Cops and Campuses Against Cartels

Last year over 50 SSDP chapters participated in our national day of action on Cinco de Mayo by drawing attention to the drug war violence occurring in Mexico. We protested the fact that in just over one year, more than 7,500 people had been killed in Mexico. Needless to say, prohibition hasn't gone away and today, more than 18,000 people have been murdered in Mexico.

So SSDP will be organizing a 2010 Day of Action and we hope that even more SSDP chapters will participate and our voices will be louder than last year. Go to for more information.

SSDP chapters will be drawing attention to this issue by doing things like:

  • Demonstrating on campus with Mexican flags or balloons
  • Hosting a speaker from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
  • Handing out informational flyers
  • Collecting petition signatures at   
Excited? Get started!
