missions tried to enter Tlalnepantla yesterday to look for refugees living in the hills above the town.
One group was small, and was able to pass, but as they walked through the woods a police helicopter was following them, (hovering only 100 feet above ground) and so the refugees ran away.
The other group contained people from Atenco, and was greeted by 200 riot police. Without warning, they were attacked, tear gassed, and bones were broken. I was almost arrested (and would have been deported) but was able to escape when the police were distracted.
One German international observer was detained and we believe he was deported.
The third mission arrived at nightfall. We sent only women, and so the police were obliged to let them pass. However, they were heavily escorted by police. They delivered food to women and children hiding in
their homes, afraid to turn on the lights or go outside. Their husbands are missing. One baby died because medical care was unavailable. My wife, a doctor, was able to treat some people.
This story is simply not getting the attention it deserves. It is worse than Chiapas, where the people and their allies are at least in a position to defend themselves.

A simple text message or phone call to an operator from a suspicious spouse or boss can send one of the new DIY spying services off to track a person down. Another call or a visit to a special website will then tell you where they are.
And yet three otters have recently lost their lives through stupidity and deliberate criminal acts. The cases all involve otters from different areas which have been killed or wilfully taken from the wild.
