Workers from the salt mines blocked the access road to the port on Monday November 27 for three hours….
LAS COLORADAS DE RÍO LAGARTOS – The protesters led by Arturo Castillo Dzul placed red blankets at each side of the road, along with banners demanding Governor Rolando Zapata Bello repair 20 kilometers of the entrance road because it is in bad condition.
The almost 50 protesters positioned themselves in the corner of the farm San Salvador blocking the passage of trailers, tourist buses and even the people of Las Coloradas.
Foreign tourists offered money to the complainants to let them leave the port, but the union’s leader told them it is a demonstration to pressure the government, so they would have to wait.
The trailers also delayed their entrance to the port and complained that they closed that road just in the morning. Also the construction workers that were working there had to walk about 10 kilometers to enter the port.
Castillo Dzul also said that the press coverage that his movement is receiving served to alert the mayor of Rio Lagartos, Juan Contreras Celis, about the situation and it is giving results because Mayor Contreras promised to speak with the governor if they stop blocking the road in exchange. But the movement leader said that they had many months to make arrangements and repair the road, and they did nothing.
The interviewee threatened to make another blockage today on Tuesday November 28 at the same time and in the same place if they do not give a quick positive response, because they are tired of being ignored by the government.
