Prison chief alleged of arming inmates to carryout Mexico birthday massacre

27 July, 2010

Mexican authorities are shocked with allegations that a prison chief was responsible for letting out inmates and arming them to carry out the July 18 Birthday Massacre where 17 teenagers and young adults were killed.

At first Mexican authorities had thought that the attack was by rival drug gangs but now the situation has turned on its head after it has been alleged that the men who took part in the attack were all prison inmates who were sentenced for drug crimes.

Mexican authorities have said that the guard’s official vehicles, fire weapons and ammunition were given to the inmates to carry out an assignment for the prison chief.
The inmates were then said to have returned back to their cells after the attack.
All prison guards alleged to be involved in the scandal and the prison chief were all placed on house arrest.
On Sunday, a spokesman from the attorney general’s office, Ricardo Najera told reporters “According to witnesses, the inmates were allowed to leave with authorization of the prison director to carry out instructions for revenge attacks using official vehicles and using guards’ weapons for executions.”
It has been suspected that the prison guard may have been on the paying scale of a drug gang but this has not been confirmed as yet.
This last scandal has highlighted the corruption level in Mexico and the level in which drug gangs have infiltrated in Mexico.
25,000 people have died in the last 3.3 years after Mexican President, Felipe Calderón, started the war on drugs when he came to office in late 2006.

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
