JAVIER SICILIA, a renowned author and poet, visits Chicago sharing his journey from writing poetry to leading a national Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity in Mexico. Shortly, after his son's death last March - victim of the drug war violence in Mexico, Sicilia stated “Poetry doesn't exist in me anymore.” His poetry is silenced but not his will to say we are “Hasta la Madre! We've had it!” This movement has given voice to the 50,000 victims of the continuing drug war in Mexico. UIC welcomes Javier Sicilia ~ Poesia en Abril welcomes Javier Sicilia.
