TAKE ACTION FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
Wendy Deserves Justice
Wendy Galarza is a dedicated childcare worker. She’s passionate about supporting children in their youngest years, because she believes it’s the best way to create kinder and more compassionate societies.
On 9 November 2020, Wendy attended a march organized by feminist collectives in Cancún to demand justice for the murder of a woman known as Alexis. But when a group of demonstrators began pulling down and burning some wooden barriers, police fired shots into the air and, some say, into the crowd. Later, Wendy discovered she had been struck by bullets.
Two days later, she lodged a complaint against the police. It took months for the State Prosecutor to take the investigation seriously. Today, the case continues. Those suspected of criminal responsibility for her shooting have not been brought to justice.
Demand justice for Wendy from Mexico’s authorities.
