Faced with mass crimes perpetrated by the different political institutions related to local and global economies, and legal mafia, "today, says the author of this text, in Mexico if it martyred, we do not have any other choice but to break the silence and invent our own insurgency." ---- As a result, we take a recent text Raúl Zibechi brings other data. ---- Claudio Albertani ---- In any case, I want to inevitable that we ("we" consists of millions of "I"), we intimidions those who have power and threaten us. ---- We have no alternative but to respond to threats by other threats and neutralize those politicians who, in a completely unconscious way, are resigned to the disaster or even actively contribute to prepare. ---- Günther Anders [*] ---- On September 26, 43 students from the Rural Normal School "Raúl Isidro Burgos" of Ayotzinapa, State of Guerrero, disappeared, six people were killed - including five normalistes, one was horribly scratched - and 25 others were injured in the city of Iguala. Faced with a crime on this scale, the first thing we feel is outrage, trembling with emotion and impotence. Immediately, the questions arise.

Who is responsible?
The former mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Abarca and his wife, María de los Ángeles Pineda, alleged intellectual authors of the crime, now on the run?
The Iguala municipal police officers who arrested the students?
The municipal police Cocula that helped?
The federal army, on the premises, which was not involved?
The Guerreros Unidos criminal group linked to Abarca, who would have students disappear after police reportedly delivered their I need regular.

We're talking about a network of accomplices. How far will it?
Until deposed governor of Guerrero, Ángel Aguirre, who was not imprisoned Abarca when he could have done?
Until the Attorney General of the Republic, Jesús Murillo Karam, which does did not act against the former mayor, despite repeated complaints against him?
Until Party of the Democratic Revolution [left] which covered both Aguirre and Abarca?
Until the Secretary of State for the Interior, Osorio Chong, who leads his own war against students from rural normal schools?
Until the leaders of the European Union, not to lose juicy business, "support the efforts of the federal government?"

Rural normal schools are part of a larger project of popular education that emerged during the Mexican Revolution. Their very existence is a cry of revolt against the current economic model, in which young farmers informed and critics do not have their place. MS [Federal Ministry of Education], bureaucrats, the National Union of Education Workers, the media, the academic establishment, the police, judges, journalists and all major political parties are complicit in this massacre because, one way or another, they helped build the image of normal schools as hotbeds of guerrilla and students as figures of scum.

The crime of Iguala did not come alone. December 12, 2011, the Aguirre police killed two students slyly of the normal school, Jorge Alexis Herrera and Gabriel Echeverría, during a violent eviction operation on the highway of the sun. "It was clean Road ", had openly declared a police chief. A few days later, January 7, 2012, a truck knocked down a group of students in a normal school that collected money from motorists on the federal highway Acapulco-Zihuatanejo. Several were injured and two died. On May 24, Aurora Tecoluapa student of normal rural school "General Emiliano Zapata" of Amilcingo, State of Morelos, was killed by a car on the Mexico-Oaxaca highway, while six of her companions were injured.

What we are experiencing is a war that the Mexican government is waging against youth, especially young rebellious of proletarian origin. On 2 October 2013, student Mario González García was arrested in Mexico City while traveling by bus to an event [**]. In other words, he was arrested without having committed any crime by the mere fact of being an activist and known to have participated in the struggle for the defense of the Colleges of Sciences and Humanities (CCH).

Incredibly, Mario was convicted and remains in prison, although he has not committed any offense, as Josef K, the protagonist of the novel The Trial Kafka. On October 19, while in the country climbed the indignation caused by the events of Iguala, another young, Ricardo Esparza Jesus Villegas, a student of the University Centre of Lagos, Jalisco, was killed by police State in the city of Guanajuato, where he went to attend the Cervantino Festival.

It would be wrong to believe that these crimes have to do with a supposed "delay" of Mexico. These are, on the contrary, events quite modern, "ordinary" in the sense that Hannah Arendt denounced when horrified, she talked about the banality of evil. A crime like that of Iguala can occur anywhere: in Palestine, Syria, Iraq, no doubt, but also in France, the US, Italy... The dictatorship of the bureaucratic economy must be accompanied by ongoing violence. We are all human beings collectively extended with an expiration date; we are no longer mortal as individuals, but as a group whose existence is only allowed until further notice.

How to explain the reaction (so far) modest Mexican people before these events so terrible? There are more than half a century, Günther Anders - the philosopher and antinuclear activist - thinking lucidly and ruthless on the problem of how the world today produces dehumanized beings who know no remorse or shame the face of crimes horrible they themselves committed. We live in a new era of totalitarianism that turns humans into mechanical parts incapable of human reactions. While this is most hellish there appear, we exist as more than mechanical parts or materials required for the machine.

And yet, the last word has not been said. "From whatever angle it is received, this is hopeless. It is not the least of its virtues ", he wrote a few years ago the anonymous author of a famous pamphlet, The Coming Insurrection. And they added: "The sphere of political representation closes. From left to right, it's the same nothingness that takes poses cador or air blank, the same heads gondola exchange their speech according to the latest findings of the communication department. (...) Nothing that occurs is, by far, at the height of the situation. Even in his silence, the population seems infinitely more adult than all the puppets bickering to govern. " These words that relate to France and despair of young migrants in the ghettos of European cities, apply perfectly to what we experience here and now. Today in Mexico if this martyred, we have no other choice but to break the silence and invent our own insurgency.
