México’s current humanitarian crisis has been exacerbated by almost a decade of ineffective anti-cartel and US-México security policies, which have resulted in unprecedented murder rates and remade power relations among political elite, drug cartels, and local communities. Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad was borne out of the frustration and outrage of the Mexican people to the escalation of violence that was the direct result of President Felipe Calderón’s disastrous war on drug trafficking. Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad. Tres años is a journey through the history of the Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity. The original art instillation was curated by Linda Atach, director of the Department of the Temporary Exhibitions at the Museum of Memory and Tolerance, in Mexico City.
