International Visual Action in Solidarity with the Victims of Ayotzinapa
Call for action
Together with Tlachinollan, Centro de Derechos Humanos de la Montaña, the Latinstock Foundation and other Human Rights organizations in Latin America ECCHR calls for an international visual action in solidarity with the victims of kidnapping and murder that happened last September in Iguala, Estado de Guerrero, Mexico.
The visual campaign seeks photographers and groups of students who will pose for a picture with a sign reading in order to express worldwide sympathy and support for the missing students and their parents in their struggle to pursue justice and truth for this brutal and unimaginable act of violence against unarmed young students. The sign reading will send a message for Truth and Justice to prevail in Mexico.
The students and social organizations of Mexico will receive these images and distribute them around the country, in the social networks and in contact with the Mexican Human Rights Organizations such as Tlachinollan, that represents the families of the victims and other Photography and Human Rights organizations in Mexico. For them, this support is essential to strengthen their fight for justice and the respect for Human Rights, a struggle that will gain for them the support of sensible people around the world.
"The Secrecy of Return" by Nghia Nuyen
Until April 2015, ECCHR's office, Berlin
Organized by: ECCHR
In his paintings, installations and performances Nghia Nuyen explores the philosophical dimension of the individual and, as a result, the political. At the age of fourteen Nuyen fled Saigon with his family. He was taken on board the ship Cap Anamur belonging to the organization Deutsche Notärzte and has lived in Germany since 1981. In his work as an artist he stages water crossings, giving a ritualized dimension to his experience of fleeing.
Daily from 10am to 4pm, ECCHR offices (Zossener Str. 55-58, 10961 Berlin)
