An in-depth documentary on U.S. arms transfers to Mexico in a context of deepened corruption and human rights violations. The so-called Drug War serves make legal the killing and repression of people: the United States provides the weapons, while Mexico provides the people killed and disappeared, including in Ayotzinapa. This documentary brings together the testimonies of human rights activists, journalists, and people in Mexico directly affected by the violence carried by both government forces and organized crime in Mexico, with U.S. support.

Discussion to follow the 26 min. film; Daniela Rivero (IC ’21) and Prof. Ute Ritz-Deutch (SUNY-Cortland; TC3; Amnesty International- Local Group 73) will lead discussion about Human Rights and arms transfers to Mexico.
