"Javier Sicilia, leader of Mexico's growing movement to stop the drug war, called on the U.S. government to change its strategy and criticized the U.S. Merida Initiative as 'an initiative that only has imagination for violence and war.' Sicilia's statements are the first directly focused on the role of the U.S. government in the drug war, with the exception of a mention in his speech in the Zocalo May 8th. The following is an interview we did during a pit stop of the Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity on June 5." (06/09/11)
