Resignation from Reyes Baeza demanded

Around 50 people gathered outside the State Government’s Representation Office

Around 50 people, headed by the PRD Federal State Representative Lizbeth Garcia Coronado, demanded the resignation of Chihuahua Governor’s, Jose Reyes Baeza Terrazas.

During a protest in front of the building of the Government of Chihuahua Representation in Mexico City, after marching from the Angel de la Independencia Monument, the state representative and the former federal legislator Octavio Martinez filed a request in which they ask Baeza for his resignation as a result of the 15 teenager’s massacre and for the lack of security experienced in Juarez City.

“They were healthy teens, sons of workers, it is urgent that the Governor finds a solution to the situation in Juarez City, and if he can’t, let him resign, this is what we are asking”, emphasized Garcia Coronado.

In the delivered document, they also requested the revocation of powers in Juarez City and the solving of such massacre.

Jose Lopez Villegas, Chihuahua’s Representative in Mexico City received the protesters, to whom he assured that they would have information about these issues sometime this week.

The protesters placed two coffins and a dozen crosses in front of said representation as a result of the teens’ deaths.

Furthermore, the 21 year old legislator stated that as a young person she worries about the degree of violence that exists in Juarez City.

“We do not want a society like this, we want that our youth enjoys safety; it is no longer our women getting killed it is our youth getting killed. If the Governor cannot handles his position, then let him resign”, she added.
