The Mothers of Plaza Tijuana

Frontera NorteSur, Posted: Sep 26, 2009

TIJUANA -- Inspired by Argentinas Mothers of Plaza de Mayo, relatives of the disappeared staged a demonstration in Tijuana on Sept. 25 to demand answers about the whereabouts of 320 people forcibly disappeared or kidnapped, reports Frontera NorteSur. Relatives plastered pictures of their missing loved ones on the exterior of the government offices. Like Argentinas mothers, Tijuana families plan to stage pot-banging protests every Friday until authorities comply with previous commitments to search for missing persons kidnapped for ransom or by narco-style armed commandos.

The earlier discovery of mass graves containing the remains of victims dissolved in acid has not served to clear up the mystery of the disappeared, said Fernando Ocegueda Flores, secretary of the Tijuana-based Citizens Association against Impunity. Ocegueda claims that members of his group were even told by state law enforcement officials to forget about their missing loved ones. According to Ocegueda, at least four new cases of people disappeared in Tijuana are added to the long list each month.
