Dr. Mireles in his own words

Recently the spokesman for Michoacan’s Autodefensas, Dr. Jose Juan Mireles Valverde, spoke to a gathering of people in Caleta de Campos. The speech is important on a number of levels; chief among them is that this is actually Dr. Mireles speaking in his own words. Mexican and English language media have routinely distorted Mirele’s words and persona since the autodefensas movement began.

A recent guest on the podcast, Danny Benevides, of Traces of Reality, translated the entire speech into English. If you are not familiar with Dr. Mireles, or the autodefensas, I would urge you to check our in-depth conversation and then read the speech in its entirety.
