Mexican Drum Circle To End Drug War

The latest plan is to fill my 1969 Econoline Van with bongo and conga drums and make one last excursion into the heart of the Mexican drug war to lead the largest drum circle ever assembled. The point is to smoke pot and get laid while playing drums obviously, but the official press release will say that we want to "Make a Sound for Peace." "Sonido Para Paz" has the nicest ring to it.

The drug war is everyone's fault because the drug use in America is causing the demand for manufacturing in Mexico and since it is illegal in both places the only checks and balances are at the end of an automatic weapon. And heroin overdose is like the number one cause of death for men under 40 in Missouri. Oh, but don't worry about it because that has nothing to do with you.

I need about 100 conga and bongo drums. I need another video camera (for the next documentary that I'll never finish) and I need a drum circle leader to drive with me to Mexico and visit every village where someone has been killed in the drug war and have a drum circle with everyone in the whole town beating conga drums for peace.
I figure if I pretend it will make a difference then that's enough.
And I need about $2000 to make this all happen. Can anyone help?
