Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
This moving and provocative documentary chronicles the historic journey of the "U.S./Mexico Caravan for Peace," which from August 12th to September 12th, 2012, crossed the entire United States calling for an end to the war on drugs and bearing witness to the human rights nightmare unfolding in Mexico. Radio documentarian Chris Moore-Backman travelled with the caravan for 5 days, capturing the spirit and message of those on board, and examining the deep connection between the struggle for peace in Mexico and the struggle to end the racist system of mass incarceration in the United States. The show features a dialog between Michelle Alexander (author of "The New Jim Crow") and Javier Sicilia (renowned Mexican poet and leader of the "Mexican Movement for Peace, with Justice and Dignity"). It also includes heartbreaking testimonies of mothers of victims of Mexico's horrific drug war violence, and interviews with the U.S. and Mexican activists who launched this historic bi-national effort. A powerful testament to twin justice movements, which points to the crucial need for movement unity across races, and across borders.  Michelle Alexander, Javier Sicilia, John Lindsay-Poland, Janice Gallagher, Roberto Lovato
