ANDAR said although all groups of society have the right to be heard, “give space to a single voice in an event like this not only shows a fair tendency in the conduct of the Senate that it treads the edges of the violation of the secular State and tin e negatively your work. The rights that these groups have hampered are rights won with great effort by very important sectors of Mexican society.”
