Indigenous authorities announced a change in strategy and reorganization of the fight to demand the resignation of Attorney General Consuelo Porras.
The authorities of the ancestral and 48 Cantons of Totonicapán report that they will suspend some blocking points throughout the country for a reorganization of the actions they will promote to continue demanding the resignation of Attorney General Consuelo Porras.
During the demonstrations they also demanded the resignation of the Public Ministry (MP) head of the Special Prosecutor’s Office against Impunity (FECI), Rafael Curruchiche; of the prosecutor Cinthia Monterroso, and of the judge Fredy Orellana, whom they accused of being the architects of a judicial coup d’état and the attack on democracy in Guatemala.
In a press conference, the ancestral authorities and the 48 Cantons of Totonicapán reported that the blocking actions will be temporarily suspended, but this does not mean that they will not continue with other activities to demand the resignation of “the planners in the coup.”
“The resistance continues,” said Luis Pacheco, president of the 48 Cantons of Totonicapán, and indicated that “this does not mean we have stopped.”
“Here we are not saying that the demonstrations are suspended. We are saying that we will go to the Assemblies, to reorganize the struggle. The demonstrations will not stop,” he said.
They also explained that their intention was to prevent it from falling into a “malicious confrontation”, a fact that was highlighted at various points and that was “used” against the resistance of the people who demanded the departure of Porras from in MP. .
Likewise, they explained that the blockade of the Cuatro Caminos, an Inter-American route, was temporary and that they would propose new strategies, which would be dictated by the bases set by the assemblies held in each community.
