As of this morning the Autopista Siglo XXI was blocked around km 109 between Uruapan and Nueva Italia by people of Pueblos Unidos.

Rob, can you offer any insight about why the Pueblos Unidos residents are doing this? It also happened several weeks ago, and some friends were stuck and had to stay overnight. The story I heard was that the people were trying to force the local authorities to investigate a crime, a murder, if I remember right.

Thanks to Michoacán's Gobernador Aureoles, organized criminals essentially have free reign in Michoacán. Los Pueblos Unidos are blocking the road to demand the return of a kidnapped member of their group. But there is a lot more going on than what meets the eye, and Tierra Caliente is currently a war zone with at least two different conflicts going on. No one trusts the state authorities, and the lack of action by federal authorities is only contributing to the region's instability.

This matter would've been cleared up years ago if former Presidente Peña Nieto hadn't sent federal troops and police to stop the autodefensas of the heroic Dr. Mireles at Apatzingán who were doing an excellent job of cleaning up the state, doing what the state and federal authorities were apparently unwilling to do, and proving that the interests of the PRI were also the interests of the cartel leaders holed up in Apatzingán.
