The Movement for Justice in El Barrio, New York, La Otra Campaña would like to share with everyone the great news about the release of social activists who endured unjust convictions imposed out of pure revenge by the misrule of repressive Governor Juan Sabines (PRD ) and repressive PAN President Felipe Calderon, just because they resisted and defended their land and autonomy as indigenous peoples.

They had to endure five months of unjust imprisonment.

El Grito de El Paso (The Cry of El Paso)

On Memorial Day, Albuquerque resident Michael Brown embarked on a run of more than 260-miles to the US-Mexico border.

The long-distance runner began his marathon at the spot where the bodies of 11 murdered women were found on Albuquerque’s West Mesa back in February 2009. Headed south, the US Navy veteran stopped at a grave site to honor his fallen military brethren and then visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park in Truth or Consequences, NM, a popular weekend getaway located about half-way between Albuquerque and El Paso.

In an interview with Frontera NorteSur,  Brown said that a big purpose of his nearly two-week long trip was to raise awareness of youth violence as well as the failure of the juvenile justice system to deliver “real healing” and successfully reintegrate offenders back into the community. Brown’s concerns transcended national boundaries.

The Long (and Bloody) Road to June 10

On June 10, hundreds if not thousands of people from Mexican non-governmental organizations are expected to gather in Ciudad Juarez to sign a pact that organizers say is the first step in bringing a halt to the so-called drug war and putting Mexico on a new road to peace, justice and democracy.

“Paradoxically, Ciudad Juarez, this city broken by institutional abandonment, by a neo-liberal economic policy and by the disdain of the government for decades, could be the hopeful beginning of this citizen movement that is so needed at the national level in order to provoke change, to initiate a new stage in the life of the country,” wrote Proceso columnist Jose Gil Olmos.

This situation has culminated in the events of the last days and in the Caravan of the Color of Blood, that is happening now, and whose intention is for the people of Copala, who were dispossessed and displaced because they exerted their right to autonomy, to return to their homes.
