Guerrero / Mexico City, December 9 (ElSur / SinEmbargo) .- The wave of violence that began last Tuesday in the Sinaí neighborhood spread and affected 28 surrounding neighborhoods where there is no public transportation, and caused the suspension of classes of 14 schools in the area where teachers and parents agreed to return their children January 8, 2018.

10 days after the holidays began, the schools yesterday looked empty and closed, without any notice on their doors. But they are not the only ones, other schools of Ciudad Renacimiento, Mozimba, Progreso and even the Autonomous University of Guerrero (UAG) also opted to suspend classes due to insecurity.

On a tour of Sinaí and other surrounding neighborhoods, El Sur noted the closure of the buildings, located in areas populated by Afro-descendant and indigenous migrants from Costa Chica and Montaña del Estado, who work in hotels, shopping centers, or sell handicrafts on the beaches.

In the streets, from 9 in the morning to 11 in the day there was not a single municipal patrol, state or military policemen. On the other hand, at the corners of El Quemado and Carnation avenues, there were people desperate due to the only Sinaí-Hospital and feeder Sector 6 busses not running.

The passenger vans, which are the ones that go into the neighborhoods, suspended their routes since Thursday afternoon, after the murder of a driver of the Jacarandas - Intersection route in front of the Central de Abasto. On Tuesday, three more drivers of the yellow buses of the Sector 6-Downtown route were executed in the Sinaí neighborhood.

In that neighborhood -Sinaí- where Catholics, evangelicals and Jehovah's Witnesses live together, the streets have biblical names, and during Thursday evening there were scenes of intense shootings between members of antagonistic criminal groups, and the State Police. Neighbor versions indicated that two drivers were deprived of their liberty during exchanges of fire.

The confrontations spread, according to the own versions of neighbors from the bordering neighborhoods such as Jacarandas, Alborada 19, in Tierra and Libertad, and CNC, and with that panic ensued, causing the absence of vigils for the Virgin of Juquila.

Yesterday morning the only spaces with life were the corners of the streets and the main avenue, where fearfully some expected a bus to pick them up, and everything else looked silent.

At night El Quemado Avenue, which turns into Sinaí, and Betania, looks dark, the street lighting placed two and a half months ago by the state government does not work, among the darkness there are people walking fast, young people, men and women who leave for their workday, but no longer find transportation.

The stretch of road for some is up to 4 kilometers from Boulevard Vicente Guerrero to the Sinaí neighborhood, but there are those who still have to walk to the Alborada neighborhood or its extention, and they do it among the dust and the slowness of the repaving work of the avenue where the Acabús feeder route passes.

The bus routes that do not provide service and that go from the neighborhoods to the intersections are: Jarandas, Unidos por Guerrero, Sinaí, Cervantes Delgado, Izazaga, CNC, Fidel Velázquez, Graciano Sánchez, and Nopalitos.


During the tour the observed schools closed were: the Federal High School number 6 of the Emiliano Zapata neighborhood, one of the largest in the area that serves more than 600 students in the morning shift; Technical High School 199, of the the Unidos por Guerrero neighborhood ; the telesecundaria María del Carmen Rojas, the Bicentennial Elementary and the Indigenous Preschool Education Center (CEPI), and Guadalupe Victoria of the San Miguelito neighborhood.

Also the Native Bilingual Indigenous School Acamapichtli, in the neighborhood Alborada 19; the Elementary School Guerrero es Primero, the Juan R. Escudero Kindergarten of the Sinaí neighborhood, the CEPI Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, in the CNC neighborhood; the Juan Escutia elementary school of the Tierra y Libertad neighborhood.

Likewise, the Bilingual Elementary School Ve'e Savi and the CEPI Gabriela Mistral of the neighborhood Unidos por Guerrero; the Telesecundaria Samuel Quiroz Cabrera and the Technical High School 200 Ángel Aguirre Rivero in the Postal neighborhood.

In the Miguel Alemán Valdez Kindergarten, children, parents and teachers celebrated posadas and the last day of activities, said a mother.

One of the supervisors in the area, who asked not to have his name published for safety, informed that by agreement of parents and teachers, they will not return to school until January 8, due to "the problem that is arising in that place", in reference to the violence.


But not only in the suburban zone were classes suspended; High School 4, and Cecyteg 1, of Mozimba, as well as the Hermenegildo Galeana Elementary School of the Juan R. Escudero neighborhood, from the western zone, will return January 8.

In the Ciudad Renacimiento neighborhood, the Ruben Figueroa Alcocer kindergarten stopped activities, and the elementary schools Adolfo Lopez Mateos and Benemérito of the Americas. On the busy Ruiz Cortines Avenue, classes of the College of Psychology and the Bachelor College campus 32 were suspended.


  1. US needs to step in enough is enough because of the drugs getting into our cities neighborhoods flowing in from Mexico mostly being sent over by these cartel criminals we have meth cities and cities where everyday several people die from heroin fentanyl overdoses we are not going to stop this epidemic unless we stop the source.

    1. We aren’t in danger of going extinct Calm Down. Plenty of druggies to take their place

    2. The source is the demand.

    3. alot of meth is made in the US, attacking the source wont stop the epidemic only make prices go higher, aslong as there is a demand there will be a source, the solution is where the demand is at, because sources are too many its like a game of whack a mole, you can destroy mexican cartela and some other group will emerge, what happened when colombian cartels fell? mexicans took over now if the mexicans fall someone else will rise, the way to manage it, and i say manage because ending it is likely impossible, the way to manage it is by education, educate the right way, we are only being tought drugs are bad tweakers are evil and you die if u do drugs thats all, we only portray addicts in such a low life way that discourages them from seeking help and most wont admitt to having a problem because we teach them that a problem is already when you hit rock bottom, addicts need to be treated like patients first not right away as criminals most need mental health which out of reach for most americans even those that are well off. and of course mexico needs to bring to justice those that engage on these criminal acts

    4. The source is driven by demand AND AND AND AND AND profit margin which is huge (ignoring human cost since life is cheap).

      If the profit margin was none, there would be no business case and thus no source.

      Only legalization can get the profit out of drugs which will get the drugs out of society!

      ... and noooo you will never get a 100% drugs free society, but without a great business case for the corrupt politicians, cartels and pushers you will get a lot less and less damaging-

    5. 11:38 "legalization" taxes the franchises, the dispensaries, the buyers, the sellers, the wages that must be paid hourly, the lobbyists...all of which must get paid unless you.want to freelance and deal illegally on the side AND RECRUIT more and more customers by getting them addicted to "samples"...
      The o ly solution? Free or very cheap supplied by the state.
      And death enalty for replacement crimes, zero tolerance, replete with No excuuuses.
      --Moreover, the whole point of being a pinchi mariguano is the illegality chingao, not a pinchi snob job with prescriptions, licenses, and receipts", no pinchis mameeen!

    6. 1:52 I doubt the inhabitants of these little Acapulco Ranchos without busses for public transportation or schools move a lot of shit to your beloved US cities and that makes them a target for invasion, no pinchis mames güey.

  2. Put a fork in Guerrero.

  3. And yet no shame on behalf of governments inept efforts to curtail the violence. The essential provisions entitled to its citizens have bowed to those criminal elements. A clear indication of an inept government. Furthermore, the incompetence to those whose sole duty is to maintain the fabrics of a civilized society.
    Such a shame!
    The indigenous Indio can do a better job than these fucks!


    1. Anyone not led by their own greed, with just an ounce of belief that life is fragile, could do a better job E42...As we've both said here before. Kill off the greed. Impossible?? Maybe....but it's the only way.

    2. Odd, E42, you more or less write the same comment but in different words.

    3. Apologies for not writing it more pleasant. Where the facts seem to fall under ones municipal / government for having allowed this to begin with.
      Where life has been and continues to be halted by such individuals. Can’t sugar coat the truth.
      I see in black and white. Where evidence points to an epidemic which the government alone bears the responsibility. If order was placed and implemented this would not have occurred. Moreover, to those who serve and protect.
      Where lies the question? Who do they really protect?
      I can truly say not it’s citizens if education and transportation are withheld.

    4. Public servants serve and protect:
      themselves, their own, their brethren,
      and maybe then, by accident, the public they exact their luxurious way of life from...example the secretary of oublic security of Duarte de ochoa, leyzaola, capella, Garcia luna...

    5. But you can sugar coat a lollipop.

    6. 4:33 yeah, to better train la mamadora, then we will never see the end of it...

  4. Sounds like a war zone but unlike a war a war eventually ENDS!

    1. 4:51 Dear Canadiana, beibi, Soft Coups last a lot longer, than Coup d' Etáts, guerrero has been at war in a soft coup since the 40's when president Miguel Aleman discovered Acapulco did not stink like veracruz and would have a better shot than come ting with La Habana Hilton for prostitution, pedophile and pederasta tourism, Cacapulco was also further from God And the US, and the Florida mobsters that chose to go to Colombia after Fidel fack up the americans and kicked them out of cuba with help of El Comandante Che Guevara, Camilo Ciefuegos, Huber Matos..."and all the others barbones"
      Guerrero wars just picked up after the Communistas Copperos started demanding 15 cents of one peso per kilo of copra, (coconut meat), that is a 1.25 cent of a dollar pay rise...
      The copreros got shot up and some got murdered by the government "forces", soldiers and police for their naughty pretenses and snobs of demanding schools and hospitals instead of going to college and pulling themselves up by their boot straps...
      Religion has just brought more murdering and drug trafficking to the state, with martyrdoom for those that get caught like the murderers of Acteal/Chenalhó released after George Soros paid for their appeals...

  5. Lucky i wish this happened when i was going to school

  6. never noticed how lucky I' live in sinaloa hope peace can be with all my mexican brothers I will pray for you mexico

  7. Now the kids will be out on the streets instead!

    This must be the ultimate recruitment tactic by the criminals to get youngsters to join the gangs.

    1. It's Christmas season, vacation time chingadamadre!
      But the buses and the polesias and mainly the melitary are all gone home for the same reason, the electricity must have cost billions of pesos that didn't work, but the peisos must be on some secret offshore bank account, the US steals it, Cayman islands, panama, odebrecht, higa, golf clubs and exotic towers have been exposed, but the europeans, the chinese and the russians are begging for some business..

    2. The teachers do this every year. As soon as they get their year end bonuses, they stop classes. They use security as the issue even when some of the schools don't have that big of a security problem. I believe the end of the school calendar is 12/15 anyway. So it's sounding drastic on the January 8th return date (which is the return date EVERY year).

  8. 1:36 Yeah, the kids will be out burning their late model cars' tires for fun.

  9. The word on the streets from my cousin who lives in Amatillo is the Russian mob has arrived in Acapulco. Niko Bellic is wanting to setup a pipeline with the CDS and the Chinese Triad. Bellic has run guns and drugs for the Russian mob for decades. He's former KGB and very tight with Russian Presidente Vladimir Putin. What this means for Acapulco, I don't know. But Niko Bellic's nickname is "Большие пушки", which means "Big Guns", or "Grandes Pistolas".

  10. @1:52- no, no. EPN refuses Trumps help, says he's got everything under control. Lol...

  11. "Grandes Pistolas" has come to Acapulco to take over. Run and take cover.

  12. I always wondered why the Coco oil industry died.. I used to see abandoned mansions between Acapulco and Ixtapa..

    During the Mega Feria they have Russian ice skating show.

  13. Where is Sol Prendido
