Resisting Disappearance in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico: Words, Performance, and Action

April 25, 11:40am, K-Hall Amphitheater


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.

Sponsored by Center for Latino Studies in the Americas (CELASA).
