Videos: Reynosa students live in the midst of an endless war while walking to school, in the background.. a shootout

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat from Tamaulipas Código Rojo Twitter

This video illustrates  students living a "normal day"..walking to school in Tamaulipas... "No Pasa Nada"

Translation of narrative by Sol Prendido for Borderland Beat

Video translation #1 is as follows:

Guy 1:  I just want to get home. What the fuck! This is normal in Reynosa. You can walk like this and nothing will happen to you. Jokingly guy says: We have a level 3 ballistic vest and helmet. ...it’s at the Materno hospital bitch. That hospital that’s over there. It just now kicked off. Just knock at my house.

Guy 2: They're shooting at that wall.

Guy 1: You guys can just say that we were held up by the shooting and we couldn’t get through.   (They’re concerned about getting to school on time).

Guy 2: What the fuck, what the fuck! (His panic is setting in).

Guy 1: They’re fucking each other up! Listen to this guy throwing rounds...
Video translation # 2 is as follows:
Motherfuck,fucker! This is what we’re living through at C131 a few minutes before we leave this afternoon. As you can see the authorities are out front taking security measures.

  1. It is so sad how everyone lives with this crazy violence! We used to party in these towns growing up and these towns had a lot of tourism. Also why is Nuevo Larado so calm compared to Reynosa, Matamoros, Piedras Negras??? I don't get it!

    2. Soy de la region de Santa Maria del Oro con mucho orgullo lo digo. A lo que me refiero es que en Durango no andan como salvajes con balaceras a diario sin respetar a la familia. Mequillo

  7. I've been going to Matamoros these last three weekends and it's quiet. You don't see any army or marine convoys. Actually peaceful. I arrive late at night and ppl are out and about

  8. Sadly the bullet-proof backpacks we have heard about in the news would actually be beneficial to the children of Reynosa...
