Residents of Altabrisa in Merida demonstrated on Saturday, January 14th, to defend a green area, which is presumably to be sold for the construction of a commercial complex.

Dozens of neighbors stood on 15th and 22nd street in the Altabrisa sector and blocked the street because they are defending a green area that they have been taking care of for 15 years.

According to the complainants, the municipal authorities want to sell the area to build a housing or commercial complex, exchanging the green area for the announced Tho park, but the neighbors refuse this alternative.

Four days ago, the complainants invited the neighbors to demonstrate at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday the 14th.

It is worth mentioning that the green area they are defending is of approximately 3 hectares, an area that has been preserved by the neighbors, who constantly clean the place, where several neighbors carry out sports activities.

The Merida City Hall made the announcement a few days ago, however, the residents of Calle 22 assured that they do not want a swap and stated that they will exhaust all legal resources to conserve the park which they have defended for 15 years.

It was reported that a neighborhood negotiation committee will meet with municipal authorities to try to reach an agreement regarding the fate of the green area.
