On the second day of demonstrations in Merida by workers of the Federal Judicial Branch (PJF) over the possible disappearance of 13 of the 14 trusts proposed in the Legislative Branch, which would threaten their autonomy, and now, the demands have intensified with a march through the streets surrounding the headquarters.

They warned that they will continue with the movements until Tuesday, October 24th, if a negotiation is not reached.

Carlos Osvaldo Canto Ancona, secretary general of Section 37 of the Federal Judicial Branch Workers Union (STPJGF), informed that as of yesterday they had not received a response from the federal authority, nor were they aware of a dialogue table to begin negotiations with their petitions.

He recalled that most of their demands referred to the question of the extinction of the trusts as well as the imminent reduction of the budget. Given the lack of response, the workers held a march that covered part of Itzaes Avenue to the Glorieta de Miguel Hidalgo, to later return to the PJF headquarters.

“These demonstrations are intended to guarantee that the Judicial Power continues to be independent and that the incumbent ministers can continue issuing their resolutions by the Law,” he noted.

He indicated that all the personnel of the four offices operated by the PJF gathered at the headquarters building, where they have even set up tents, as they assured that they will continue with these protests until next Tuesday to defend judicial independence and the division of powers.

He specified that between 600 and 650 people are participating in the marches; therefore, there is a stoppage of activities in the four headquarters, although urgent matters are being attended to.

“At the moment we have not had an answer, but on Tuesday the national secretary, Gilberto González Pimentel, is going to participate in the open parliament in the Chamber of Deputies to defend the benefits in the budget and from there make decisions later on,” said the union leader.

He added that much will depend on the openness of the deputies in the open parliament, for which he reiterated that decisions will be made at a national level and will be replicated in all the states where there are demonstrations.

As we reported yesterday, more than 600 workers of the PJF joined a work stoppage of activities in Merida in its four buildings.
