While the Western media declared war on Venezuela, no one speaks about Mexico


In September 2014, the Mexican police opened fire on buses carried students from the college of Ayotzinapa to the city of Mexico. They were about to take part, like every year, in a gathering dedicated to the memory of 400 students that were assassinated in 1968 in the capital, ten days before the premiere of the Olympic Games. They would return with the same buses.

Six students died instantly and dozens injured from the assault by the police. Then, the police evacuated two buses, captured 43 students and transported them to an unknown location with police cars. Since then, there are no signs of them. The government claims that the 43 students were kidnapped by the local police which cooperates with drug dealers. Yet, it has not given any adequate explanation about the motives of the kidnappers and information about the location of the bodies of those who have been murdered.


With the case shocking Mexico, an international committee of experts was called to begin investigations. Yet, from the first week, the members of the committee started to complain about the constant barriers put by the government, as well as, some threats they received. A few days ago, it has been revealed that the phones of the committee members have been intercepted with Pegasus, a very expensive system bought by the Mexican government from Israel with dozens of million dollars. The same software was used for the interception of the most important intellectuals, lawyers, journalists, and their families.

It is obvious that the government is greatly responsible for the tragedy and tries to cover its responsibilities. However, as it happens to be one of the beloved of the global markets, the international noise around this case is very low. There were no resolutions in the European Parliament and the UN, nor any denouncements against the Mexican government from international leaders-organizations, nothing. Can you imagine what would have happened in case that in Venezuela of Maduro, 43 students had disappeared for three years after the cold blood murder and injury of dozens of their fellow students?

I do not in any way imply that offenses against human rights, either by the Mexican or Venezuelan government, should be counterbalanced. But when Europeans and domestic politicians deal with international issues, they have to take into account the geopolitical environment, culture and history of the countries to which they refer.

In Mexico, over 100,000 have been murdered and about 30,000 have disappeared over the last decade. These are victims of the war on drugs, but also of the degeneration of the value of human life in a continent tortured extensively by colonialism, before being converted into a backyard of the United States. Before we make another resolution on Venezuela or Cuba, it is a good idea to read Eduardo Galeano's excellent book "Open Veins of Latin America". It is also a good idea for summer reading ...
