Invisible Victims – an Exhibition about Migrants on their way through Mexico
1st July 2012 - 31st July 2012
Since 2009 Amnesty International has documented the alarming pattern of abuses against irregular migrants in transit through Mexico, particularly Central Americans, attempting to cross Mexico in order to reach the border with the US. In April 2010 Amnesty International published the report Invisible victims – migrants on the move in Mexico documenting systematic abuses against migrants. The report demonstrated the particular vulnerability of migrants, especially women and children, to abuse and their lack of access to justice, remedy or protection.
