Imparcial Oaxaca


  1. Holy crap man… Wasn’t Oaxaca relatively chill throughout all this?

    This is absolutely a bloodbath… ☹️

  2. Damn! what a shame..
    Oaxaca is so beautiful with humble good peeps.
    No place in Mexico is safe from cartels, thanks to the crooked system in Mexico and the US.
    Without the US supply and demand, Mexico would never have been cartel infested.
    Too many BILLIONS in profit so the cartels and violence will continue in Mexico.
    Not to mention the drug overflow in the US of A with junkies and homeless in an all time high

  3. USA propping up china w electronics purchases n lifting up mexico w drug buys. China n mexico both say "thank you, idiots, now here's some MORE fentanyl for your children!"

  4. Are these mostly random attacks? Nobody claiming fame for them?

  5. If Mexico had a non corrupt government, they could have gotten a better grip on Their Own country, and helped the whole situation completly before it spun into this mess. Start in your own backyard.

    1. Not really. Things ran pretty smoothly before Calderon/2006.

    2. I know of no country existing ever…w/non-corrupt gubbb. Please remind me, if of one you know. That is a pretty dream; poof.

    3. While many governments are corrupt, yes, one still needs to start cleaning up their own space/mess. Finger pointing gets nowhere.

  6. This is so sad for the people who live there. Just trying to work and survive . If it gets worse, tourists will stay away too.

  7. This is odd. Oaxaca was like one of the safest regions before. However I did think it was odd all these years how it’s that safe when so many groups operate there. It’s not like it isn’t strategic either.

  8. Oaxaca has always been safe its been one of the most safest states when the Oaxaca cartel was at its prime and the Parada family was controlling all the regions no one would dare to steal or kill without reason, Pedro was the first narco captured when calderon entered office because they found Pedro useless & a blockage for the other cartels since they all wanted to enter the state to assert control, he had a lot of influence up north, today Oaxaca has seen a growth in violence ever since cjng entered the state not even with the zetas back then was the state this violent

    1. The indigenous people in Oaxaca are targeted now for extortion.

    2. Cjng and cds are both used protected by government USA/Mexico.
      There's no way any organization majes it that big without government help abd protection.
      Vicentillo said he, alongvwuth cds was/were protected by USA
