Circumstances of Disappearance

Until two years before his abduction he had held the post of promotor agrario, a government post for agrarian development. Following his helping of local peasants with their land claims, Víctor Pineda Henestrosa was removed from his post. Nevertheless, he continued to act informally as an advisor to peasants in Juchitán, as a leader of the Coalición Obrera, Campesina y Estudiantil del Istmo (COCEI), Worker-Peasant-Student Coalition of the Isthmus.
