SILENT MIGRANTS: car, speaker –information center

Mexico has a large concentration of poor migrants, many of whom are Afro-descendants from Central America and the Caribbean. They ask for help to continue their journey North, where they are not welcome. By broadcasting the testimonies of these migrants, which were collected through interviews, we call on people to support them.
