Continued focus on Mexican child detention
After the very successful launch of the Campaign month in Mexico on 7 Novermber, with the screening of “The Invisible Picture Show”, an innovative animated documentary which uses the real voices of children in detention, our colleagues hosted another public event in Tapachula, located on the border with Guatemala.
 
The detention center in Tapachula is the largest in Latin America and is also the main point for deportation of the large majority of the migrant children detained in Mexico. There, the Campaign visited migrant shelters for children in the border region and meet organisations that work with these children.

El mes de la campaña prosigue su curso en México
Tras el gran éxito del lanzamiento del Mes de la campaña en México el pasado 7 de noviembre con la proyección de The Invisible Picture Show, un innovador documental de animación que utiliza voces reales de niños detenidos, nuestros compañeros organizaron otro acto público en la localidad de Tapachula, en la frontera con Guatemala. El centro de detención de Tapachula es el más grande de Latinoamérica y también el principal punto de deportación de la gran mayoría de niños inmigrantes detenidos en México. Aquí, la Campaña puso en marcha actividades de control a ambos lados de la frontera y celebró reuniones con organizaciones y centros de acogida que trabajan con estos niños.
