The arrest and incarceration of Mexicali Resiste spokesman, has elicited several reactions all around the social media, due to an alleged “political imprisonment” of sorts, this version has been denied by State’s Government Secretary Francisco Rueda, but the Senate candidate and BC leader of MORENA, Jaime Bonilla deems the case “political repression”.

 

 

 

 

 

He was arrested for attempted murder last Thursday, a few weeks ago he tried to run over police officers, during a riot near the Constellation Brands brewing plant construction site, but now the next stage is May 8th court gearing, Tuesday morning, where Leon Fierro might go free or face trial from jail, all depends on Tuesday’s audience outcome.

“The fight is for the Water and Constellation Brands”, said Jose Fierro, who demonstrated with about twenty people  at Mexicali Civic Center, he said his son was a “political  prisoner” while Bonilla accepted sympathizing with Mexicali Resiste but denied giving them any financial support. State Attorney officials have also denied any political intentions in Mr. Fierro’s arrest and trial.

La detención y encarcelamiento del vocero de Mexicali Resiste ha provocado prtotestas, comentarios y opiniones discordantes sobre la naturaleza política de su caso, por un lado, el candidato de Morena al Senado, Jaime Bonilla, lo considera represión política y el Secretario de Gobierno del Estado, Francisco Rueda lo niega y dice que no hay trasfondo político en la detención del activista.

 

 

 

 

LA siguiente etapa se decidirá este martes 8 de  Mayo en la Audiencia de vinculación a proceso, donde León Fierro podría salir libre o enfrentar proceso desde la cárcel, dependiendo del resultado de esta audiencia.

“La lucha es por el problema del agua y Constellation Brands”, dijo José Fierro, padre del detenido quien protestó en el edificio de Gobierno de Mexicali porque considera a su hijo un preso político, junto con dos o tres decenas de personas que gritaron consignas contra la cervecera, mientras que Bonilla dijo simpatizar con Mexicali Resiste y negó estarlos financiando.[:]
