Indigenous Wixarika Fighting Mining Murdered in Central Mexico

Please see Censored News earlier coverage:

Censored News broadcast live with Wixarika at the Cancun climate summit, with our friend Robert Free from Seattle and Ofelia Rivas, O'odham.
During the interview, Robert Free invited Wixarikas to Frank's Landing, and they were later able to travel there in this powerful act of solidarity.
Huicholes are fighting a Canadian silver mining, the First Majestic Silver Corporation, in a sacred area.
At their sacred place, they offer prayers for the balance of the world.

From Ofelia Rivas, O'odham, responding to assassination of Wixarikas and today's news. -- "Great work Censored News and always busy. This attack continues and the true warriors are fighting these battles without non-profit salaries and funding. No undignified world profiteers at the forefront. Just the original prayers and ceremonies of the people that just want peaceful existence within their rightful lands and inherent cultures. Thanks Brenda Norrell, great work."
