Juarez youth for peace

Last weekend, as I mentioned, there was a 24 hour concert and festival for peace in Juarez called Juventude urbana para la paz. The bands were good, though I expected to see more people. Anything people can do to express hope in this city is all to the good. One of the things that I found impressive was the enormous wall they were given across from the monument to make street art, mostly of an anti-drug nature, but they seemed free to do anything and it would be nice to see a similar sort of spirit by officials across the river in El Paso.
