This Human Rights Center expresses its outrage at the inadequate performance of the Mexican state in providing medical care to the political prisoner Alberto Patishtán Gomez (hereinafter Patishtán), who for several years has been reporting his poor state of health, and the lack of interest of the Mexican State in treating him, which has resulted in Patishtán gradually losing his eyesight.
The undersigned domestic and international organizations, groups, collectives, and individuals join in the dignified struggle maintained by Professor Alberto Patishtán Gómez and we demand his immediate release.
The Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas Human Rights Center (Frayba) announces the release of David Potenciano Torres (henceforth David), arbitrarily deprived of his liberty and subjected to torture by authorities of the Specialized Attorney Against Organized Crime on May 25th 2011 so that he would confess to the murder of rancher Pedro Fonz Ramos.

Today, August 30th 2011, we announce the release of our 2010 Report, “The Earth's pulse beats along the paths of resistance,” in which we address the current situation of human rights, processes of comprehensive rights defense, and the exercise of rights during the period of April 2010 to March 2011.
Today, we here at Frayba join with the National March, expressing our indignation and condemnation of the violence that is experienced day after day in our communities all across Mexico. This violence is due to the implementation of the failed policies of the “war on organized crime,” a war declared by President Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, endorsed by the legislative branch, and legalized by the judicial branch.
