Political prisoner and indigenous leader Nestora Salgado has now been on hunger strike for 21 days. She is demanding to be released, and is also protesting the failure of the Mexican government to transfer her to a facility in Mexico City where she can receive much-needed medical care.
Last week, the final court documents were signed directing that Nestora be moved to Mexico City and the transfer was scheduled for last Friday or Saturday morning. But as of this writing, she remains in the remote maximum security prison in Tepic, Nayarit. In response, Nestora announced that she will quit taking even liquids.
