Mexican Caravanistas Cross Border & Journey Across US, Their Message, Peace, Justice & Dignity, and No To The increasing
Militarization In The Fight Against Drug Abuse
Mexican activists in the first bi-national caravan of more than 115 mostly victims of the drug war arrived in New York on their month-long journey across the US. They called attention to organized crime, money laundering by HSCB, Citibank and other greedy financial institutions who they say are equally responsible for the bloodshed caused by the drug merchants and corrupt Mexican government officials serving them and supported as well by the US government. Memorializing the more than 60,000 who have died, including the son of poet Javier Sicilia, a caravan organizer, on both sides of the border, the message is to stop militarizing and treat drug
abuse as a public health problem, not a war

For the past four years, he has videotaped police officers as they
perform illegal stop and frisks in Harlem as part of his coverage
of the Harlem community as a citizen journalist. Now Jazz Hayden

and prison abuse, is currently being persecuted by the NYPD and
is fighting his own felony charges.
