Mexico: Indigenous environmental activist named ‘prisoner of conscience’ | Amnesty International: Ildefonso Zamora Baldomero was arrested in November 2015 in the Indigenous Tlahuica community of San Juan Atzingo, 80km south-west of Mexico City. He is accused of participating in a burglary in July 2012.

“Ildefonso Zamora is being punished for speaking out against the damage being done to his community’s territory and environment.

Protecting the environment and defending human rights are not crimes,” said Erika Guevara-Rosas, Americas Director at Amnesty International.
