Caravan for peace

Javier Sicilia is a mexican poet whose son was killed during a shooting involving rival groups of drug dealers. He was an innocent bystander. After that, he started a movement called "Movimiento por la Paz y la Justicia" (Movement for Peace and Justice) to bring attention to the consequences of the Mexican government war against the drug cartels. Diego got involved with the movement since its beginning and today in Los Angeles they started a caravan that will end in Washington, DC and whose purpose is to draw the attention of both american government and society for what is happening in Mexico.

Here are some pictures of Diego alongside other mexican celebrities, such as Alfonso Cuarón, Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro González Iñarritu at today's event:
