Nataniel Hernández Núñez

HRD, Director
Centro de Derechos Humanos Digna Ochoa

Every time we came out to denounce, support or advise communities, the Mexican State, and specifically the government of Chiapas and the district governments, would devote themselves to discrediting our work.

Nataniel Hernández Núñez is the director of the Centro de Derechos Humanos Digna Ochoa (Digna Ochoa Human Rights Centre), a non-profit civil association based in the Istmo region of Chiapas which works to promote civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights, as well as providing legal advice.

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.
