Article 19 launches Right to Truth campaign for access to official records on the San Fernando Massacre

The organization Article 19 announced it has launched a campaign directed at Mexico’s Federal Access to Information Institute (Instituto Federal de Acceso a la Información – IFAI) to secure the release of investigative documents relating to the 2010 killing of 72 migrants in Mexico’s northern region of San Fernando, Tamaulipas. Article 19 has argued that the state of Mexico has the obligation to disclose the truth about the incident, and provide information to the victims, family members, and society at large.

For more on the Article 19 campaign, and the case of the San Fernando killing of 72 migrants, read the article at Animal Político (in Spanish).
