The protest comes after Governor Enrique Alfaro asked the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) to attract the alleged enforced disappearances at the hands of Jalisco policemen, against more than twenty young people who protested last weekend over the case of Giovanni Lopez.
Alfaro’s government has been criticized for his reaction to the protests that sparked Giovanni’s death, allegedly at the hands of municipal police officers in Ixtlahuacán de los Quinces.

On the case, Alfaro broke out on Monday from the acts that may have committed such municipal elements and noted that it will seek no impunity in the case.
As for the arbitrary arrests for jalisco police officers during protests over Giovanni’s death, he said that he did not give the order to repress.
