Thousands protest against Layda Sansores and the police command in Campeche

More than three thousand people from civil society, religious congregations, and associations, as well as from different neighborhoods of the state capital, political parties, and families of police officers from 12 municipalities gathered at the monumental flagpole on Campeche’s boardwalk to carry out a peaceful protest and demand the dismissal of the Secretary of Public Security, Marcela Muñoz Martínez, as well as her police commanders.

This situation arose on Saturday, March 16, when police officers stood up in protest due to the result of the operation carried out in the San Francisco Kobén penitentiary center that left 52 injured people, 37 injured agents, and 25 inmates.

State government authorities have unsuccessfully tried 6 times to reach an agreement with the state authorities; however, this has not been possible. At first, they demanded the dismissal of the director of the state police, Antonio Saradan Santiago Solís, but when they did not obtain a favorable response, the police officers demanded the resignation of Marcela Muñoz and her cabinet from the police institution.

It took 4 days for the governor to say something, and she answered that Marcela Muñoz Martínez remains as head of the institution.

The police officers and the mothers of the agents who called the march carried banners announcing “The police officers do have mothers and here we are.”

During their tour, the majority were dressed in white, shouting all at once “Marcela, Campeche doesn’t want you,” as well as “Layda Get Out, you don’t know how to govern.”

It was 7 PM, when the attendees began to take out their cell phones to turn on the lights, sing the Campechano anthem, and finally, if the state government did not respond to the petition, the marches would continue and with more people who would join the cause.
