Peace Brigades International (PBI) Mexico would like to express their concern for the security of the staff and residents of the Belen Migrants Shelter in Saltillo, Coahuila State, which has suffered several acts of intimidation over recent months.
The intimidatory acts reflect a worrying pattern of insecurity and aggressions against those who defend the rights of migrants in Mexico. This trend has also affected Father Alejandro Solalinde, who runs the Hermanos en el Camino Migrant Shelter in Ciudad Ixtepec, Oaxaca and who receives the accompaniment of PBI volunteers.
