Hell in Mexico

Hell in Mexico

On the one hand Mexico is a paradise for tourists from all over the world, on the other it is the kingdom of narcos. These are the two faces of this country, where power is guaranteed by killing and the war between drug gangs is recording a remarkable increase in deaths.

So much so that many talk about “necromancy”, of a state ruled over deaths. But there are also those who won’t give in to the violence of gangs, like the inhabitans of  the village of Rincon De Chautla, that is constantly threatened by Los Ardillos.

Here women and children are forced to carry a rifle to defend themselves. Violence calls violence. And now Mexico is a heaven turning into hell.
