In recent days, Mexico and Mazatlán have been shaken by the death of Giovanni López due to the excessive use of force by elements of the Police in Jalisco, who was detained for not using a face mask on the street, meanwhile the world was reacting with public demonstrations to George Floyd’s death under similar circumstances.
Like you, we believe that music and the arts are a means to dialogue with other people through our differences, identifying our similarities and respecting what makes us unique.
We reject any type of violence, but above all, the one that is executed by the corporations and government institutions that are supposed to protect its citizens.
