I was motivated to attend [the protests in Merced] in support of the 43 missing normalista students when I heard an announcement at my church urging the congregation to attend. Twenty years ago, I too was a normalista....

Jesus Murillo Karam’s words ....

How NAFTA unleashed violence in México
The Mexican countryside is not the same twenty years after the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Rural México is on fire, and not just because of the “bad guys”–the drug cartels and groups of hit men and thugs. Criminal violence is not the only kind of violence, nor is it the factor th....
