Let's unite forces to Stop Plan Merida

Let's end financing the Mexican security forces with our taxes

Call your Senators and Representative

(call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for them by name)



Sample script: I am calling to urge Senator/Representative _________ to do all you can to end Plan Merida and cut all US funding and training of the Mexican security forces. With grave human rights violations and extrajudicial executions by the security forces, it is time the US cuts cuts all funding to the Mexican security forces. Even the State Department's recently released 2014 Human Rights Report makes clear that Mexico is not meeting human rights standards; as a result a mere 15% of funding was withheld. I urge you to speak out for cutting all Plan Merida funding. Additionally, with regards to the case of the 43 disappeared students, I ask you support the Inter-American Human Rights Commission's Group of Independent Experts request to investigate and interview the Mexican military, which the government of Mexico has not yet allowed them to do.
