Mazatlan street vendors return to Mercado area and are forcibly removed by police

The semi-fixed merchants were replaced by Aquiles Serdán Street, in the first square of the city, this Wednesday.

They use public force against street vendors, 4 are arrested

Far from reaching an agreement and solving the problem that has arisen through the relocation of the merchants in the downtown area, near the Municipal Market “José María Pino Suárez”, tensions escalated when several vendors were submitted and detained by elements of the Municipal Public Security Secretariat.

The operation to remove the sellers of fixed and semi-fixed positions was led by the Secretary of the City Council, José de Jesús Flores Segura, and so far neither he nor the head of the SSPyTM, Federico Rivas, have informed the reason for the arrest and How many people arrested.

For his part, Arturo Raúl Castillo Morales, the general secretary of the Union of Fixed and Semifix Workers, said that there were four merchants who were arrested with the use of violence because when they were submitted, they were beaten and taken by the neck by some municipal elements.

Likewise, Alejandro Bernal Reyes, leader of the board of directors of the 300 established tenants of the “Pino Suárez” market, said that the actions of Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres and his officials represent the opposite of what they proclaim with the Fourth Transformation of Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

“The chemist does not want to talk to society, he is doing with the tenants of the market what he did with the street vendors, he never created the conditions to remove them, to relocate them, so how does he want the merchant to live, if he does not Do you want to reach dialogue and treat things according to the law? ”

Shortly after it was said that the detainees were released, although they were taken photos in the SSPyTM.
