"In recent days our brotherhood, through an invitation, got retailers of meat and tortilla put into effect the fall in the price of their products" , reads the messages.

We are a brotherhood made up of people who respect the Constitution, civil, but as we are denied our rights We respect." they wrote. In this group the authorities attributed a number of executions in Michoacan and other parts of the Republic.
