Drug War 40

The global war as seen from the center of North America

Drug War discussion at NMSU

With nearly 5,000 murders occurring since 2008 in our sister city of
Ciudad Juárez, an immediate bi-national response is necessary. In
2010 alone, 563 people have been killed and no end is in sight.
Kidnapping and extortion has skyrocketed. This forum seeks to address
this ongoing violence.

It will bring together colleagues from the
Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez, Juárez activists, and Juarez
citizens to educate the NMSU community about their work, advocacy, and
experiences living in what is described as “the most violent city in
the World.” Ultimately, we intend for the forum to produce productive
dialogues across the border, and between communities that have been
shattered by this violence.
