Movement for Peace with Justice: Mexico’s Caravan for Peace Unites Voices of Resistance in Oaxaca

A report from Witness for Peace on the multiple issues of justice and human rights in Oaxaca presented to the Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity when it visited on Sept. 12.

Witness for Peace: "In an effort to unite the southern half of the country with the movement against the drug war, the Caravan for Peace and Justice with Dignity is currently traveling (from) Mexico City, through seven Mexican states, and Guatemala. While the war on drugs and state repression play out differently in the southern half of the country, many pressing issues threaten the livelihood and security of these communities. The Caravan’s southern tour brings together the voices of those suffering violence in order to develop new peaceful strategies for repairing the social disintegration that is endemic to Mexican society under the militarized drug war."
