For many in these United States, images of mass graves in Mexico or stories like the 43 missing Normalista students of Ayotzinapa are disturbing, but far away. For others, Mexico is not just a “foreign policy issue.” Mexico es familia.
More than 43 cities in the United States—one for each student disappeared in Ayotzinapa— will join together for a call to action. We here in the United States are also tired of all the killing, tired of all the disappearances and inherently destructive drug war policies that foster these catastrophes, paid for by the U.S. government.
Let’s join together as community members, students, immigrant rights activists, religious organizations, concerned scholars, etc. in remembering that we are all Ayotzinapa, #TodosSomosAyotzinapa. Let’s all join together once more and DEMAND the return of the 43 missing students, DEMAND justice for the countless number of womxn that have been murdered particularly as an effect of neo-liberal policies, and DEMAND the United States STOP “Plan Mexico,”–that has not reduced the drug traffic it was intended to but FURTHER supports a corrupt government, as well as its policies on border militarization.

WE WILL BE RALLYING DECEMBER 3, 2014 AT:
EVERETT M. DIRKSEN U.S. COURTHOUSE
At 3:30 P.M.
We ask the support of community members in remembering the clear connection between state-sponsored violence in Mexico and state sponsored violence in the U.S. We must be in solidarity with the community in Ferguson, as our struggles are deeply interconnected.
