“Layda Sansores out!”: new protest in Campeche in support of police officers

On Saturday, April 13, a new demonstration was held in Campeche in favor of state police officers and against Governor Layda Sansores.

A new demonstration was registered this Saturday in Campeche to support state police, who demand the dismissal of the head of Security, Marcela Muñoz Martínez, and the rejection of the decisions of Governor Layda Sansores.

“Out with Layda, Out with Layda!” was one of the main slogans chanted this Saturday afternoon in the demonstration that involved thousands of people.

In addition, better working conditions are demanded for the public security agents, who have been holding a peaceful protest since mid-March.

Civil associations placed several modules in the march area to collect signatures and request the impeachment of the head of State Security.

On April 9, Governor Layda Sansores asserted that Campeche is a “very quiet and peaceful state”, despite the protests by 1,200 police officers, which has been going on for more than one month now.

“My state is very calm, it’s curious, I think that without police it’s calmer, there’s less crime,” she told reporters after President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s morning conference.

Since mid-March, Campeche has been experiencing a protest by state police, who demand the dismissal of the Secretary of Security, Marcela Muñoz, after a failed operation.

The above has caused citizens to join the police officers in their protests, taking to the streets of the state capital.

These unprecedented protests have broken out in Campeche after a failed transfer of inmates to the Kobén prison, in which it was reported that several police officers were injured, in addition to female officers being victims of sexual abuse.

As a result of this uniformed protest, Governor Layda Sansores announced the dismissal of nine police officers belonging to the protesters, whom she described as “scoundrels” and “corrupt.”

A police officer from Campeche, who requested anonymity, stated in an interview with Joaquín López-Dóriga on Radio Formula, that he made it clear that they will remain firm in their protest, despite the threats from the state governor Layda Sansores.
