Movement for Peace with Justice: 'Peace caravan' crossing Mexico to protest drug war

MSNBC account of the start of the Mexican caravan to oppose the war on drugs.

'Peace caravan' crossing Mexico to protest drug war - World news - Americas - msnbc.com: "Hundreds of Mexicans began a weeklong caravan on Saturday to protest the country's bloody drug war, led by a crusading poet whose son was murdered by suspected cartel hitmen.

Human rights activists and families of victims of violence piled into 13 buses and more than two dozen cars to set out on a 12-state tour that will end in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico's most violent drug war city on the U.S. border.

'We hope the authorities realize this is a national emergency and if they don't (listen), the situation will become even more painful,' said poet-turned-activist Javier Sicilia."
