Mireles: The Federal Government Betrayed the Autodefensas






By: Dalia Villegas Moreno | Translated by Valor for Borderland Beat 



Three years after the emergence of the autodefensa groups in Michoacán, Dr. José Mireles Valverde, an emblematic figure of the movement, said that the federal government betrayed those who carried out a “real social fight” and left them “worse”, because they disarmed them and left them in the hands of organized crime.

Through an audio recording that circulated throughout social networks, Mireles Valverde, who is imprisoned in a federal prison in Sonora since June 2014, accused of bearing arms that are not allowed, said that “there is nothing to celebrate” during the third anniversary of the autodefensa movement.

In any case, Mireles Valverde said that what should be celebrated is the dignity and the courage of the population of Tierra Caliente who faced organized crime with their limited resources.  “Unfortunately, the awakening was very painful, but in the moment when we faced our fears, we realized our greatness”.

He recounted when on one occasion, “those murderers,” which he says: were killing his people, “tying their hands and feet,” that a young 14 year old faced them with a shotgun; “he made them run, and there were six trucks filled with them armed, that’s dignity, and that is what we should be celebrating.”

Mireles Valverde said that during the 17 months that the autodefensas movement controlled the security in 36 municipalities, mainly in Tierra Caliente, the occurrence of crime reduced significantly.  “At that time, no one lost a needle,” he says.

In contrast, he said that the police and military apparatus of the Federation, of the state and the municipalities, with all the operational capacity and resources, couldn’t control both local jurisdiction crimes nor federal crimes.


In weighing the courage that the autodefensas had in order to fight against organized crime, particularly against the Caballeros Templarios, Mireles Valverde brings to mind the adage, “the coward lives as long as the brave wants him to.”

At the end of the audio-message, Mireles Valverde says: “I planned to no longer fight this year, but…no, I won’t fight anymore, I want peace in the nation,” he concludes.

    1. Mexico hasn't changed in damn near 200 years and they (government) break the spirit of those who want to change the modus operandi. Unless major changes occur within every level of Mexican government the Mexican citizens will either continue to be slaves to the narco machine or jump ship to another country. Mind you I love everything Mexican without being from Mexico myself. My children are half Mexican and it truly pains me to see what is happening to the country. One day I pray that I can take them to their mothers birthplace without being fearful of violence. In the US I have the ability to do certain things to protect them but that all changes when we cross the border. I know bad things can happen any where whether in the US or any other country, but the reality is there is a different set of rules in Mexico. One day....One day

  4. So I'm guessing he never wants to be freed. He never will If he keeps spewing this anti government rhetoric.

    Plenty of auto defensas became part of the official police forces. They worked together with the state to fight the crime in their own backyard in an officially sanctioned, state-supported rural police forces.

    Mireles was and still Is a pendejo who was waging a war with the State as well as the criminal groups. He wanted nothing to do with federal forces and so he was arrested. For good reason: he was waging a war directly with the criminal gangs but he was preaching to the auto defensas to openly defy their Mexican government.

    1. "He wanted nothing to do with federal forces and so he was arrested. For good reason: he was waging a war directly with the criminal gangs but he was preaching to the auto defensas to openly defy their Mexican government."

      Probably because the government is corrupt as hell and rightly afraid of losing power.

    2. You sound like a Mexican government mouth piece. I guess it's not your family being robbed, raped, and killed by thugs and useless government.

    3. So you call him pendejo because he was protecting his family and his community from all the violence and corruption? I think next time you want to call any body pendejo make sure your looking in the mirror

    4. Ever think maybe he is fighting the Mexican government as well because the government is corrupt and working with the cartels?

    5. Well of course you fucking pendeja the federal forces were on ct side. Why join forces with the law if the law would of have a lot of ad set up. He didn't want to risk his people lives. Why you mad because them bitch made ct got taken out. Them putos were an embarrassment to michoacan.

    6. 9.21
      The whole state of Michoacan was being terrorized for years,kidnappings,rapes,murders of innocent people,every day,Mireles himself had relatives killed i believe.
      And guess what?He and people got fed up with it,cause "their Mexican government " did absolutely nothing about it.So he let his balls hang(unlike you)and ended up dismantling one of the biggest cartels(good that isnt it)and when the ADs seemed to be spreading to other parts of Mexico(guess what)he got arrested carrying a gun.
      So unlike you,he actually tried to make a difference,but,somewhat inevitably the Mexican gov stepped up and entombed him.Callate pendejo no sabes lo que dices hablas puras pendejadas.Now,go back to your planet and tell fuckin Clatu and Nictu what a bellend you are "defy their Mexican gov" fuckin classic

    9. 9:21 Dr Mireles and the AD never once fought the government, not the army, or the navy, not the state police or government, and not even the municipal police or government, and said their fight was not against them, but against the Kabelleras kagadas, so, unless you are implying that the Kabelleras kagadas were the government, then you are full of SHIT! eureka!!!
      --the autodefensas chosen to be juersaz rurales, we're chosen by la Sexoterapista Cubana de alfredo Castillo's de cagada, from the worst of the worst the AD had to offer, the "redeemed ct" that turned out to have been unredeemed after all, while the new plaza boss giniral burrolas continued with the "murder in the night in the dark" campaign for the hearts and minds of the people, (like you, o sea, los pendejos) and los Conejos like the "new perredista" governor, Conejo...
      --Mireles was arrested after being stopped to prevent him and his followers from helping el Gordo Valencia and his wife and children who were being murdered with guns and knives, like pigs by the juersaz rurales as retaliation for having quit their association, el Gordo and his family were squealing like a stuck pig asking for help over the radio, Dr Mireles did not fight the soldiers that prevented him and his followers from helping...

    11. ..."criminal gangs but he (Mireles) was preaching to the auto defensas to openly defy their Mexican government".... ...this is from a PRI shill.... had the "Mexican Government" done it's job and provided enough resources to protect the communities that Mireles represented, there would have been no reason for Mireles to become an activist. Instead they do little or nothing. Criminal extortion is rampant, kidnappings (then usually murdered) and almost always without any fear of retribution or prosecution. The local police are no help, more often than not, they work with the criminal gangs, so they are part of the problem, not the solution. The Iguala Tragedy.. There the local marinas/military sat on their god-damned asses while students were wantonly killed by gunfire, many abducted then later killed. Why did they not intervene? And more importantly, who told them not to? Someone should answer for that... but what do we have is federal government obfuscation of the facts, obstructing the investigation... nothing but lies and dishonesty from many 'higher up politicos' who don't want the truth to be known.

  16. Dr. Mireles in his leadership and the autodefenses movement he inspires, as it turned out, indirectly became a threat to the authority of both the State and central governments. Dr. Mireles is essentially a political prisoner, and the intent of his imprisonment is to keep him out of circulation for as long as possible. Every tin-pot dictatorship, in Mexico thinly veiled as a democratic institution, sadly in name only, creates a plethora of laws and regulations designed to keep the populace in line the status-quo. And in Mexico that status-quo is rampant corruption, institutionalized graft, and criminality at every possible turn. The central government feared that Dr. Mireles movement while essentially sincere in fighting crime in their communities' might eventually evolve into a sort of 'orange revolution'. Better to have narco-crime than threaten the political elites existence and authority...

  20. The autodefensas are a real threat to the mother of all cartels in Mexico: the federal government! Why? Because the autodefensas are a real threat to corruption and corruption is what feeds the politicians, the military, the judges, the police commanders and the bureaucrats with their monopoly on power.

  21. Autodefensas need to reorganize and infiltrate the local police of their town and cities until they outnumber the corrupt officers. Once that occurs, start cleaning house. Begin to kill them off all at once if possible and fill the positions with more Autodefensas or like minded people. Their approach was too straight forward, and they made themselves vulnerable to the enemy, who disguised himself as being for the people...
