Mexico is starting the year with an unprecedented level of violence rocking the streets of both large and small towns across the country. While Mexican media and government officials address some of the violence, many cases go unspoken, and the images showing the reality are either censored or buried. Due to this, we have dedicated a member of our team to track the violence and create an ongoing report that will be updated when more comes in.
Attached you will find various acts of violence (almost all cartel-related) that have taken place in Mexico since February 1, 2023. The majority of these incidents have yet to be reported by Mexican media. Images attached to this monthly report will contain photos and videos that depict death. Extreme viewer discretion is advised.
