Drug War Wipes Out a Generation of Young

El Diario had a piece Saturday, 9/17/2011, entitled as above, discussing youth death in Ciudad Juarez. The M3 Report has been commenting for some time on the number of young being slain in Mexico. Some have been infants as young as 6 months old. Others were killed when their mothers were shot in their pregnant abdomen, killing the unborn infant and mother. Although it is focused on Cd. Juarez, it likely mirrors the rest of Mexico as well.  This is not a translation of the piece, but simply to illustrate the seriousness of the violence and what it is doing to Mexico’s future.

The deaths of young people increased by 280 percent last year compared with 2007, which means that the deaths of this population group almost quadrupled. Teresa Almada Mireles, director of CASA Youth Promotion and academic at the Autonomous University of Ciudad Juarez (UACJ), says murder has now surpassed traffic accidents as the leading cause of youth death in Mexico. “We have lost a large part of a generation and the next is also in trouble,” says Emilia González Third, in Ciudad Juarez representative of the Commission for Solidarity and Defense of Human Rights AC (COSYDDHAC). Mexico and Ciudad Juarez in particular owe a great debt to their young because they have not been offered alternatives, because they have no other options.

**Asterisk denotes death involving a police officer or a member of the military serving in that capacity.

(There were so many reports of 1-2 dead, that not all are reported. This is not to minimize their deaths, but simply due to the large numbers.)

  2. norm9do Says:

    The reporting might generalize at times, but it is not exagerating as to Mexico as a whole being a dangerous place for tourists, travellers and it’s own citizens….

  3. Handon Says:

    In your first piece “Drug War Wipes Out a Generation of Young”, I think that you have made an unfair generalization. You say “Although it is focused on Cd. Juarez, it likely mirrors the rest of Mexico as well.” You, more than most, must acknowledge that Ciudad Juarez is the most dangerous place in Mexico (perhaps the world) right now, but Ciudad Juarez is absolutely not the same as everywhere else in Mexico. There are many places which are dangerous, but there are also many places which are much, much safer than our towns in the US and UK. Take Merida for example, what’s the murder rate there? I do not believe that it mirrors Ciudad Juarez one bit. I believe there are other safe places like Merida in Mexico, so to say that the piece talks about Ciudad Juarez but “likely mirrors” the rest of Mexico is simply going too far for me.
