Fleeing the black hole called Tamaulipas

Translated by El Profe for Borderland Beat from Horizontal

I survived three kidnappings and one week of torture. Forty companions and acquaintances disappeared. The State and Los Zetas threatened me. I fled from my house, but they will not shut me up. I am a journalist who defends those who have been silenced for reporting.

                         Run away from hell The Truth · Illustration @donmarcial

by Gildo Garza

After surviving three "levantones" of Los Zetas and endured a week of unimaginable tortures, I could not write anymore.
After thinking for hours that they were going to kill me - to "see the devil's eyes" as they say in Tamaulipas - or after observing my companion's broken body, I could have kept quiet.
When between 2000 and 2013 more than 40 comrades and acquaintances disappeared and others were murdered and the state humiliated them by planting drugs and cardboard with messages from the narco at the crime scene to accuse them, I could have surrendered.
After all this, I ran away from my house.
But from the day I arrived at that workshop at the newspaper La Voz de Tamaulipas, of the late José Luis Contreras, and put a bucket, solution, and a printing plate in my hands, I knew that I had been caught by journalism. I felt the obligation to educate and document the history of Tamaulipas. That's why I'm still recounting.
