Mothers march on Mexico City against the violence

Mothersof women and men missing in Mexico embarked May 8 on a national march/caravan that will culminate in protests and meetings in the nation’s capital this week. Like last year’s caravans organized by poet Javier Sicilia and other relatives of violence victims, the mobilizations will remind Mexicans of the deep emotional wounds and unhealed psychological scars that devour families of forcibly disappeared persons.

A major turning point of The Troubles in Northern Ireland was when courageous mothers, Catholic and Protestant, marched together saying no more violence, no more killing, no more maiming.

May the same process happen in Mexico too.
