STOP the Mexican Drug Violence

Will this be enough?

Will this get the Government of Mexico to really crack down including weeding out the corruption brought by the drug cartels?

I doubt it but I hope its a great start.

Thousands march against violence in Mexico City

MEXICO CITY (AP) — An anti-violence march that began in a central state with a few hundred people and gathered thousands over a four-day trek reached Mexico's capital Sunday, led by a poet whose son was killed by suspected drug traffickers.

People poured into the main Zocalo square in Mexico City, wearing white T-shirts saying "enough bloodshed" and carrying photos of poet Javier Sicilia's slain son.

A few hundred people set off from Cuernavaca in the central state of Morelos on Thursday, marching silently along the 50-mile (80-kilometer) route. Turnout estimates varied widely, but the crowd took up less than half of the main square, which is believed to hold about 100,000 people. It was packed with more than 100,000 in 2008 during another march for peace and justice.
