Drug War Mexico, NAFTA, and Why People Leave

February 9, 2013

This interview is re-posted from Dissident Voice.9781848138865

In this interview with the Real News Network, Peter Watt, author of Drug War Mexico, talks about how US policy and neoliberal ‘reforms’ helped create conditions for the growth of drug cartels and the impoverishment of millions.

Watt also talks about the nearly twenty years of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and how millions of peasants have lost their land and have little alternative than to come to the US, often undocumented.

The content of this interview is important, particularly now as the US government is debating new immigration policy.
