Chelem inhabitants demand to stop threats by foreigners

Residents of the Chelem community demonstrated on the afternoon of December 21 to demand justice for people who were allegedly attacked by a group of foreigners who, they stated, threatened the inhabitants of this town.

During the protest, at least a hundred residents could be seen raising Mexican flags and banners with the faces of the people who have suffered these attacks.

The protesters walked through the streets of the Villamar and Arcoiris entrances shouting slogans of “Viva Mexico!”, “Mexico belongs to the Mexicans!”, Justice!”, among others.

It was indicated that the grievances against the residents of the port began approximately four months ago.

As explained, a man of foreign origin named D.B., and his wife were accused of attacking animals in this port, as well as inconveniencing their neighbors in a declared war that seemed to have no end until the individual was arrested and made available to the authorities.

Now, another group retaliated against the locals, since they have reported incidents from stones to attempted attacks with an electric stun gun by a woman.

The residents of Chelem assured that they have gone to the Prosecutor’s Office in Progreso on several occasions, but to date, they have not received a solution and they have even been told that they do not have time to deal with this type of situation.

According to the residents of Progreso, these accusations are not intended to generalize the entire foreign community based in this port, since many of the protesters are foreign too, and they maintain a good relationship with their employers. Given the above, they ask the authorities to please take into account their requests to achieve peace, because if they are not able to mediate with the troublesome foreigners, they fear that the attacks will continue and at a given moment affect even children or older adults.
