Mexican authorities implicated in violence, but U.S. security aid still flows, Cora Currier, Jesse Franzblau (2015)

Date: 08 May 2015

The article focuses on the human rights abuses (unlawful killings, physical abuse, torture and disappearances) which take place in Mexico as a result of the funding given by the US to fight the war on drugs.
