In 1974, Rosendo Radilla Pacheco disappeared at a military checkpoint in southern Mexico. As a prominent activist and mayor, Rosendo fought for access to health and education in Atoyac, in the state of Guerrero-a region historically plagued by hardship and neglected by authorities. Decades later, Radilla's unresolved case reached the Inter-American Court of Human Rights as an emblematic example of government activities during the Dirty War-a period when the authoritarian regimes of the 1960s and 1970s employed military tactics to crush opposition movements. Now Mexico faces charges of crimes against humanity. This video tells the stories of Radilla's daughter, Tita, and other families who have disappeared relatives, who show us how seeking the truth in the past strengthens justice in the future.
