Report Back: Unique Trip To Chihuahua, Mexico

February 27, 2011 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Report Back: Unique Trip To Chihuahua, Mexico

Chihuahua, MexicoPuppet Underground will give a report back from their trip to Chihuahua, Mexico this past December, where they partnered with several community groups doing music and puppetry workshops. The trip culminated in a Fandango on the border between Ciudad Juarez and El Paso, TX on December 11th. Throughout the trip they got to work with amazing community groups, share skills, learn more about the situation on the border, and become inspired by the struggle to make the communities safer and more just. The report back will include photos and a video about the trip, screened for the first time at this event.

In addition to the report-back from the Fandango Fronterizo, there will be a panel discussion about increasing militarization and violence on the border and the role of U.S. policies in contributing to this increase. The featured panelist will be Catalina Nieto and Sanho Tree.

  • Sanho Tree is a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies. He is the director of the Drug Policy Project, which works to end the domestic and international “War on Drugs” and replace it with policies that promote public health and safety, as well as economic alternatives to the prohibition drug economy.
  • Catalina Nieto is a National Grassroots Organizer for Witness for Peace. She works for just and fair U.S. policies toward Latin America by helping lead campaigns to foster education, grassroots advocacy and media exposure on issues of trade, migration and military aid.
