Día de los Muertos Border Photoblog

The altar we built to honor the victims of the human rights crisis along the U.S./Mexico border.

Just a quick reminder as to why this is important to acknowledge:

The spike occurred simultaneously with the U.S. government's decision to launch Operation Gatekeeper in Southern California. More militarization equals more death. It must end.

Santa Muerte, as depicted in a mural at the base of the border wall in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. You can see the obelisk marker above the column that may look familiar to residents along the Canadian/U.S. border - unfortunately our neighbors to the south are given extra reminders of the division of land ownership.
