Anti-Drug War Caravan Arrives in Mexico from Honduras

HeadlineApr 12, 2016

Activists from across the Americas have converged on Mexico City as part of a caravan calling for an end to the U.S.-backed war on drugs. The Caravan for Peace, Life and Justice departed Honduras last month and has traveled through El Salvador, Guatemala and much of Mexico, with the goal of reaching New York City ahead of a U.N. special assembly on drugs next week. Among the activists is Erika Llanos, whose child went missing in Mexico.

Erika Llanos: “It is children and women who are the main victims of this criminal war that has seen this become an armed conflict.”
