In-depth analysis: The movement for 43 missing students
How U.S. trade policy created Mexico’s drug economy
Featuring guest speaker
Gloria La Riva, long-time leader in the ANSWER Coalition
Mexico has been in a profound economic crisis for years now, with the U.S.-imposed free trade agreement (NAFTA, 1994) wiping out much of the country’s national economy. Drug cartels have filled much of the void, growing enormously and creating terror in many regions of Mexico. Added to this is the huge market for drug consumption in the United States and the multi-billion-dollar money laundering by major U.S. banks of the drug profits.
On Sept. 26, police and officials in the southern Mexican town of Ayotzinapa colluded with a notorious drug gang in the disappearance and probable massacre of 43 students. This has prompted weeks of continuous national and international demonstrations aimed at uprooting the intollerable crisis in Mexico.
Join the PSL for a forum and discussion about the escalating struggle for justice in Mexico.
