JAVIER SICILIA: Mexican journalist, poet, and activist

On March 28, 2011, Sicilia’s son, Juan Francisco, a university student, was massacred with several other students. In response to the killing of his son as well as the tens of thousands of others that have been killed in Mexico’s war on drugs, Sicilia launched a movement of peace known as El Pacto Por La Paz that expressed itself through national cara- vans that gave a public platform to victims and their families. In selecting The Protestor as its 2011 Person of the Year, Time profiled Javier Sicilia as among those international activists calling for radical change in their home countries. For his courageous witness and uncompromising commitment to be a voice for the tens of thousands affected by the violence in Mexico, Javier Sicilia will be presented with our 2012 Voice of the Voiceless Award.
