Peace and Justice without Borders

Peace and Justice without Borders

The unfunded, low-budget grassroots effort, organized by ordinary citizens who call themselves “Peace and Justice without Borders” (Paz y Justicia sin Fronteras), was publicized simply by word of mouth and social media. But hundreds gathered nevertheless on both sides of the border.

The U.S. / Mexico Borderland has its own absolutely incomparable culture. It has a unique burgeoning language, its own rhythm and style and a shared outcry for justice, peace and hope.

Our friend Billie continues to be  a strong voice for our family in the Borderland. This past Saturday, January 29th, two nations met at a multi-billion dollar border fence which segregates theses sister cities, joining forces to cry out for peace and justice. The images are compelling: brothers and sisters uniting together despite the ironic fence dissevering them.

Please stop by Billie’s blog to read her story and see more images of the rally.

    The picture at the end of the video spoke volumes to me. I had to go back and look at it again. Brothers and sisters from two cultures, two countries touching hands through a fence. That says more than I can put into words.
