The Border Network for Human Rights has coordinated community-based campaigns to document cases of law enforcement misconduct.Â Local residents were trained as Rights Promoters on how to identify and document law enforcement abuse.Â More than 50 Rights Promoters from various border communities in the region have been the leading force in observing, educating and documenting the status of human and civil rights in their own communities.Â It is through these community efforts that BNHR is able to release this report which brings attention to the state of civil and human rights through testimonials, graphics and data collected from 2000 to 2003.Â This report is also a desperate cry from border communities for justice, human rights and peace.
