On 30th August, 2012 ESCR-Net sent a letter to Excellon Mexico and the Mexican government expressing concern over the recent dismantling of a peaceful protest camp of the Ejido La Sierrita by military and police personnel. The letter addressed reports of threatened legal action made against members of the Ejido La Sierrita and members of the labor union and workers of the Local 309, in an apparent reprisal for their activities in defense of their rights. In addition, ESCR-Net raised concerns regarding the refusal of Excellon Mexico to participate in negotiations with Ejido La Sierrita, alleged lack of compliance by Excellon with several previous agreements made with La Sierrita in 2008, and reported intimidation of people calling for dialogue.
