Event TODAY in New York City: The Drug War-Policing and US Militarism at Home and Abroad

The CIP Americas Program is proud to be a co-sponsor of this event, which brings together the repressive nature of the the U.S. drug war within its borders and in countries like here in Mexico. I hope readers in the New York City area will attend and tell us about it. There is also a livestream for those outside the area (see below).

The U.S. Drug War has fueled mass incarceration and discriminatory policing practices in the U.S. as well as violence and militarization throughout Latin America. This panel will bring together organizers and scholars on both sides of the border to talk about the domestic and international impacts of the Drug War and their strategies to resist this racist, ineffective, and devastating “war.”
