(en) Collective Rupture (RC): "Long live our community! Only the people can defend the people!": This is how the people of Tierra Colorada thank their Community Police by Demián Revart (ca) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 8 Feb 2018 07:55:31 +0200

At the cry of "Long live our community!, only the people can defend the people!", Residents and a group of organized women from the communities that make up the municipality of Juan R. Escudero in the state of Guerrero, created an entire environment of celebration and remembrance on Friday, February 2, in honor of the Community Police of Tierra Colorada, the municipal head of the region, which belongs to the confederalist and autonomous security project FUSDEG ( United Front for Security and Development of the State of Guerrero ). ---- With a caravan of trucks -some of which have been expropriated from the now inactive municipal and state police- some 160 community members made a tour among the towns of the demarcation. Curious were the messages and greetings that were shared between residents and community, as unlike the state police, the Community Police is made up of humble people and recognized by their peers, so their effectiveness is to emerge from the breast of the own town. It's not unusual among people that someone has a family member comunitari o!

On March 26, 2013, the people decided to take up arms to expel the various cartels and their criminal cells - or colloquially known as "la maña" - for the reason that "there was a lot of outrage of organized crime against citizens ( ...) they were kidnapping, extorting and taking charge, "says Commander Maximino, who without leaving a long weapon that is " more like a symbol because we expropriate the bad guys " , received various groups of community members - as if they had not. seen for years- that congregated in the community base of Tierra Colorada for the celebration.

The positive results of this project of autonomous security are so visible to the state horizon to the degree that "we were already in Petaquillas in Chilpancingo and Xaltianguis in Acapulco to shake hands with the people affected to extreme levels by crime, however, the cartels they met to expel us because they were not going to lose their territories of conquest overnight. "

Today, having these two key cities of Guerrero as the most violent in the Top 10 of the country, assessing this type of movement is a social responsibility regardless of flags or ideologies.

"They have ambushed our comrades, a few months ago they came to attack the community base with grenades," says Maximino, without feeling indignant at this event.

"This fight is arduous, continuous and very dangerous, but it has been worth it," says one of the teachers, who from an early age began to do the integral cleaning and clean about a hundred chairs of the community base to receive their children. companions in the best conditions.

The FUSDEG has presence in La Palma, Las Piñas, Omitlan, Palo Gordo, Potrero, Tlayolapa, Tlachocouite, Villa Guerrero, Garrapatas and another ten villages, providing the "service" of security (in quotes, since the community tells us that it is rather a voluntary resistance and with all the taste of the world) both at the head of a more urban court and in rural areas.

"We do not make incursions as other armed groups do that are linked to the government, it is done with due respect together with the peoples and taking into account their local and democratic authorities so that they defend themselves autonomously (...) it is just to throw the hand, is mutual support. "

Currently, both the coordinators and commanders -all of them elected in an assembly and public manner- have thought more about " this is not about acronyms, but about the people, that little by little the idea of community self-defense expands nationally but not for the already formed groups, but for the organization to be of the peoples, of the territories and that way we advance to the dignity that we deserve so much here, as in Chilpancingo, as in Acapulco as in Mexico City ".

And so, with a meal, music to light the atmosphere and the raffle of a cake of three milks, people thanked him with this simple and subtle detail to all those people who daily sacrifice their breaks to provide rest for their families.
