Since December 2006, when the U.S. drug war was launched in Mexico, seventy thousand Mexicans have lost their lives to drug war violence. While this may seem like a small price to pay to US companies that manufacture weapons and surveillance equipment used in this war, to Mexicans it is a living nightmare. As Laura Carlsen reports, Mexicans on both sides of the border have launched their own initiative–a caravan for peace.

We're fighting for our lives

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
