World Affairs Lecture “El Narco: Inside Mexico’s Criminal Insurg
Salt Lake City
Jan 15 - Jan 15
Westminster College and the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy present a lecture by journalist Ioan Grillo entitled, “El Narco: Inside Mexico’s Criminal Insurgency” on Jan. 15, 2013, at 7 p.m. in the Vieve Gore Concert Hall.
El Narco is not a gang; it is a movement and an industry drawing in hundreds of thousands from bullet-ridden barrios to marijuana-growing mountains. And, it has created paramilitary death squads with tens of thousands of men at arms from Guatemala to the Texas border. Drawing on his decade inside Mexico, Grillo goes beyond the abstract, shapeless statistics of drug tonnage and dollar values with countless zeros, and sheds light on the often shadowy power that has torn our nearest neighbor apart in its first decade as a true democracy.
