Nuestra Aparente Rendición

Nuestra Aparente Rendición
Nuestra Aparente Rendición was born in august 2010 after the massacre of 72 migrants in San Fernando, Tamaulipas, in the northeastern part of Mexico. It was born as answer against that terrible event. We made an urgent call to ask how many of us where shocked by the massacre and what could we do. We wanted to generate awareness and reflection in order to organize it and insist on five basic prerequisites to end the war: Restoring the dignity of the victims, right to accurate information, citizen protection, freezing the bank accounts related to criminal organizations and a thorough purge of the governmental authorities that have been collaborating or protecting the criminals or are the criminals themselves.

We are a lawfully constituted civil association outside Mexico (Barcelona) that operates thanks the huge efforts of more tan 70 volunteers and collaborators.

We manage the only national civil body count and naming in Mexico. Since September 12, 2010 (up to march 6, 2014) we have collected the information on more than 47,325 murders. We work closely with missing person’s collectives, associations of orphans, students, indigenous communities, endangered journalists, migrant shelters, refuges for battered and abused women, with men and women that are working for the dignity and peace in Mexico and with every collective that needs care in he middle of this war.

Un proyecto por la paz y el diálogo

THE SITUATION

Mexico is in the middle of an unprecedented state of violence that has worn down several regions of the country and has affected the life of millions of people. Since the beginning of the so called “War on Narco”, declared by former president Felipe Calderón on 2006, there have been almost 150,000 murders (1), between 27,000 and 200,000 missing persons that have been disappeared either by state forces or by criminal organization (2), between 60,000 and 100,000 migrants have been assassinated (3), and at least 170,000 people have been displaced from their homeland (4). Besides these terrifying statistics, Mexico is the most dangerous country –only behind Somalia- for the journalist to perform their job. More journalists and media workers have been killed in Mexico’s democratic period that started in July 2000 than in all World War II or in the last Iraq invasion.


THE BEGINNINGS

Nuestra Aparente Rendicion (NAR) was born as a space to try to understand, think about, accompany and traverse together this tragedy in the most human way possible. NAR is a project that is showing, spreading, denouncing and reflecting about the consequences of the war and, specially, on peace building. We have established an intergenerational and interdisciplinary dialogue between different actors in different places. Our project has been enriched by the participation of other collectives, journalists, artists, professors, students, intellectuals, victims and witnesses


TODAY

After four years and thanks to the hard work and solidarity of dozens of persons our association is already known nationally and internationally. We have become an ethical and citizen reference on the analysis of Mexico’s violence. We have worked with a wonderful multidisciplinary team and we have maintained our humaneness intact in the middle of this human catastrophe. We have devised different forms to think about what is happening in México and try to solve it.


OBJECTIVES

There’s a lot to be done in Mexico, and that is why we want to underpin our project so we can be more helpful. We want to create synergies with others and consolidate different teams that can help us to manage projects on human rights, art and critical thought as tools for social empowerment. We want to escalate our technical capacities and develop security protocols for our collaborators and us. We want also to make it easier to the ones that help us. We want to broaden our perspective and keep joining efforts.

(2) The oficial database is housed by the State Ministry and shows the frightening figure of nearly 27,000 cases, however if we adjust the data with the unreported crimes and the missing migrants we can estimate there can be even 200,000 people missing in México.

Why this is important

We want to spread the word about the humanitarian tragedy that is going on in Mexico and that very few people know outside Mexico because Mexico is usually portrayed as an exotic and friendly country. We want to break with these stereotypes to create awareness, accompany and empower the victims, reclaim the memory, build spaces for dialogue and create effective strategies for peace building.

Our project is for all sensible men and women who are fighting for human rights, freedom of speech and peace.
