The Mexican Army: "Watching them Die"

"Guerrero is Mexico's Middle East"

The Role of the Army of the Iguala Massacre


by C.E.M.

A Borderland Beat follower gave us a heads up about this documentary(Watching them Die) available on Netflix.  It is also available on other media, just Google to research availability.  This is a must see film.

The documentary was released almost a year ago, and I for one did not hear about it until now.  I did find an interview of the filmmakers, which includes outtakes from the film.  It is posted above. It is about a half hour long, it is filled with information. The documentary  is exceptionally well done and fact based, unlike most of the others that have been released.   It is the most informative documentary I have seen on the subject.  It is filled with real time footage, and facts.  It explains the origin of the poppy in the area and how Iguala factors into it as the most important shipping point.  The documentary sheds light about the Abarcas. The former first lady and mayor of Iguala and the murder the former mayor is now charged with, that of activist Arturo Hernández Cardona.  Also explained is how the people begged the federal government for help long before 2014, and they were sent home saying, “it is a local matter”.  They were advised to return and file a complaint with the very people who were in collusion with organized crime. The film describes the long standing participation of federal and state forces with organized crime. Viewers will see outstanding footage of the “Night of Iguala”.  With real time footage, narrative from normalistas who escaped unharmed, and graphics used to give a complete visual of the night of horror.

Why Iguala?
In 2011 the poppy replaced marijuana as the most important illegal crop in Mexico.  The poppy region of Guerrero produces 42% of all opiates produced in Mexico.  This region in Guerrero is to the west of Iguala, with Iguala being the concentration point for this product, an ideal formulation point to collect the drug and ship.


The government has ignored the region and issues evolving from the drug trade.  They have left organized groups alone to battle it among themselves.  This has left citizenry vulnerable to criminality and helpless to protect themselves against it.  People say since 2011, you cannot find a family that does not have a family member that has gone missing.

The horror of Iguala did not begin with the 43
The horror did not begin on the night of September 26, 2014.  The search for the 43 normalistas (student teachers) shed light on an existing reality.

Because there were not 43 people missing from the city, but hundreds.  The hills of Iguala are an immense area, which has turned into a massive clandestine cemetery. The group “The Others Missing”, has registered more than 350 missing people, not counting the 43. (2012-2014) The true number of missing is estimated to be in the thousands.

Two out of every three missing cases in Guerrero, are found in Iguala and its surrounding area.

    1. It took a while, I wanted to see the film first. I was stunned by the information given. It takes us back to the 70s and the military/police Blood squads, who tortured and killed citizens and progressed from that point. this gives a complete picture of why...who...what has transpired in Gro. This is an amazing film. Thank YOU for sending it in.

  3. Punk ass Mexican military! Chapos kids ambushed them in Sinaloa and they don't do shit! Before anyone goes around saying that it was probably BLO that made the ambush, first of all it was said that it was around 50 heavily armed men that ambushed the Army. Second BLO where said to have been beaten out of Sinaloa in the first place starting from Bariguato to Culiacan. So how is it possible that BLO could have around 50 armed men in Culiacan to begin with in the first place to ambush the military?. So it was most likely Chapos kids and CDS.
    My point however aside from the events in Sinaloa is that this Mexican government has the balls to confront unarmed protestors yet does shit when it comes to heavily armed men!

    2. BLO has not been beaten out of Badiraguato much less Culiacan , You can see convoys of trucks patrolling in Culiacan with armed men all over the city with ak47 caliber 50s with the letter B on the sides of the trucks . Also if Guano got shot then that means they are still fighting for those towns in Badiraguato as well .

    5. @WS44 I, live on the border of the U.S. and Mexico and travel to Mexico frequently. This means that anything that happens within Mexico as far as cartels can have some impact on me and my family personally. I, also hear and even pic up on some narco shit indirectly living so close to Mexico. Novelas are not real life. What about the Novelas you guys make in the interior of the U.S? Like is Tony Romo and his Cowboys going to the fucken super bowl this year? Or is Kapernick going to stand up during the national anthem? Who gives a fuck?
      If you don't like shit posted here don't fuckin read this fucking blog!

      It's like word of mouth news.

    1. 7:57 That was about 200 years ago, before the mineras discovered they could mine mexico and ruin the environment forever with their cianuros and mining practices banned on their own countries, and all it took was some kickbacks to mexican governing narco-mierdocracia in power because they paid to make it so, there is no gold on the damn flag, but it masks mexico's enemies now, both are full of shit...

    1. In one of the opening pages of Netflix where it gives you the option to watch movies or TV series it also gives the option to watch "Documentaries". Click on that and you will find it.

    5. If you don;t have NETFLIX you can access it from other Download now websites.

      Or sign up for Netflix free for a month. I did that to watch Narcos, but decided to stay with Netflix. I just checked and they still have Free Month offer.
