La Opinin, news, Posted: Jul 17, 2009

MEXICO CITY -- Mexicos most violent drug cartel, "La Familia," based in President Felipe Calderons home state of Michoacan, raised a "white flag" on Wednesday, calling for a dialogue with the Mexican government, a move unprecedented in Mexican history. A man claiming to be Servando Gmez Martnez, alias "La Tuta," the leader of the cartel, phoned into a cable TV program in the capital of Morelia on Wednesday. "We know that our work is frowned upon by society," he said. "We want peace and quiet, but this is never going to end ... we want to reach a consensus." The Mexican governments response was to send 5,500 more federal agents to the region, according to reports. "The state does not negotiate with criminals," said Secretary of the Interior Fernando Gomez Mont.
