Time to Sign Up for the Peace Caravan

23rd July, 2012 - Posted by Ted Lewis - 4 Comments

In less than three weeks, the Mexican led Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity will begin its trek across the United States and we’re asking you to join us.

Starting August 12 in San Diego, the caravan will travel through 25 cities before arriving in Washington, DC on Sept 10 raising and joining the voices of victims of drug war victims from both North and South.

The caravan, made up of buses, cars, RVs, and campers welcomes the participation of all those who have had enough of drug war violence, gun smuggling, mass incarceration, money laundering, and the many other ills arising from more than forty years of a senseless war.

Javier Sicilia and dozens of other Mexican mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers who have lost loved ones to this maelstrom ask you to join the caravan.

Become part of this historic cross-border partnership. Join us for a few miles, a few days, all the way across the USA.

Space is limited on the bus, so you are encouraged to register as soon as possible. Once the bus is filled, there will also be an opportunity for people to follow the bus in private cars and carpools.

If you live along the route, join a local host committee.

If you can’t go on the road with us you can support Global Exchange to make the Caravan a success. Your generous donation will go a long way towards guaranteeing the success of the Caravan.

We hope to see you on the road with us in August and September.

For those in the Bay Area, School of Americas Watch, Fellowship of Reconciliation, and Breaking the Chains will hold a send-off event for the East Bay feeder caravan on Friday, August 10 at 6pm at Fruitvale Avenida, Oakland (34th & International).
