Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am writing about the "CARAVANA 43" tour beginning this week in Los Angeles tomorrow March 19-22.

As you may or not be aware, a very important caravan is making its way up the "Pacific Region". It is called the Caravana 43 - there will be a mother and father of two of the missing students that were disappeared last September in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, MexicoThere will also be 2 students from Ayotzinapa and a professor on this speaking tour. 

Attached are the fliers for the four days, Thursday-Sunday of events.
The events, actions, etc. in LA are being called on under the banner of "Caravana 43 Los Angeles/Inland Empire" which is essentially a coalition of several community based organizations. 
Two important public events happening this weekend are:  this SATURDAY 3/21: 5pm-7:00pm at UTLA in the Auditorium, with a March following on Sunday from Placita Olvera at 12:30pm.  

Please come and invite friends and family!!   This is an invaluable opportunity to learn about what is going on with the movement of the 43 disappeared students, directly from those that have lost a loved one and were part of this struggle. 

These missing students were student-teacher activists, fighting against the privatization of public schools, and right now, the repression, brutality and atrocities are serious, and they need our help! 

Join us this weekend let's put the pressure on the Mexican Government and the United States government who supports the corruption in Mexico and finances the so-called "War on Drugs," pushed for the "Plan Merida" and now the Plan Pueblo-Panama, the Transpacific Partnership, etc. & so on, because this is a key reason for this tour, please see the attached fliers and help spread the word!!
