Guerrero Governor Angel Aguirre Resigns

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat

Guerrero Governor Angel Aguirre has resigned.

Pressure had been building since the events of September 26th became an international story and outrage.
On September 26th and the early hours of September 27th students studying at the Normal School, (teacher college) in hopes of becoming elementary school teachers, came under attack in the Guerrero city of Iguala. Buses carrying the students and a futbol team bus came under gunfire killing 8, in three separate attacks, attributed to municipal police allegedly under the direction of Guerreros Unidos cartel, the Iguala mayor and the mayor’s wife. 43 of the students called normalistas were kidnapped at the time of the last attack and are still missing.

Governor Aguirre’s name has also been highlighted as if not directly involved with the attacks, perhaps has been complicit in other crimes, or at best case allowed criminality to prevail with impunity.  The accusations have gained in strength and opinion, something Aguirre could not overcome.

Since Wednesday Aguirre has been in negotiations for his resignation, and since then he has negotiated demands for replacements in key state government positions of responsibility.  It has not been announced as yet what was finally decided upon.  

On October 8th in three points of the city of Acapulco, mantas (banners) were hung:

The three were found; Next to Los Cruces Church, a bridge at Vicente Guerrero Blvd and in the Juarez sector.

The message is addressed to Mexico president Enrique Peña Nieto;
Mr President Enrique Peña Nieto, we are fed up with the massive crime in this town, because of Victor Aguirre, aka "El Feo",  with help and support of his cousin, the Governor Ángel Aguirre Rivero"
Victor Hugo Aguirre Garzón, is first cousin of the governor of Guerrero,rumors say the governor's  campaign was financed by Beltran Leyva, and he has ties to Guerrero Unidos and their allies.  

His cousin Victor is the leader of the Independent Cartel of Acapulco, an ally of Guerreros Unidos.


  1. About posting comments, so we know handheld devices are ok....but computers not so much.

    However I have to be logged into my google account for blogger so I don't get the robot test.

    I have called on Buggs but I don't know when he has time to take a look. I am sorry, I am still trying to figure out how to disable the robot :(

  2. How did Mexico ever get to the point where known criminal leaders are directly related to politicians? That should have been the first red flag!!! Unfortunately that is the way of do doing business in Mexico, and now we act surprised? C, Mon let's use some common sense!

  3. Why should the corrupt governor be allowed to name anyone into key government positions following his departure? Nothing will change if he's allowed to do this name the replacements. Probably includes those who would have the responsibility to investigate him and or those will power over the purse strings.

  4. Much very honored to be able to participate, robot or no robot...
    --How is angelico rivera el gavioto able to negotiate anyting? He should be under arrest until the missing people appear...
    --also do not forget that the policia unica unificada and nazional has been the source of more problems than they solve, the do notcare about the communities they serve and protect, they only care to do the central powers bidding, be it governor or president, all KGB syle, no fucking good...
    --el castillo de cagada next, and pena nieto, nobody needs their prepotent asses around while the internatonal press and MSM keeps quiet and sweeps it all under the rug, more action is needed to rub their crap on their faces...
    --AND do not forget emilio chuayffet, secretary of education with a compromise with the reformers financed and led by the bill cllnton global initiative, jeb bush, mitt romney, bill and melinda gates and warren buffett, it is their aims of privatizing the education budget in mexico what has led pena nieto and chuayffet to launch a war against the mexican school system that seems to be worse than anyhing la chuky ever did, trying to "finance" education in mexico all the way to hell like on the US, were even cooking school costs a quarter of a million dollars and the cooks can't cook an olla de frijoles worth the piedras, they egged pena nieto on to these "communist" schools, and we have seen, they have no scruples in mexico like they had no scruples on the US, taking over from junior highs to colleges with drugs and gangs and guns to give a bad name to public education from the government
