On 23 January, human rights defender Patricia Barragán Reyes was reportedly kidnapped and threatened with rape. This was an apparent attempt to intimidate those campaigning on behalf of people detained by the authorities after demonstrations in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco State. Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of Patricia Barragán Reyes, Eduardo Carvajal Avila and others campaigning on this issue.
