A Spanish-language report examines cases of severe human rights violations in which the Mexican state has failed to disclose information, crafted untrue narratives, or engaged in tactics to intimidate victims and their families. The report was developed by several MacArthur grantees: Article 19, Centro de Derechos Humanos de la Montaña Tlachinollan, Centro de Derechos Humanos Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez, Ciudadanos en Apoyo de los Derechos Humanos, Comisión Mexicana de Defensa y Promoción de Derechos Humanos, and Fundar. It asserts that a primary obstacle to peace in Mexico is the lack of public access to accurate and honest information and emphasizes the need for mechanisms that enable this access.
