Aim some noise at Presidente Fox in Mexico

This link takes you to the latest Amnesty Make Some Noise release. In Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua Mexico, over 400 women and girls have been killed or disappeared in the pasts 13 months. An alarming number of these cases are unsolved. There is clear evidence of police and government indifference, botch-ups and worse.

Listen to the song, then go to the action page to add your name to the letter to the Presidente.

I have a friend and colleague who went on an Amnesty mission to Cuidad Juarez last summer. He met with mothers who lost daughters and heard their stories. So much pain... so much indifference. Get angry. Do something.

I have not heard of this! 400? It seems incredible that there isn't more of an uproar. One blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl in the U.S. goes missing, and you hear about it 24 hours a day....
