that the United Nations is urging your government to take a stand. Hundreds of civilians have been injured or killed while held by the military.

If detained, citizens deserve fair and equal legal treatment. They should not fear for their lives. The government must do something immediately to bring an end to the deadly violence perpetrated against your own citizens.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    “Cleanse ye your eyes, so that ye behold no man as different from yourselves. See ye no strangers; rather see all men as friends, for love and unity come hard when ye fix your gaze on otherness….
    And in this new and wondrous age, the Holy Writings say that we must be at one with every people; that we must see neither harshness nor injustice, neither malevolence, nor hostility, nor hate, but rather turn our eyes toward the heaven of ancient glory. For each of the creatures is a sign of God, and it was by the grace of the Lord and His power that each did step into the world; therefore they are not strangers, but in the family; not aliens, but friends, and to be treated as such.” Baha’i Faith Writings
