Communities Under Siege

Published: September 27, 2010, Author: JayTaber

In February 2010, Bety Carino, a Mixtec organizer from Oaxaca spoke at the Frontline Defenders conference in Dublin, Ireland about the aboriginal struggle against the free trade invaders in Mexico.

In April 2010, Carino and Finnish human rights observer Jyri Antero Jaakkola were murdered by pro-government paramilitaries who ambushed a humanitarian peace caravan bringing food and medicine to Oaxaca’s indigenous communities under siege.
