The number of women being murdered in Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua is higher than ever

Dear all,

The organization Justicia Para Nuestras Hijas in Ciudad Juarez keep on their website, an updated list of the women continually murdered in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua and the area around. In 2010, 446 women and girls names, the youngest 3 years old and the oldest 85, are on this list. In 2011, 259 girls and women have been killed, the last victim was added on the list Aug 31st. The media is silent.

Please contact me if you would like to participate in Desconocida and embroider the women´s names on the labels. Action cards have been made so you can also send your protest to the Mexican Government. If thousands engage and send cards from all over the world, maybe it will make an impression? At least they will know we see, hear and care.

In Pau, France, the Musèe Bernadotte and the Atelier Bon'Art will arrange workshops 17th and 18th of September,
This will be the beginning of Desconocida in this city, because later in September and in October more workshops will be held in Community Centers and with non-profit organizations, schools in the area. On Nov 25th, all the labels will be exhibited at Musée Bernadotte, Pau. Please contact Anne Clerget, Bon Art for more information.
