Mexican Cartel Killings Over Avocados Trades

Featured Posts

Mexican authorities found a total of 19 bodies scattered across the city of Uruapan in Mexico's Michoacán state on Thursday morning.

Some of the bodies were hanging by the neck, while others were dismembered.

The killings appear to be part of a scare tactic by the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) aimed at their rivals, Michoacán's attorney general said.

Traditionally Mexican cartel violence has been about the drugs trade. But experts say the fight could also be over the production and distribution of avocados, dubbed "green gold" in Mexico.

Officials found nine bodies hanging from a bridge in Uruapan, in the western Michoacán state, around 5:30 a.m. Thursday local time, Mexico News Daily reported, citing Michoacán Attorney General Adrián López Solís.

While this kind of cartel-linked violence in Mexico has historically been related to the drugs trade, some experts have pointed to the trend of criminal gangs increasingly fighting for control of the avocado trade as well.

They were displayed next to a banner that showing the initials of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), a group based in the nearby Jalisco state. The banner contained a threat to their rivals.

"We want to make clear that whoever helps La Chatarra, Ronal, Ratón, Moto, Mono Verde, Maniaco or Filos will end up like this," the message said, according to Mexico News Daily.

"Kind people, go on with your routine. Be patriotic, and kill a Viagra," it continued, referring to the CJNG's rival gang in Michoacán, named Los Viagras.

As the global demand for avocados grows, so too has the fight over the fruit's production and distribution. Mexico produces almost half of the world's avocados, and Michoacán is the country's top producer. The avocado industry is worth $1.5 billion in Michoacán alone, the International Crisis Group reported in June. CJNG has also taken part in it.

The more you know, we actually put money into Cartels pockets all these times, and legally too. I feel so conflicted. :triggered:

Jesus, all this violence over avocados from Mexico? Maybe Trump was right about being more stringent with border security.

Who knew drug dealers would fight over avocados. Hopefully drugs disappear and this whole world goes vegan, and all we'll ever fight for would be bananas and strawberries ! 

The crowds are gone. And it's time to wash out the blonde.

i’ll never understand how some human beings think it’s ever okay to hurt another, especially with the intelligence we supposedly have. and that too over AVOCADOS, literally a gift from nature to us, that grows on trees for free. that’s 19 lives lost, 19 families devastated and possibly their only breadwinners lost, over AVOCADOS???

Trump is an idiot who doesn’t know the first thing about border security. If he did then he wouldn’t want to build a money sucking, ineffective wall.

Please, build the wall so we Mexicans will feel confident that your murderous psychopaths who shoot everyone in the United States will not come here. We mexicans have enough problems and violence here in Mexico.
