According to Talking Points, a video by a member of Anonymous Veracruz, Mexico, has named and shamed Los Zetas, one of the most powerful drug cartels in the country, of kidnapping an unnamed male Anonymous member and holding him hostage.
Anonymous has threatened to release information about the cartel if he isnt released.
“You made a huge mistake by taking one of us. Release him. And if anything happens to him, you will always remember this upcoming November 5th,” the address in the video says.
The Anonymous member was kidnapped from Veracruz, Mexico while he was taking part in Paperstorm, which encouraged members to take to the streets of their cities with paper flyers.
The message accuses taxi drivers, journalists, newspapers and cops of being the “servants” of the cartel and threatens to expose them, publishing identifying information about them, including names, photographs and addresses…”to see if by doing so the government will arrest them.”
If it does this, then Los Zetas associates and civil servants could bumped off by a rival drug cartel, such as the Sinola. Sinola is the world’s leading trafficker of South American cocaine and no relation to Spinola who is the world’s leading traffic of whisky stolen from the editor’s drawer.
The Mexican government has been unable to stop the drugs cartels operating in its country. This is partly because the various factions own politicans and the cops. This has enabled them to kidnap whoever they like and carry out mass killings without anyone stopping them.
