Pemex retirees hold a sit-in in Mérida to demand medical services

A group of Pemex retirees and pensioners, led by Mr. Servio Rosado Aparicio, blocked North 60th Street at Colón Avenue, to demand medical services.

Mr. Rosado Aparicio, leader of the so-called “Peninsular Oil Group Fighting for Our Health” explained that they stood in that place because, until yesterday afternoon, the office of the Coordinator of Medical Services of the Mac Hospital was located on that street, which he said, was opened at the time under pressure from the same people.

“Yesterday afternoon it closed permanently because Pemex has not paid. They told us that there is no budget because the money has been allocated for the campaigns, but what do we care about the campaigns? The sick do not stop, they do not rest,” he noted.

The lawsuits were also against the aforementioned clinic, since, they say, the service is of poor quality and the problem of the lack of specialist doctors that they have been demanding for years persists. “Now we don’t even have general doctors,” she commented.

He said that before they began their demonstration, a person from the Federal Ministry of the Interior arrived who identified himself as José Tun, who indicated that he would seek a response to their demands, but until 11 in the morning he had not returned to the place.

The police implemented a traffic operation in the area, and the protesters decided to stay there until there was a favorable solution for them.

Around 11:20 in the morning, a person they call “Dr. César” came out and told them that they had already called him and reached an agreement. However, the protesters entered the offices where they were going to have a meeting with people from the federation to establish these agreements.
