Carlos Plata, national advisor of the Mexican Alliance for the Organization of Carriers (Amotac, in Spanish), reported that the blockades were on the Mexico-Pachuca, Via Morelos in Ecatepec, Via López Portillo and Mexico-Querétaro highways, but were lifted last night due to the commitment of authorities to negotiate since Wednesday.
He reported that negotiations will be with federal authorities such as the Secretary of Communications and Transportation, police and Mobility of the Mexico state, among others, and they are hopeful that their demands be fulfilled.
Amotac´s members demand from the authorities in particular greater security in the face of gang assaults and protested against the high prices of gasoline and toll booths and the amounts that exist.
They denounced that every day they suffer robberies and several of their coworkers have been murdered, therefore they asked National Guard to protect them while they travel on the roads of each jurisdiction.
They also requested the Ministry of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation to change the license plates for late model cargo and tourism vehicles since they are registered, and to put an end to extortion by police and other authorities.
