The Mexican government has been working for years trying to dismantle these cartels. Zetas, one of the countries biggest drug cartels is facing an opposition from an unlikely activist – Anonymous, the online hactivist group.

According to a report by CNET, Anonymous have threatened Zeta over the supposed kidnapping of one of their members. Anonymous have stated in a Spanish YouTube video, “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. We demand his release. We want the Army and the Navy to know that we are fed up with the criminal group Zetas, who have concentrated on kidnapping, stealing and blackmailing in different ways For the time being, we won´t post photos or the names … of the taxi drivers, the journalists or the newspapers nor of the police officers, but if needed, we will publish them including their addresses, to see if by doing so the government will arrest them.”

The report also goes on to state that in the video the hacker group also claims to expose those involved in the cartel who include the police, journalist as well as taxi drivers. They say that they cannot defend themselves with a weapon, but if they can do this with their cars, houses, bars, brothels, and everything else in their (Zetas') possession. Anonymous proclaims, “It won't be difficult. We all know who they are and where they are.”
