As Mexico fights the problem of the American War on Drugs in their country, the citizens themselves are trying their own methods to regain some sort of balance. Los Zetas, trained at The Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, (formerly the School of the Americas, a United States Department of Defense facility at Fort Benning), have been terrorizing Mexico and turning its once peaceful and organized drug trade into a nightmare. This is part of the plot to undermine and destabilize Mexico by the American government. American media presents Los Zetas as just another drug gang in Mexico fighting like the rest, but never admits to the fact, that this gang is theirs.
The following is the video and the exclusive translation into English of Los Matazetas introducing themselves and announcing their intentions to ‘take back’ the state of Veracruz:

Good afternoon. It is 4PM of July 27, of the current year. We’d like to announce to the state of Veracruz and the rest of the Mexican Republic, that we are the group Los Matazetas from the New Generation Jalisco Cartel, and that this fight against the criminal group of kidnappers known as Los Zetas started because of the harm they’ve done to our colleagues, our friends, our families and the rest of the people in the state of Veracruz.
The fight has not been easy. Since 2006, we’ve been fighting to keep the tranquility and security of everyone our fellow countrymen in Veracruz. Here, it is nothing new that the municipal police and the state police work for them. We know that they carry out the kidnappings and then turn over the victims to Los Zetas. In every corporation (government organization), there’s corruption from a police officer to a court prosecutor, of which we have knowledge and we will announce their names.
Also, we would like to tell to you all that you don’t need to be afraid because the man who brought them to your state has already finished his term as governor: Mr. Fidel Herrera Beltran, aka. Zeta 1 (they allege that the former Veracruz governor was a member of Los Zetas). Everyone in the entire republic knows that he helped them carry out all of the kidnappings, extortions and the rest of the illicit activities.
We would also like to request for the journalists out there to not let the death of our friends go in vain, Milo Vela and Yolanda Ordaz (two journalists killed in Veracruz last week). We know the people that killed them were Gilberto Osorio Lopez, aka. ‘El Gordo Osorio,’ Juan Alberto Rodriguez Estrada, aka. ‘El Caribe,’ Hector Mendez Romero, aka ‘El Gordo Chachas,’ and Tulio, former Zeta hitmen boss, because our (journalist) friends were providing information to the authorities that was going to lead to their capture.
We asked the people of Veracruz to report them to SEDENA (Secretariat of National Defense) and the navy. They are the only ones in this state who have not been corrupted by their money. To those family members who have suffered due to the death of a loved one because of these scumbag Zetas, and if they have knowledge that can lead to their capture, report them to these authorities.
Through this conduit, we would also like to reach out to Governor Javier Duarte to express our respect and admiration for fighting against these scumbag Zetas, and to let him know that this is not a matter of politics or intended to affect his governorship; this is for our countrymen because they are tired of so much injustice. I wish every single one of them could speak up end express how they feel about what those scumbags have done to them. But unfortunately, not every one of them have the capability, connections or financial means to seek that they are brought to justice, and others are simply afraid to report these cases because of the government corruption.
We’d like to say to all Mexicans that this is the moment to act. We are all free. There will never be an end to drug trafficking, but we can still turn this around for the sake of achieving peace, tranquility, and for the future of our children. If we don’t act, what can we expect in the future of our lives? Are we going to live in fear, thinking that at any moment, they can show up to demand that we pay them protection money, or to kidnap one of our loved ones so they can take what we earn with our hard honest work?
Those people don’t have any respect for anything. They rape, kidnap, kill and imposed their so-called protection money payments. Let’s not wait any longer, for tomorrow this situation may affect you or one of your loved ones. This is the moment for anyone who has any information about any Zeta, whether here or in another state, report them. To this matter, we will solve this problem our way. We have demonstrated you all that we give death to all of those (Zetas) we capture.
Finally, we would like to salute all of those who have continued to fight against Los Zetas, and we will like for them to know that everyone of Los Zetas’ enemies is our friend.
Sincerely, Group Matazetas of the New Generation Jalisco Cartel. Thank you very much, gentlemen.
The movement to close the School of the Americas (formerly known as the SOA Watch Update) publishes a newspaper - iPresente!, three times a year and sent to approximately 50,000 subscribers The purpose of the newspaper is to give updates about the state of the campaign and of events and developments of the movement. Inspired by the case of slain Archbishop Óscar Romero, who said "we who have a voice must speak for the voiceless," Father Bourgeois and two companions posed as military officers and crossed into Ft. Benning in 1983. The two men and a woman climbed a tree near the barracks housing Salvadoran troops and read the final homily of Archbishop Oscar Romero through megaphones. Bourgeois and his companions were arrested and Bourgeois was then sentenced to 18 months in prison for trespassing onto Federal property
Bourgeois and his followers began to research the School of the Americas, conduct public education campaigns, lobby Congress, and practice nonviolent resistance at the School of the Americas facilities.
Following the November 1989 murders of six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter at the Universidad Centroamericana “José Simeón Cañas” in El Salvador in which graduates of the School of the Americas were involved SOA Watch organized an annual protest to be held on the anniversary of the massacre beginning the next year. The event has been held every year since then.
