Free Nestora Salgado

The Mexican government formed a special police force to protect businesses from kidnapping and extortion by criminal gangs. Organized crime has become a rampant concern in the indigenous villages of Mexico as has been the case in El Salvador, Nicaragua and other parts of Central America. U.S. naturalized citizen, Nestora Salgado was seized without an arrest warrant by Mexican federal soldiers last August and has been incarcerated in Mexico ever since. She was a leader in community policing activities against organized crime in her home village in the State of Guerrero, Mexico. National and International organizations from Australia to the Dominican republic have campaigned to Free Nestora Salgado. We discuss Nestora Salgado’s case and organized crime in Mexico with Nestora Salgado’s daughter, Grisel Rodriguez and Executive Director of Tierra Nueva, a Christian ministry in Burlington, WA Bob Ekblad. The ministry works closely with marginalized communities such as inmates, ex-offenders, immigrant communities and the homeless.
