This event is sponsored by the Bay Area Latin America Solidarity Coalition of which ANSWER Coalition is a member.

The violence in Mexico constitutes the world's 3rd most deadly conflict and the U.S. continues to play a huge part through drug prohibition, drug consumption, immigration and trade policies, through illegal gun trafficking, and by arming the Mexican police and military.

Our speakers bring fresh testimony from the people impacted by this violence: indigenous communities, women searching for their family members' bones, migrant families fleeing U.S.-fueled violence, activists dealing with the militarized U.S. border which now continues south to the Guatemala border.

Linda Sanchez
