Narco Production and Violence Displaces Thousands in Sinaloa's Sierra

Translated by Yaqui for Borderland Beat from Riodoce By: Miriam Rodriguez of Riodoce

Violent territory control shifts thousands of families again : Interactive Map

NOTE: You MAY have to GO to the LINK to actually access the INTERACTIVE Version of the Map but we think it works now.  Get to know "our ", ie, that of Riodoce's interactive map with information about people displaced by violence in 2017 in the Municipalities of  Concordia, San Ignacio and Badiraguato in the Sierras of the State of Sinaloa just so far this year in 2017.

When you open the map you will find icons in red, which represent the inhabitants that have left their  villages and the icons in black represent the violent events that have marked the mountainous area, in chronological order.

The control of the territory for the sowing and production of drugs by criminal organizations has generated violent acts that force the villagers to flee the place and the few productive options in the area like the mining have had to stop work, admitted the Secretary General of Government, Gonzalo Gómez Flores.


From the first minute of January to the present, violent events in the mountainous area of the state have not stopped. According to the records of newspaper reports, only 26 violent events have been reported in the Concordia mountains so far this year, yet they are clashes, murders with torture and mutilations and assaults on the villages.

In a geolocation exercise, violent events have been located in the villages where they occurred and coincided with each of the communities that have suffered the exodus of their inhabitants. The same happened in San Ignacio and Badiraguato.


According to official figures reported by the Secretariat of Social Development of the Sinaloa government, in 2007 Concordia have displaced 977 settlers; in San Ignacio there are 208 displaced people and in Badiraguato 148 inhabitants of the mountain range fled.

From Concordia, the inhabitants of the towns of Chirimoyos, La Petaca, Pánuco, El Coco, La Guayanera, Potrerillos, Mesa del Carrizal, Hacienda de Urías, El Encinal, Las Charcas and Santa Lucia fled.
A Group of Families/ Friends hoping for a ride and preparing to walk out of their villages in the Sierras
Once Again
Just last Friday, September 22, 2017 in the community of Santa Lucia in Concordia, an armed group intimidated the villagers, robbed their homes and forced them to prepare food.

In an interview, the Secretary General of Government, Gonzalo Gomez Flores, admitted that violent acts and the displacement of the inhabitants are related to the control of the territory that imposes organized crime to be able to plant and produce drugs.  "They intend to have the territory free for their activities, those related to organized crime. The planting and production, mainly, is what they control  that area for , " explained Gómez Flores.

Yet Another Group of Displaced Citizens Walking out of the Sierras
Meanwhile, Economic Development Secretary Javier Lizárraga Mercado admitted that mining groups have paused their operations in the mountains of Concordia due to the strong climate of violence that has also reached them through extortion and "collection of piso."

The SEDESO registry numbers of 2017, indicate that in San Ignacio 59 families left the villages of Ajoya, El Sauz de Ajoya and Santa Apolonia. In that area, at least 10 murders have been reported so far this year.

While in Badiraguato 37 families were expelled from Huixiopa and La Tuna, the old stronghold of "El Chapo Guzman", towns that in 2016 had also registered a strong displacement especially during the search for the now extradited capo but then fugitive, after his infamous escape from the Altiplano Prison. 

According to the Social Development Secretariat of the Government of Sinaloa, the families of displaced people who have had to leave their homes this year have been supported by one thousand "dispenses ", ie supplies, mainly foodstuffs and 1440 pieces black tar corrugated roofing panels.

Displaced from the Municipalities in the southern part of the State of Sinaloa so far in 2017 , the official numbers , ie : Concordia: 977 people = 200 families, San Ignacio: 208 people = 59 families, Badiraguato: 148 people = equaling 37 families.

    1. Not fake. There are fights on ranches of the municipality of Cosalá and San Ignacio through the sumer. Not in the town but the pueblitos (villages) and ranches in municipality. Also near Badiraguato my cousins hear fighting with large weapon like 50 caliber. My American friend in Concordia says me there were fights during the day and night and he sees a body on road.
      All is tranquil in pueblitos by family ranch because one long road that strong trucks can only drive slow unless people fly airplane. This week I am in Culiacan after vacation in Barcelona and uncles and cousins say Culiacan is tranquilo but la Nota Roja Culiacan does not read this way.

  2. This is BS! According to nuthuggers who always have cousins, brothers, uncles, friends etc.. that live in Sinaloa that state is run by only one cartel and it is the very simbol of UTOPIA. Drug lords there have everything under control and nobody leaves the place because it is just so beautiful to live there!

    2. Two truths about them mining mountains,
      One- the persecuted are being persecuted and their lands depooulated,
      Two- the happy people who are not being persecuted or depooulated are very happy for that
      And the other second truth is that there must be gold in them thar hills.
      one more secomd.truth is that narcos need the beet laborers they can find, locals, which proves the narcos are not de populating but the new partners in crime of "new governor Coppel" who must be planning some industrialization to help his deep empty pockets, whatever, but La Chapa had more order in the state of Sinaloa without power, armies, polesias or a budget, which only serve Coppel and Co. to claim total abject and gross incompetence, in spite of the "political powers"

  5. Such a shame!
    Good people who have little to nothing and content with their lives. Can only imagine the fear of displacement which one endures mentally.
    Such disregard of humanity displayed by those government and municipal officials. Then again;
    It's the policy of government to continue an objective regardless of citizens security and wellbeing.
    I can see why so many immigrants look forward to a better life in other countries. Some by choice and others by force.And yet despite
    there sufferings; welcoming mats are often refused.
    A controversial / sensitive topic many countries are facing today. The feeling of meaningless in life can become an obstacle to overcome.

    Hopefully a change for good comes to Mexico
    soon. It's long overdue.

Sicarios must earn a living, but their puppeteers need their money, the real estate con artists banksters and investors like odebrecht, OHL, HIGA, PANAMA PAPERS or cayman islands are waiting for their money and fees and other charges, and since they are No Fools, count on the chinese, israelis and russians pushing for their shit too, as are the European associates all over the banana republics all over the world...

    1. I've been here reading BB for 4 years and it hasn't changed with those guys from sinaloa always saying that nonsense about Sinaloa being peaceful and sicarios not EVER messing with locals. Every cartel is the same get over it, stop listening to those fake sinaloa corridos and come back to reality. Cds has never been no robin hood cartel if that was the case those people would be well off. Let's see what LAME excuse they come up with now.. SMH

    2. 11:25 you can't deny that when La Chapa was there, at least massive depopulation and forced relocation was not an everyday thing, kidnappings for sexploitation was not he idea either, more like eloping or stealing a bride for long lasting relationships, at least reporters kept quiet about it, They did not make waves to injury the good reputation of Sinaloa like mister greedy land grabbing ass governor Coppel and his FUERZAS DELICTIVAS DEL ESTADO DE SINALOA...who surely knows who he works for as the hand up the ass dumbfack dummie.

    3. I can tell a fake keyboard expert (aka cartel cheerleader) because they don’t want to hear a local perspective, think they know more than the local perspective, and biggest tip is the ridiculous generalization using “always”. Like “they always say that.....”. That’s not the case and when you read something that goes against what you want to believe maybe you should read objectively and not take immediate offense b/c it’s not what you want to believe.

    5. 6:48 Oh really? All Sinaloans “always” say Sinaloa is peaceful? That is an absolute lie. Today I read two different BB posts from Sinaloa locals that mentioned issues in Mocorito and another mentioned issues in Cosala and two or three other towns These stupid generalizations about Mexicans are ignorant and I do not understand why some people are eager to attack Mexicans/Sinaloans because I frankly appreciate a local perspective far more than ignorant and sometimes racist comments from “know it alls” who have probably never even been to Mexico.

      anyone remember all the people hiking out of the Sierras to Cosalá ?? A lot of familias. I am sure that we and / ot I did a post on that. They hiked for days with the nothing but the clothes they had on. A year ago or maybe more, when "El Chapo" was on the run and " hiding out ".

  15. They should enact strong gun laws to discourage the criminal cartels from having guns, then everyone will be saved... oh wait

    1. Laws are around friend. The problem is keeping so many people incarcerated. With stronger gun laws alone it could mean a doubling of the already giant prison population and people in the U.S. know very well how costly this is. NO! NO executing drug lords either because this would allow that same corrupt government officials to accuse even political opponents of being dealers and could cause many more wrongful deaths than those meriting them.

  16. I know a sinaloa family that tells me it's a war zone out there and the local kids over 15 would rather go to onother state because cartels there kidnap them and force them to be sicarios. I believe them because they are relatives of mine through marriage. Last week a few young guys were in their house and that's what they were saying, they were getting away from the violence. It's been like that for many years now but yet so called LOCALS (most likely living in the states) post here that it has been safe all along.. Even when the murder rate is off the charts lol they say they don't mess with locals yet my sister in law's family is running away from there because of that.

    1. In Sinaloa cartel members execute people there for just about anything that make a drug dealer upset there. If you have a traffic accident with one of these guys they pull out a gun and kill you. If you spill a drink of theirsnat a bar they pull out a gun and kill you. If you even hint at talking to one of their concubines amd they kill you. Drug dealers there or anywhere don't value human life but since there are so many in Sinaloa well...
      I, saw a Mexican report on Sinaloa that's where I, got these examples. Another example from that same report of how bad Sinaloa really is is that Mexican paisas comming from Los Angeles into Mexico to visit relatives prefer to travel to El Paso TX then thru Juarez and Chihuahua into the heart of Mexico every year instead of traveling thru Baja and Sonora and thru Sinaloa - all CDS controlled territory. This even though they could save themselves perhaps 500 miles of driving distance or more if they where to go thru Sinaloa instead. This has nothing to do with the road condition in those places.

    2. Yes. I see comments like that too. "I'm from the US but moved down here three years ago and everything is perfectly safe. Only criminals get hurt, just stay away from them and you're fine". So naive.

    3. That’s absolute BS. Sinaloa is not a war zone and kids over 15 aren’t forced to be sicarios. Why would you perpetuate such fiction???
