Estemos Unidos Mexico is a national non-violent, anti-crime citizen’s movement that advocates social unity and participation against the violence and terror generated by organized criminal groups. One way that EUM raises awareness is by using the same tactic favored by criminals: the use of banners in public locations to communicate messages.
Recently the group also unveiled plans to promote “Comités de Vigilancia Ciudadana”, a neighborhood watch program. The program will begin in Mexico City where authorities have pledged their support, and have stopped the practice of taking down EUM banners from public areas immidiately after they are hung.
On Tuesday evening, December 7th, EUM supporters belonging to a group known as Alianza Eco placed two banners over a heavily traveled road in Culiacan, the capitol city of Sinaloa, one of Mexico’s most violent states.
Municipal police and state investigative authorities arrived on the scene and after confering on site, and perhaps in a gesture of support and solidarity with the people of Culiacan, left the scene with the banners intact and in place for the citizens to observe.

CULIACÁN IS THE PEOPLE’S TERRITORY!
A group of our supporters, on Tuesday placed a banner on the Puente Negro Bridge in the city of Culiacan, Sinaloa. The bravery of Culiacan’s civil society is beyond doubt.
The determination and courage of this group of citizens is a great example for Mexicans around the country.
Mexico awaken! Join the movement and help us summon more people, so that together we can protect our families.
Send chain e-mails, hang banners, distribute flyers, talk to your neighbors. Nothing can stop us.
Mexico unite! This is our country and we are taking it back.
