La última Caravana de Pilar ¿Lo han visto? Aquí fue el último lugar que se le vio, nos dijeron que lo habían visto en esta zona”. Son las frases que emplean las madres para acercarse a los transeúntes del lugar, para obtener más información sobre el paradero de su familiar desaparecido en México en su intento para llegar a los Estados Unidos. La Caravana de Madres Centroamericanas de 2017, realizaron un recorrido del 1 al 18 de diciembre a lo largo de 4000km en diferentes puntos de México, zonas en donde tienen registrada la última llamada que recibieron de su familiar o pistas que recientemente han obtenido, producto de la búsquedas por parte Movimiento Migrante Mesoamericano y familiares.
Al inicio del recorrido de la caravana Dilma Pilar de Escobar “Doña Pilar” continúo su búsqueda en las calles de Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas en zonas donde tenía información de la última localización de su hija Olga Romero Medina, dato que obtuvo a través de una fotografía reciente que recibió por teléfono. Como parte de la búsquedas Doña Pilar pegó carteles con la fotografía de su hija, en el momento la imagen fue reconocida por varias personas. Días después, durante el trayecto de la caravana, coordinadores de la caravana recibieron una llamada proveniente de una persona que reconoció el rostro de Olga . Finalmente Pilar pudo reencontrarse con su hija, después de ocho años sin saber de ella. La mayoría de los migrantes pierden contacto con sus familia debido a la la violencia que sufren en su camino, como persecución, la trata de personas, detenciones arbitrarias, malos procesos legales o extorsiones que viven los familiares en Centroamérica.

Mother Lioness Target Locked On Zebra
The Lioness left 2 of her cubs to hide in the grass and left to arrange food for them. Lying low, crawling, keeping herself out of the view she advanced towards the Zebra. Around 70 feet from Zebra the Lioness hid behind a parked vehicle and waited for Zebra to move towards her so as to improve her chances of making a successful kill. She waited for 10-15 minutes but the Zebra never moved. Finally she went for the sprint from 70-80 feet but in vain as the Zebra flew away. It was really awesome...

Image: Dhritiman Mukherjee // The Sanctuary Nature Foundation (@sanctuaryasia) is pleased to announce the release of a monetary grant worth Rs. 50,000/- from its flagship Mud on Boots Project to grassroots #con#conservation/a> Sevaram Malli Parihar for his #conservation work in #Rajasthan.Parihar lives in the village of #Kheechan, which serves as a winter #migration site for thousands of #Demoiselle#Cranes from Southern Europe, North Africa, and parts of Russia. Other than rescuing and treating injured #birds, Parihar has been a relentless and successful advocate for their conservation.
Upon discovering that cranes were being electrocuted by the high-voltage electric poles erected around their feeding grounds in Kheechan, he filed complaints with the Deputy Collector of Phallodi tehsil. Since then, he has been monitoring the deaths of #DemoiselleCranes due to these high power electric currents, and has written countless letters to the electricity board and other authorities in an effort to resolve the issue. Parihar’s activism bore fruit in October 2017 when the High Court took cognizance of his advocacy, and stipulated measures for the conservation of Demoiselle Cranes in Kheechan. The court directed the relocation of five towers of 400 KV electricity that pose a risk to the cranes; the extension of the cranes’ feeding grounds by 3000 sq. m.; the reservation of 100 acres of land for the movement of cranes; and the provision of three new water tanks during the migration months. Further, the court ordered for an expert committee to be instituted under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary of Rajasthan State to look into protecting the movement of the cranes.
The Sanctuary Nature Foundation’s Mud On Boots Project empowers and support grassroots conservationists across #India, regardless of their academic qualifications or affiliations. This particular grant was made possible by the generosity of artist Shilpa Sharma, co-founder of Jaypore, who held a fundraiser for the cause in November 2017.

This is Marziya. She is three years old. Yesterday, on the way from Herat in Western Afghanistan to Kabul in Central Afghanistan, the Bus she was sitting in with her father, mother and uncle was caught in an armed clash between government and anti-government forces. It is the second time that she had to fear for her life and watch other people around her being mortally wounded. Because that would have been the second time in just under three weeks that this little girl got shot. The scar underneath her left ear shows where the bullet entered, broke her jaw, and got stuck in the bottom of her mouth. It happened while she was migrating with her family to neighboring Iran through Pakistan. Her father, an uneducated daily laborer, wanted to take his family to Iran for a better life. “Life in Afghanistan is so hard. In our district in Kunduz, the fighting has become really bad. We don’t have electricity or access to other public services, and there are no jobs.” That is why he decided to take the family to Iran, but their car was shot at as they were attempting to cross the Pakistani-Iranian border. His wife was hit in the sholder, his brother in the chest, and little Noorzia in her face. After emergency treatment in Iran, they were deported back to Afghanistan. IOM staff in Herat took them to the hospital to take care of their wounds and facilitated the family’s travel to Kabul. “I will never migrate again. In just a few days, me and my family members were almost killed twice.” As the security situation worsens in his province, endangering his relatives’ lives to get caught in crossfire, limiting the access of the government and aid organizations to deliver services or for the economy to develop, they return to an uncertain future. Safe migration, for the benefit of all. #migration#afghanistan

Are you worried about immigration detention? Live in Liverpool? Come to our workshop on 24 Jan 2018. Details on the website (link in bio)
Anyone who has not been granted leave to remain in the UK, as a refugee or under any other immigration status, is at risk of being taken and held in an immigration detention centre. This can happen suddenly at any time, but there are certain times in the legal process when you are more at risk.
Being in this situation can be very stressful. Being detained can be very traumatic. But there are many things you can do to prepare in case this happens, to make it less likely to happen, to make it less traumatic if it does happen, and to get out and back home more quickly.
