In the era of mass deportations, over incarceration and a humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied minors at our southern border, we the women of A Trail for Humanity will journey over 300 miles on foot for our children and our families. We will walk from the San Francisco Bay to the U.S. Mexico Border with dignity, with our children and with humanity. A Trail for Humanity is inspired by the wisdom in the Mayan proverb - In Lak’ Ech Ala K’in - that we are all a reflection of one another. As mothers, we can no longer tolerate the terrorizing of women and children. Reuniting with one's family has become a felony, children are being ripped from the protective arms of parents, migrants are being fed to the Sonora desert sands and refugee children are being kept in torturous conditions. This march brings these realities to the forefront. We are taking a stand against the violence targeting migrant women and children. Join us in solidarity as we take a stand for humanity. "We invite all mothers and their children to join and lead the pilgrimage."

In a national speech addressing the current state of tribal nations, Jefferson Keel President of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), outlined in the State of Indian Nations Address, a course for securing tribal communities, nations, and the future prosperity of both tribes and America. In remarks delivered to members of Congress, tribal leaders and citizens, and government officials broadcast nationally via a live web cast and radio, Keel covered a range of critical topics central to both tribal nations and federal, state and local government. In his remarks Keel called for increased efforts to work together to address violence against women, the federal budget sequestration, immigration, land and energy issues, and economic development. The Congressional Response was delivered by Washington Senator Maria Cantwell, who was recently appointed the new Chairwoman for the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs and represents 29 tribes and almost 165,000 Native people. The State of Indian Nations comes just two days after President Obama delivered the State of the Union and two days after the Senate overwhelmingly passed the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) with key tribal provisions to protect Native women. In the major address Keel specifically called on the House to pass a comprehensive bill and send the legislation to the President's desk immediately.

Douglas, Ariz., with a population or approximately 20,000, shares a common border with Agua Prieta, a city with about 70,000 inhabitants in Sonora, Mexico. Douglas Police Chief Alberto Melis describes how the border city of Douglas has been affected by more than a decade of heightened border security, and the ensuing human and drug smuggling that tighter overall border security has produced in and around Douglas. In "The Border Is Not Black and White" Chief Melis says that local ranchers and farmers have historically employed workers from Mexico, and that the communities of Douglas and Agua Prieta traditionally experienced strong ties and routine crossover of residents, who often have relatives on the other side of the border. But with efforts to seal the most popular border crossing areas in the last decade, rural locals have experienced many more "undocumented aliens" ("UDAs") crossing their lands. So what was once a clear-cut neighborly relationship has become a more difficult situation to understand, as formerly routine encounters now have a potential to become deadly.

(C) LA DISCO MUSIC http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/el-movimiento-alterado/id424121158 - El Movimiento Alterado is a type of hardcore narco corridos which worships the lifestyle and violent actions of organized crime, through various expressions. Its main propaganda vehicle are called "corridos enfermos," which are a kind of evolution of narcocorridos. It is a well-organized industry which makes millions of dollar annually. Their albums are available via the internet or in the same places where artists are giving concerts. If you do a search on YouTube will find a wide repertoire of music videos where armed criminals are accompanied by voluptuous women, luxury SUVs, executions, mansions, jewelry and violence which has built the stereotype of successful offender. This movement, presumably promoted and financed by organized crime, constitutes an invitation to young people to join the workforce of crime and thus have access to a life of pleasure, violence and domination versus the miserable existence of most of the people poor. Needless to say, none of these videos shows the evil that awaits them. No one set out how it end up in prison, executed or tortured. The videos exalt violence, waste, and the pleasures that alleged criminals or actually live. Sangre de maldito, Carteles Unidos, Sanguinarios del M1, Volando Cabezas are only a few titles which are promoting the movement, reaching several million views on popular video websites.

It is divided into 72 municipalities; the capital city is Hermosillo. Sonora is bordered by the states of Chihuahua to the east, Baja California to the northwest and Sinaloa to the south. To the north, it shares the U.S.–Mexico border with the states of Arizona and New Mexico, and on the west has a significant share of the coastline of the Gulf of California. Sonora's natural geography is divided into three parts: the Sierra Madre Occidental in the east of the state; plains and rolling hills in the center; and the coast on the Gulf of California. It is primarily arid or semiarid deserts and grasslands, with only the highest elevations having sufficient rainfall to support other types of vegetation. Sonora is home to eight indigenous peoples, including the Mayo, the Yaqui, and Seri. It has been economically important for its agriculture, livestock (especially beef), and mining since the colonial period, and for its status as a border state since the Mexican–American War. With the Gadsden Purchase, Sonora lost more than a quarter of its territory. From the 20th century to the present, industry, tourism, and agribusiness have dominated the economy, attracting migration from other parts of Mexico.
