I cannot keep calm when peaceful protests are criminalized, students and teachers put in jail for expressing their dissent.
I cannot keep calm when those responsible for vandalism are free.
I cannot keep calm in the face of torture, of enforced disappearances.
I cannot keep calm when 14 protesters are still in jail and could receive up to 30 years, without bail, for expressing their dissatisfaction with Mexican “democracy”.
I cannot keep calm until I know they are free and the government makes reparations to the almost 100 people it unjustly detained.
I cannot keep calm when femicides are growing and the government does nothing.
I cannot keep calm in a country where almost 50% of the population lives in poverty.
I cannot keep calm when traditional media manipulates information.
I cannot keep calm in a country where millions mourn the death of a singer but not the deaths of indigenous peoples who demand their rights.
I cannot keep calm when there are almost 100,000 people killed in the past six years and their deaths are not investigated.
I cannot keep calm when the government deletes public information on disappearances.
I am Mexican and I WILL NOT keep calm.
