Migrant women from El Barrio, New York participate in the International Tribunal of Conscience.



On September 26, 2015, the women of Movement for Justice in El Barrio joined the people who are fighting for justice all over the world and gave testimony in an international platform on the struggle of migrant women against the dispossession which leads to forced migration, and against the vicious displacement from housing in order to rezone the cities between the rich and the poor. They spoke before the International Tribunal of Conscience of Peoples in Movement.

On the anniversary of the disappearance of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa, and to honour them, they shared their case with other organizations that fight for justice and human rights, such as the families of the 43 missing Ayotzinapa students, and Las Abejas of Acteal, among many others.

This Tribunal was composed of academics, intellectuals and human rights specialists, such as Noam Chomsky, Greg Grandin, Katrina Encompass, Boaventura Sousa Santos, Laura Carlsen, former special UN rapporteurs Rodolfo Stavenhagen and Jorge Bustamante, among others, and of organizations such as the  National Lawyers’ Guild and Fuerza Mundial, among others. At the end of the trial of the court that lasted all weekend, a verdict was ruled by the jurors – unionists, judges, intellectuals, social activists, lawyers and defenders of human rights – from the United States, Mexico, other Latin American countries, Europe and Asia, who hold responsible the governments and institutions as far as they deserve for the widely propagated abuses of human rights.
