My familiar relation with City Juarez is very strong. I have very much fondness to this city. So I have thought a post wrote on an event that happens there, that is concealed from the world. Without going beyond, in November, when I visited the city, 3 women were murdered. My relative, Socorro Tabuenca, is a director of the Frontier College North (COLEF) and they investigate the events. Which makes me more sensitive to the topic.
The violent death of hundreds of women in the northern Mexican city of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, a border city across the Rio Grande from the US city of El Paso, Texas. Alls cases remain unsolved.
The victims of these crimes have preponderantly been young women, between 17 and 22 years of age. Many were students, and most were maquiladora [workers in foreign owned factories]. A number were relative newcomers to Ciudad Juarez who had migrated from other areas of Mexico. The victims were generally reported missing by their families, with their bodies found days or months later abandoned in vacant lots or outlying areas. In most of these cases there were signs of sexual violence, abuse, torture or in some cases mutilation.
Behind every finished product there is the disciplined and efficient manpower of million workers of low cost of the countries in development that they them manufacture. 70 % of the American factories of Mexico, is in this city. They have bus to be going to work, but they have not bus to return to house. Many women, are kidnapped in this distance.
Approximately, 1000 women have died. The number is confused, for that great possibly, they are buried in the desert, and her corpses will never be opposing.
To forget to live? I think that we are lucky of having born and living in a good place, and it is not of any more, to try to think about the persons, who have not had so much luck in his life.
