La Bestia


La Bestia




While the “Wall” between Mexico and the USA is becoming one the loudest issues discussed on both sides of the boarder, I wanna offer a glimpse into the journey of those, who are throwing their lives, their dignity and their identities in the pursuit of a new life, having hope as the only pledge of success.

As many as half a million undocumented Central American immigrants annually hop aboard freight trains known as “La Bestia,” or the beast, on their exodus trip through Mexico to the USA.

If you are not listed anywhere – you are hidden from the view. Half million undocumented individuals a year create open and easy market for illegal lucrative businesses run by organised crime groups.

According to unofficial statistics, seventy thousands of them are gone missing every year on the way to the land that nobody have promised them.
