The HCLU’s video advocacy team travelled to Mexico to film the negative consequences of the war on drugs campaign that has been launched by President Felipe Calderon in 2006.
When they first entered the country the number of people killed in the war approached 40.000. Today, the death toll is approximately 60.000. With the help of a like-minded local NGO, Espolea, they interviewed several politicians, professionals and activists to find out why so many people had to die: were they the necessary costs of an unescapable but winnebale war, as many decision makers say, or the victims of a failed policy?
