Nestora Salgado has been wrongfully incarcerated in high security detention center of El Rincon, Nayarit, for crimes she did not commit. She is an activist of Human Rights Indigenous people and she organized Community police to defend themself the organized crime.
She denounced robbery of evidence that ended in two assassinations and new evidence has surfaced that shows public officials linked with Drugs Trafficking. Nestora Salgado is innocent and the Government of United States and Ban Ki Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, should take action to release her from prison immediately.

 

Nestora Salgado ha sido injustamente encarcelada en un penal de alta seguridad en El Rincón, Tepic Nayarit. Ella es una activista de derechos humanos de los pueblos indígenas de Guerrero, y organizó la Policía comunitaria en Olinalá para defenderse del crimen organizado. 

Ella denunció el robo de evidencia de un doble asesinato y denunció los vículos de narcotráfico de funcionarios públicos de Olinalá. la comandante Nestora, como le dice de cariño su pueblo, es inocente, y como ciudadana estadounidense, el gobierno de Estados Unidos y el Secretario General de la ONU deberían tomar las medidas necesarias con el gobierno mexicano para su inmediata liberación.
