Caravan for Peace marches on Mexican consulate against drug war

On the 12th of September, hundreds of people, many of them immigrants
from Mexico, marched on the Mexican Consulate on 16th st demanding an
end to the bloody "war on drugs" that accelerated viciously when

conflict supported by the United States. Some of stories of drug cartel
violence this war has stirred up put the worst of the Iraq War to shame.

    • @xoho I say, every tool in the toolbox has it's place. I will do anything I can to help anyone weaken a common enemy.The War on Drugs is a murderous common enemy that kills thousands and ruins the lives of tens of millions.
