Drug War Capitalism

Drug War Capitalism proposes that the war on drugs is a tool for social control, and outside of the United States, it tends to create social and political conditions which are beneficial for the expansion of global capitalism.

In Mexico, Colombia, and Central America, social control linked to the war on drugs is exercised primarily through the use of terror.” 

I recently interviewed her for the Monthly Review Zine here:   

Dawn is unable to come to the U.S. for this talk, so she will by present by Skype in an informal Q&A session.  We will provide good snacks for the people physically in attendance, and copies of her book will be available for purchase. This event is co-sponsored by Sacramento Area Peace Action and Sacramento Action for Latin America.
