Mexico’s Peace Caravan leads to new university

    Narco News TV has just released this new video, which documents one of the tangible successes that came out of the Caravan of Solace—the more than 1,000-mile, week-long march against the Mexico’s drug war that was led by poet Javier Sicilia earlier this summer.

    After Sicilia and the other marchers stopped in the town of Topilejo and spoke out for the need for access to higher education to keep young people out of the drug trade, the townspeople organized their community and worked to build a university called the Tlalpan Technical Institute, which was just opened this week.
