Ayotzinapa

  1. 1. Drugs gangs or the Mexican State? Two sides of the same coin
  2. 2. Some known facts ● The student Julio César Mondragón was murdered, he appeared scarified, their eyes were taken, a sign of the drug cartels ● 43 students kidnapped by local police ● 28 cadavers in 11 clandestine caves – Oficially they are not the “desappearing” students ● Who they are?, they still are murdered, leaved in clandestine caves, they are humans ● victims of who?
  3. 3. Context ● The fake “war” against the drug cartels – The war is focused in the displacement of some cartels, an arrangement of places and power – This triggered an increasing spiral of extreme violence (Kaibiles and Maras were included) – The financial power of the drug cartels was not touched – Drug cartels control the goverment, the police, the army, the magistrates, the media... ● Aug 2014: 22,322 “desappeared”. 9,790 in the current narco-government
  4. 4. Context ● The normality established is based on: – Total control and the use of the “legitime” and ilegitime forces to support their criminal actions ● The chief of the municipality José Luis Abarca was delivering USD 22,000 monthly to the drug gang Guerreros Unidos – A frightened society, not informed, immobilized – Simulation of a “peaceful” society and the freedom from punishment of their accomplices – Full and bloody repression to their opponents
  5. 5. Context ● Before the fake anti-narco war, the goverment has been applying the low intencity war – Counterinsurgency strategy from USA adapted to the Mexican (and Latinamerican) context, particularly to confront the EZLN raising – Forced dessapearing is a central element against people ● Easy, quiet, not expensive ● Keep the society in a state of uncertainty, and spreads the scare ● Open the door to the raise of violence and crime – The goverment claim the social peace when in fact promoting the civil war

  8. 8. Ayotzinapa ● Stigmatization of Ayotzi: a hotbed for guerrilla ● The students has been murdered, desappeared and injured without any consequence ● 12 Dic 2013: 3 students murdered during a domostration in a highway ● Modus operandi of the government: – Attempts to close their schools – Strong disdain, discredit campaign in media and society – Criminalize the protest, bloddy repressive actions
  9. 9. 43 of Ayotzinapa ● The students arrived to Iguala for taking buses, not to make any demonstration in this city ● The wife of the municipality governor Ma. de los Ángeles Pineda order the attack to the students ● They are attacked by the local police and they are delivered to the drug gang GU ● They are treated as a oppositor drug cartel, attacked with the same actions, the same cruelty ● Step by step the narco-government is behavioring as an omnipotent entity out/over the law, no matter wat it does, they only simulate the normality.
