Solidarity Statement
December 22, 2010
(Updated February 14, 2011)

Arte Sana joins the following victim assistance centers and coalitions in the United States to denounce the brutal murder of Marisela Escobedo Ortiz who was gunned down in front of the governor's office in Chihuahua, Mexico on December 16, as she demonstrated on behalf of her murdered daughter Rubí Frayre Escobedo and countless other victims of violence.

Violence knows no borders, so we urge officials to protect victims and prevent re-victimization by bringing swift justice to ALL victims of crime on both sides of the border.

Arte Sana se suma a los siguientes centros de asistencia y coaliciones para víctimas en los Estados Unidos para denunciar el brutal asesinato de Marisela Escobedo Ortiz, quien fue baleada en frente del Palacio de Gobierno en Chihuahua, México el 16 de diciembre, mientras participaba en una manifestación en nombre de su hija asesinada Rubí Frayre Escobedo y de un sinnúmero de víctimas de violencia.

Porque la violencia no conoce fronteras, urgimos a los oficiales que protejan a TODAS las víctimas del crimen y prevengan la revictimización por medio de la aplicación justa y rápida de la justicia en ambos lados de la frontera.

Victim rights are human rights!
¡Los derechos de las víctimas son derechos humanos!
