Through the Road Police, it is how the Government of Jalisco has tried to boycott the start of the mega-march called by the University of Guadalajara (UdeG) for Thursday, the authorities of the university denounced at a press conference.
The executive vice-chancellor of the UdeG, Héctor Raúl Solís Gadea, pointed out that although it was said that support would be provided to speed up the roads for the transit of citizens, the operations have been used to stop the buses that would transfer the students to the center of Guadalajara. Prepa 55, CUCEA and the University Center of Atequiza are the affected campuses, in addition to that, there are also reports that the same thing happened in Santa Anita, Tlajomulco.
The general secretary of the UdeG, Guillermo Gómez Mata, added that the cards have even been removed from the buses, preventing them from transporting the educational community, thus affecting 50% of the trucks that would leave these points, however, he added , “everyone is looking for alternatives, the possibility of arriving by their own means or even demonstrating in the places where they stayed”.
The foregoing, pointed out Gómez Mata, stands in the way of the constitutional right to free demonstration, which the authorities must also guarantee.
The educational authorities, among whom was also the coordinator of university services, José Alberto Castellanos Gutiérrez, lamented that these actions are the response to the discomfort that the mega-march generated for the authorities, because despite the fact that, probably, they did not can gather in a single point the more than 100 thousand people expected to attend the mobilization, the demonstration from the places where they are will have the same validity.
By last, Solís Gadea added that the Citizen Movement should not have that name if it chooses to repress every demonstration or protest that makes it uncomfortable.because it is precisely the movement of citizenship that generates changes in society.
