The MexicoBlog of the Americas Program, a fiscally sponsored program of the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), is written by Laura Carlsen. I monitor and analyze international press on Mexico, with a focus on security, immigration, human rights and social movements for peace and justice, from a feminist perspective.

Human Rights Violations: 30 femicides in Veracruz since August of last year
Milenio: "From August 29, 2011 to February 8 of this year, in Veracruz state 30 femicides have been counted, said the director of the Collective for Research, Development and Education for Women (ICW), Mayela Garcia Ramirez.
