Mexico: Where is the justice for Actael Evangelicals?

In the southern Mexican State of Chiapas, women have been separated from their husbands for more than a dozen years, some of their children have never met their fathers or grandfathers, and others were too young to remember when the men were taken to prison on false charges of participating in a massacre in which 45 people were killed in the town of Actael in Chiapas State. This is just another case of the persecution and injustice of Evangelical Christians in Mexico.
