From our Director, +Laura Carlsen: In another gesture that showed that this #Pope is not the traditional Vatican company man, the Argentine pope visited the grave of Don Samuel Ruiz, the Bishop of San Cristobal de las Casas, who took up the indigenous cause for justice as his own and as an obligation of the church. Who was Samuel Ruiz? http://www.cipamericas.org/archives/18405

The election results in Venezuela and Argentina, the Brazilian crisis, and the erosion of the “citizens’ revolution” in Ecuador are part of a change in political climate that puts the transformative processes underway on the defensive. http://www.cipamericas.org/archives/18396

The latest from +Laura Carlsen: "What is extraordinary is not the crime. The crime of disappearance is part of the structural violence that has become daily life in Mexico. What is extraordinary is the families’ fight for their missing loved ones. These men and women are an example of courage and good citizenship for the whole country." http://www.cipamericas.org/archives/18390

Since the surge of unaccompanied minors on the US border in 2014, numbers of Central American migrants have not decreased overall, as both the US and Mexico carry out mass deportations. International and U.S. legal protections and procedures for refugees guarantee basic rights and safety for asylum-seekers. Are these requirements being met? http://www.cipamericas.org/archives/18369 #USRefugeeCrisis #HumanRights #CentralAmericanMigrants

Flores is accused of stealing $15 million donated by the Taiwanese government for the victims of the earthquake that struck the country in 2001. The trial will determine if he is guilty or not of the three charges he faces. http://www.cipamericas.org/archives/18364

La Corte Suprema de El Salvador permitió a partir de 2015 que INTERPOL capture a prófugos amnistiados en el país. Con esta resolución, España vuelve a la carga para buscar justicia en el caso de los sacerdotes jesuitas españoles y dos colaboradoras asesinados en el campus de la Universidad José Simeón Cañas UCA, en San Salvador por miembros del batallón Atlacatl de la Fuerza Armada salvadoreña durante la guerra civil en 1989. http://www.cipamericas.org/es/archives/18357

La favela es un mundo complejo, en el que conviven la pobreza con la violencia policial y del tráfico. En una primera mirada, parece el espacio más difícil para construir alternativas desde abajo y desde la izquierda. Sin embargo, cientos de activistas eligieron las favelas como el lugar donde crear lo nuevo. http://www.cipamericas.org/es/archives/18343

Los resultados electorales en Venezuela y Argentina, la crisis brasileña y el desgaste de la “revolución ciudadana” ecuatoriana, forman parte de un cambio de clima político que coloca a la defensiva los procesos de transformación en curso. http://www.cipamericas.org/es/archives/18117

Encontré a Lourdes en Tapachula, última etapa del recorrido de tres semanas de la XI Caravana de Madres de Migrantes Desaparecidos, un grupo de treinta seis mujeres y cinco hombres de Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras y Guatemala que atravesó más de 2,500 quilómetros de territorio mexicano para buscar a sus familiares que migraron y desaparecieron en el camino. http://www.cipamericas.org/es/archives/18149
