Tensions flared on Wednesday, August 30th, in a neighborhood in the north of Mérida when residents of Francisco de Montejo seized a CFE (Federal Electricity Commission) truck as a form of protest to have their power service restored.

The incident took place on the streets 45-B and 43, between 60 and 58, in the mentioned neighborhood when residents requested the assistance of the state-owned company to address a power outage report.

According to the report, the residents had been without electricity since 11:00 AM, prompting a team from the CFE to come and perform repairs.

The residents’ satisfaction was short-lived as they reported that the power went out again shortly after the repair was made.

Despite filing reports throughout the day, it wasn’t until late at night that two CFE trucks returned to make the necessary repairs. However, the residents were already agitated, and they decided to retain the vehicles until the issue was resolved.

In response to the situation, the presence of officers from the Public Security Secretariat (SSP) was required, and they took note of the events.

It’s worth mentioning that the protesters expressed their anger because, due to the lack of electricity, several people had their food spoil, others claimed damage to their appliances, and additional expenses were incurred as students had to leave their homes to find places with electricity and internet access to complete their schoolwork.

While it’s said that the residents seized two CFE trucks as a form of pressure to have their power service restored, it wasn’t until around 1:00 AM on Thursday that the power connection was restored when three more CFE vehicles and a bucket truck arrived to replace several parts.
