Resisting Disappearance in Ciudad
Juarez, Mexico: Words, Performance, and Action
April 25, 11:40am, K-Hall
More than twenty thousand Mexicans have been "disappeared" in
violence of that country's drug war in the last six years. Who are
those people who have disappeared, and what is our connection to
them? In February, artist-activist Violeta Luna, activist-trainer
Ariel Vegosen, and writer-organizer John Lindsay-Poland visited
Ciudad Juárez in northern Mexico, which has been called "the
epicenter of pain," but is also a node of creative and courageous
activism. Through performance, verbal presentation of what they
learned, and discussion, they will address the human dimension of
the drug war in Mexico that is promoted by the United States, and
what we all can do to respond.
