One year later, Marisela Escobedo

I painted this portrait of activist Marisela Escobedo at the beginning of 2011. Today one year after being killed there is news that her killer has been found.
I thought then that the press and people's attention and indignation was going to help stop the killings. But no, human right activists are now even a bigger target than one year ago. Let's not forget.
