Conversation with Mexican poet Javier Sicilia about his efforts to raise awareness about the human toll of the war on drugs. “We are outraged because the war has done nothing for us – it has not solved the problem,” Sicilia says. “We need to create awareness and consciousness so American people know that behind every drug consumer and behind every use of guns, we pay with dead people.” — the exact same thing can be said about the war on terror. other countries pay with dead people. 30,000 killed in pakistan since 2001.
