Derechos Human Rights and Equipo Nizkor invite you to join a new information/discussion list on the criminal procedures against Pinochet and other Chilean, Argentine and Uruguayan repressors in Spain, England and other European countries.

Information sent to the list will include press releases from human rights organizations and other groups working against impunity, news stories and articles, announcements of relevant activities, urgent actions and other pertinent material. The list can be also be used to coordiante actions, ask questions, and things of the sort.

The focus of this list will be the criminal procedures against Pinochet, so the news material which is currently sent to the mailing list (and includes news on the trial in Spain from the major Argentine newspapers) will not be /systematically/ sent to this list. If you want to receive that material, subscribe to the argentine list (by sending a message to Bear in mind that that mailing list is in Spanish only. This forum is exclusively for people who support the struggle against impunity by human rights violators. This is not a place where to engage in apologia of human rights violations, argue about politics or make personal attacks. Those who don't respect the rules of the list will be unsubscribed.

This is a bilingual (Spanish/English) list and thus material in either (or both) languages will be accepted. If this proves unworkable, we may divide the list in two in the future.

The list is moderated, and the current list moderator and administrator is Margarita Lacabe ( Please write to her with questions or comments.

OR, if you rather get the digest (a message which incorporates all the messages sent to the list in a 48-hours period), send a message to:
