Autodefensas in 11 States

Posted on

December 22, 2013

The national human rights Commission reported that self-defense groups are located in 11 States, among which stand out are the Michoacán, Guerrero, Oaxaca and the State of Mexico.

Though this video is in Spanish, it has many  charts and photos of autodefensas that English language speakers can follow. Charts depicting the states in which they are located, and the municipalities under self control in Michoacán. Self policing groups are legal and protected under the constitution.  They have successfully policing for over a hundred years. In the municipalities where self policing has been initiated and established, crime has dropped 90% and has stabilized for decades. Let’s hope that the newly formed groups will achieve the same success.
