Mexican art show focuses on weapons, effects

Seattle PI : "An art and photo show focusing on the trade in firearms and their deadly effects in Mexico may soon be going to the United States, the same place where many of the weapons come from.

The show, "A Farewell to Arms. Contraband on the Border," uses photos and artwork to illustrate how the illegal weapons trade has affected Mexico, where more than 47,000 people have died in drug-related violence since late 2006.

The non-governmental groups Global Exchange and the Washington Office on Latin America plan to take the exhibit to the U.S. capital later this year. It closes in Mexico City on April 15." read more
