Javier's son was murdered in Temixco, Morelos in 2011 by members of organized crime in Mexico. This led Sicilia to abandon poetry and lead several protests against violence in Mexico. Under the motto "Estamos hasta la madre" (“we are fed up” in english), he has become an important figure in the search for peace in his country.
