Mexican poet makes peace bid in El Paso

A well-known Mexican poet whose son was killed by drug gang members brought his call for peace to the U.S on Saturday June 11, 2011.

Javie Sicilia gathered about 1,500 followers during a weeklong peace march that ended in Ciudad Juarez, the most violent city in Mexico. He crossed into Texas on Saturday and spoke to hundreds of supporters at a park in downtown El Paso.

“The U.S. has a grave responsibility in all this, when its citizens remain silent, they are imposing war on us,” he said in a quiet voice barely amplified by a bullhorn.
