translated from Spanish: Fishermen today protest in Mexico City

Mexico City.- Today, fishermen and fishing entrepreneurs from all over the country will demonstrate in the Zocalo of Mexico City to be heard by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and seek a solution to the price of marine diesel. The Sinaloa contingent is made up of 500 fishermen from Mazatlan. Eight buses left, five with fishermen and three with women working in fishing-related activities.

The president of the Union of Shipowners of the Pacific Littoral, Jesús Omar Lizárraga Manjarrez, stressed that the request specification they carry is very broad, but the priority is energy. There is despair and uncertainty in the fishing sector and this forced them to go to Mexico City to demonstrate. They can’t start the next season, which is six weeks away from starting, without being sure it’s going to happen with the price of fuel. He added that at the moment, with the price making the activity inoperable, the leader of the shipowners abounded. In the Mazatlan contingent goes the fisherman Javier Lizárraga, who stressed that they go for the defense of the work and well-being of the family. In turn, Isabel Guzmán, who is a single mother and has always worked in the activity linked to fishing, emphasized «if they close the door to work, the children will suffer», so they add to this fight in Mexico City and hope to return with favorable response.A. utority
