Caravan for Peace
It is foolish to believe that failed drug, weapons, and immigration policies are anything less than a bi-national problem. Yet anyone who has studied these problems for years knows that neither the US or Mexican government will acknowledge this and its insidious underlying truth: the 1% run US government and the 1% run Mexican government care only about profit.
Take the time to read how the US Department of State raves about “our” relationship with Mexico. http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/35749.htm
Now read the underlying truth that Professor James Petras writes about: “Imperialism: Bankers, Drug Wars and Genocide” http://petras.lahaine.org/?p=1855
Do you think the Mexican undocumented would come or stay in the US if they could make a decent living wage at home?
Do you actually think that the bottom line to this whole bi-national crisis is about anything other than profit?
I salute Javier Sicilia and the Caravan for Peace. They challenge both governments and the 1%’s status quo of putting profit above human life.
Americans need to wake up and break through the usual US propaganda about Mexico, drug wars, weapons, and immigration.
We can learn a great deal from Javier Sicilia and his Caravan. We can learn how to organize and peacefully protest in both countries. We can expose the truth and have a chance to fix both broken countries.
We can both have our versions of Arab Springs in both countries. http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=6706102374255163284#editor/target=post;postID=8289701343797876470
