Mexico, a failed state: Jesuits

Jesuit university rectors warned that Mexico is experiencing a failed state and a security crisis, and called on citizens to generate pressure and demand an end to violence.

During the Annual Meeting of the Jesuit University System, the academics offered the Peace with Justice and Reconciliation panel, in which they lamented the murder of Fathers Javier Campos and Joaquín Mora, and the tourist guide Pedro Palma.

“When the State does not have territorial control and allows private armed groups to control it, we call that a failed State and for many years the colonies, neighborhoods and towns are being controlled by some large or small cartel and the State is absent, in many parts of Mexico have been gone for a long time, therefore the population is alone, abandoned, subject to the law of the strongest, we are subject to the law of kidnapping, extortion and murder because the federal and local governments do not they are interested in protecting us”, declared Juan Luis Hernández Avendaño, rector of the Ibero Torreón.

He stressed that the fact that the bodies of the priests have been taken “is a message that the drug trafficker can do whatever he wants, the owners feel, and we cannot continue to allow that.”

Alexander Paul Zatyrka Pacheco, rector of the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente (ITESO), specified that given the “poor response from all levels of government” and the “systematic denial of insecurity”, Mexicans must press: “ They throw the ball, it is evident that in the future these political groups will continue without acting. If there is not enough pressure from society we cannot wait for these actors, these politicians to become aware and start acting, it is up to us to help raise awareness.

Luis Alfonso González, rector of the Ibero León, warned that the murders “occurred within the framework of a dynamic of exacerbated violence that harms the life of our society on a daily basis, and highlights the ineffectiveness of the State’s security policy in all their levels.”

Francisco Morfín Otero, director of the Ayuuk Intercultural Higher Institute (ISIA), affirmed that in the indigenous communities of Oaxaca “the murders are not an isolated act, but a common denominator. It is terror, fear, isolation and death that have been established in various indigenous peoples of the country.

On behalf of all the Jesuit universities, Luis Arriaga Valenzuela, rector of the Ibero City of Mexico, demanded that the federal and local authorities fulfill their obligation to guarantee truth, justice and reparation.
