The Bi-National 1% Put Profit Above Human Life

In response:
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.

Now read the underlying truth that Professor James Petras writes about:  “Imperialism: Bankers, Drug Wars and Genocide”

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.
