Motorcyclists cut the Buenos Aires – La Plata highway in demand for Justice after the crime of delivery
Workers from different delivery applications carried out a total cutoff on the Buenos Aires-La Plata highway this Monday afternoon to demand greater security measures after the crime of Danilo Mercieri (20), who was murdered on Saturday afternoon by criminals that his motorcycle was stolen in the Buenos Aires town of Bernal, Quilmes district.
The cut was made, after 3:00 p.m. on Monday, at kilometer 16 of the highway and caused serious traffic delays on both hands. The cars, noticing that the three lanes were blocked by motorcycles, circulated on the shoulder.
The protest began this morning, in front of the Quilmes Departmental Headquarters, then continued in the Bernal Triangle and, finally, settled on the highway.
“We are here for Danilo because the Police, instead of protecting you, come and take money from us. We feel unsafe. You live in fear that they will take your motorcycle and cut your job. Where they have to be, they are not. There are areas where we cannot take orders because it is no man’s land”, said one of the motorcyclists who participated in the cut. “We want Mayra (Mendoza, the mayor of Quilmes) to come and explain why the Police are only in the center and not in the most uninhabited areas,” he demanded in dialogue with TN.

While another of his colleagues said that this claim is not new, but has been going on for three years. “We met with the Secretary of Security of the Province and he just patted us on the back. We spoke in the middle of a pandemic, that we were afraid that a colleague would be killed. That’s it, now they killed a 20-year-old partner. The situation changed for the worse, ”he lamented.

In addition, he complained that the motorcycles kidnapped by the Police at traffic controls “are for minor offenses, since none have an arrest warrant.” And he added: “We made them a map of the areas with the most crime and we even put GPS on the motorcycles to recover them when they are stolen. When the police recover them, no one goes to jail.”
All those present at the protest want the Quilmes mayor to apologize to the family personally and not through social networks, as she did this Sunday.
