Ejido escorted to remove protest banner by angry Chiquilá residents

Chiquilá, Q.R. — Personnel from the State Attorney General’s Office accompanied the President of the Chiquilá Ejidal Commissariat to remove a protest sign that was hanging on the tourist centre.

Ignacio Cáceres Correa was escorted by police while he removed the banner that was left by angry residents earlier this week.

On Sunday, residents made banners to display their disapproval after learning that Cáceres Correa intended to sell the public spaces for tourist kiosk use. A large group of area residents protested against the possible selling of common areas of Chiquilá, saying that would leave them without recreation spaces.

Residents say the land he intends to sell has been previously donated to Chiquilá which is currently used as a park and tourist inn.
