The restoration of the monuments to Justo Sierra and Felipe Carrillo Puerto, which were vandalized during the International Women’s Day march, continues after a week that the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) has resumed work.

Both monuments, along with the Montejo and the Homeland monuments and other public buildings, have been the target of graffiti during several demonstrations, the last one on March 24.

After the interventions in 2023, the restoration of both monuments began in January of this year.

On March 8th, the structures were painted again, which led to the work being suspended.

Both the statue of Justo Sierra, which is located at the confluence of Paseo de Montejo with Pérez Ponce, and that of Carrillo Puerto, on Paseo de Montejo with Calle 37, are under restoration.

In the second week of April, the authorities placed wooden boards around the monuments to carry out the restoration works.

According to Anna Goycoolea Artis, director of the INAH, at the end of the International Women’s Day march, the federal agency works together with the City Council and the State government on the restoration.

Both monuments are walled up and have scaffolding around them, as well as a kind of shade mesh. Although some progress can be seen, the signs of vandalism are still evident.
