"Rastro-concerns" (Ethics and prison) with April Schmucler

"Inside the prison human differences are marked, those that are also outside, but that are disguised as morals -or desires of invisible moralities-.

What is punishment, what is guilt, what is responsibility? Prison, jail, is one of the many ways of making the other invisible, to the other, who broke social norms. The reason ceased to matter to us, we just need to stop seeing them and thinking about them. We need to start thinking that we are also responsible for their confinement.

"Stories of crime are stories of abandonment"

Global UNAM


The easy way out from the desk is to legislate, be tougher, more years in prison, death penalty


The common denominator in the crime stories that the teacher Claudia Alarcón knows is abandonment: “If we reduced it to a single word, it would be abandonment. The central point of many of the problems. The abandonment of the father, of the mother, of society, the abandonment of couples. Knowing that one is not the subject of concern, interest, or attention from others” (...)
