BBC News - Mexico anti-drug convoy crosses border to accuse US: "A 'peace caravan' which has spent a week travelling through Mexico to protest against drugs-related violence has crossed the border in the US.
Mexican poet Javier Sicilia, who led the convoy, said the US bore a 'grave responsibility' for failing to tackle the drugs crisis.
He told supporters in El Paso, Texas that US citizens who used drugs were also partly to blame for the violence. ...
He repeated his call that the US should end its Merida Initiative, which trains and supports the Mexican army in its war against drug traffickers.
"The US has a grave responsibility in all this, when its citizens remain silent, they are imposing war on us," said Mr Sicilia.
He called on people in the US to put more pressure on officials to end the violence, but added that individuals also had a role to play in reducing the demand for narcotics.
