Banners placed across Tijuana denounce abuse by state police
Messages ask governor to stop human rights violations
At least twelve handmade banners were placed across Tijuana and Rosarito with messages denouncing abuses by the state police, on Thursday, August 15. The banners displayed numerous messages, asking the governor to intervene in human rights abuses which are allegedly taking place in the area.
No group or person took claim to leaving the banners. One message was placed near the San Ysidro port of entry.
The banners were hung in the morning hours and most were taken down by state police before noon.
