One year after the murder of Mexican Activist Marisela Escobedo, what has changed in Mexico? Not a damn thing

REPORTING FROM MEXICO:  It is hard to believe that Marisela Escobedo, the Mexican activist who was seeking justice for her daughter's who had been murdered and her killer released, was killed a year ago.  

So, what has happened in these 365 days since Marisela's passing?

Not a damn thing.

Mexico's violence is greater nationwide than every before.  There is more impunity and the Mexican people are still hoping for their government to find a solution to this problem.

Meanwhile, more activists are being murdered and sadly to say, more will die.  

I had hoped that we had better news to give Marisela a year after her passing, we do not.

The answer is not in the government, it is in the people and they are simply to busy doing their Christmas shopping.
