Ecumenical Vigil for Acteal, Mexico

There will be an ecumenical vigil on Thursday, December 20, 2007 at 7:30 PM for justice in the Acteal Massacre which took place in Chiapas, Mexico on December 22, 1997.

The incident resulted in the death of 45 unarmed people--mostly women and children, as part of low intensity warfare against organized indigineous people. So far, impunity surrounds this case and the community continues to struggle for justice.

The Vigil will be at St. Anne's Catholic Church (At Gerrard St., east of Broadview and DeGrassi
(Carlton Streetcar).
