Susana Chavez, a human rights activist, was best known for her poetry and actions to help raise awareness of the violence towards women, especially in the border-city of Juarez. After years of activism, Chavez has fallen to the same violence she has fought against. Via Fox News Latino:

A poet and women’s rights activist was murdered in Ciudad Juarez, a gritty border metropolis that has become Mexico’s most violent city, officials and associates of the victim said.

Susana Chavez’s body was found last week, but it was not identified until Tuesday, prosecutors said.

Chavez’s left hand was chopped off and her body was dumped in a poor neighborhood in downtown Juarez, the Chihuahua state Attorney General’s Office said.

Chavez organized protests to draw attention to crimes against women in the border city and participated in poetry readings that she dedicated to murdered women.

    in the world we live in, anyone that tries to make a change or take a stand about anything needs to give serious thought to their own security, no matter how peaceful you are if someone has something to lose to your efforts they will try to hurt you.

    This is terribly sad, esp. since I work near Kentucky, who is about to pass even harsher laws than Arizona on immigration. Mexico is a war zone; plain and simple. This woman should have been offered asylum, and in my opinion, all “illegals” given it as well. What a terribly fucked up country…

      No dude, that girl had nothing to do with the Mexican State, she was alone. The Mexican government didn’t send anything, the Mexican government did NOTHING. Maybe the killers in this city are members of the local government.
      Did you know that some narc factions are altruistic and religious societies? Everything it’s fucked up right here.
