The Victims Shall Not be Forgotten

Every night this week, a street in central El Paso will light up with the
names of more than 10,000 people killed in the violence that’s ravaged
Ciudad Juarez and Mexico since 2008. Sponsored by Annunciation House, the
nightly projection/vigil is part of a week-long series of activities that
will culminate with a dinner honoring in person the Mexican poet and
anti-violence activist Javier Sicilia on Saturday, April 28. A shelter for
migrants and the homeless, Annunciation House, has named Sicilia the
recipient of its 2012 Voice of the Voiceless award.

To call attention to the loss of human life in the so-called narco war,
Annunciation House will project the names of murdered people on one side of
the organization’s building on East San Antonio Avenue while simultaneously
flashing large photos on another side of the red-brick structure.
Accompanied by music, the stunning images show grieving families, funerals
galore, freshly-killed victims laying in the street, masked soldiers in the
streets and outraged citizens protesting in public.
