9N Victims Committee


The 9N Victims Committee is a collective of feminists, students, teachers and victims of violence that was established following the protest against femicide and gender based violence on 9 November 2020 in Cancún for those seeking justice for the victims of police violence and excessive use of force during the protests. The Committee is currently comprised of 13 members, ten women and three men, who for more than five months have been seeking accountability, access to justice and guarantees of non-repetition. Since the events of 9 November 2020, victims and survivors pursuing collective justice have been subjected to harassment and surveillance by police officers, with patrol cars regularly circling around their homes, taking photos and videos of them, and following them on their daily routes.

Human rights defenders (HRDs) and journalists in Mexico are subject to intimidation, legal harassment, arbitrary detention, death threats, acts of physical aggression, enforced disappearances and killings as a result of their activities in defence of human rights and the exercise of freedom of expression and journalism.
