We all hope to have the freedom to freely express thoughts, to share ideas and ideals. We are outraged, deeply offended when someone tries to silence the voice of those who defend their opinions and ideology. Journalists, are usually the most critical situations of this nature. Milocas Pereira is one of many disappeared journalists under these circumstances. Her unalienable human right should and must be respected, not dismissed and forgotten. We believe it is an enforced disappearance.

"Enforced disappearance" is defined in Article 2 of the Convention as the arrest, detention, abduction or any other form of deprivation of liberty by agents of the state or by persons or groups of persons acting with the authorization, support or acquiescence of the state, followed by a refusal to acknowledge the deprivation of liberty or by concealment of the fate or whereabouts of the disappeared person, which place such a person outside the protection of the law.

The widespread or systematic use of enforced disappearance is further defined as a crime against humanity in Article 6.
