Thousands of Mexicans have gathered for a 900-mile march to protest against the drug cartels and the violence that has gripped the country. Their caravan started last weekend in Cuernavaca, a resort and industrial city south of Mexico City. Mexican poet Javier Sicilia–whose son was killed by members of the Mexican drug cartel two months ago–is leading the march. It will conclude when the marchers cross the border from Ciadad-Juarez into El Paso, Texas. Irene Caselli, who has been reporting from Mexico for our partner the BBC, speaks with us on the final day of the march.
