  • Chronicle: Protest “for racism” at Mexican consulate.
  • Group of Mexican nationals to demand respect from diplomatic mission.
  • The complainants claim to have been victims of abuse and mistreatment.

“Enough of such arrogance, abuse, discrimination and mistreatment towards our countrymen,” that is the motto with which this Friday, October 8, a group of angry Mexican nationals planned to protest peacefully in front of the consulate of their country based in the city ​​of Raleigh (North Carolina).

The plaintiffs who call themselves: “People’s protest against the Mexican consulate” claim that this movement was born with the idea of ​​demanding respect from its officials so that they stop being so arrogant with the users, who, in the end, are the ones who pay their attractive salaries.

“They are racist with their own people”

This is the flayer that activists have promoted on their social networks to invite the Mexican community to come forward to protest.

Bertha López, one of the organizers of this protest, assures that the employees of the said consulate are usually “arrogant”, “discriminatory” and even “racist”. It was precisely for this reason that they decided to summon the residents of that town and all citizens who are tired of such abuses.

His idea is to arrive at the diplomatic mission and stand in front of it with signs demanding respect. They made it clear that the attendees will do so peacefully and with the hope that one of their representatives will come out to face them and promise “favorable changes for all.”

The call for dissatisfied users to protest was made through their accounts on social networks, especially in Facebook. They even did a flayer and López has been the one who has shared the most times in order to get more support even from people from counties surrounding the consulate.

In addition to the mistreatment, they also denounce that users are denied documents for which they qualify, that the officials of the Department of Protection do not distribute the funds destined to help Mexican families with extreme needs and the worst part, that they are selling the appointments for procedures to the highest bidder.

Last Tuesday, López and some of his colleagues were summoned by the staff of the Mexican consulate in Raleigh to listen to their complaints and deal with the problems that afflict them and I suppose, also to try to prevent the protest they planned from continuing, but the latter they did not achieve.

On his Facebook page, López stressed that the meeting was directly with the consul, which lasted approximately two hours. In it, he explained each of his complaints with details and evidence, with true cases of abuse against people with disabilities and others who tried to get them out of the country with lies.

Although he considered the meeting as very pleasant and profitable, López stressed that the demonstration continues stronger than ever. “See you there this Friday,” he said, at the same time that he made it clear that they have no personal interests involved, much less that they seek to profit financially.

The organizers of the protest indicated that they do not belong to any established organization, but have been formed to defend the Mexican community in North Carolina from officials who operate arbitrarily and who even tolerate corruption with the sale of appointments.

There are certain requirements for those who wish to support this peaceful march, among them is to arrive sober, wear a white t-shirt and carry signs with messages alluding to the bad work that the consulate is doing in their city. “We have to do things right. Everything will be 100 percent peaceful ”.

The first publication that López made on his Facebook regarding this call, many people commented on it. “They are very despotic, like, if things were given for free,” said Lino Gómez. “I have been trying to get an appointment for two months and there is none,” declared Erandy Coria.

The organizers of the protest say that if after the meeting they held with their officials and the protest this Friday they do not see any improvement in service and customer service, they will take much more drastic measures to prevent them from continuing to get away with yours.

Among the most serious projects that activists could adopt later is a boycott of up to several days that completely paralyzes the work of consular employees, such as temporarily blocking the entry of Mexicans to the diplomatic mission.

They are in all their right to act

The good news is that whatever they do, as long as they respect the integrity of other people, behave in order and do not obstruct the flow of vehicles, people can freely make a protest without even asking anyone for permission. The Constitution of this country grants them this right.

Personally, I think that if the treatment they are receiving is really so bad, they had been late for a long time. It would be nothing new, by the way. Since the pandemic appeared, several consulates have invented “dating services” and that has become a tremendous business for many. And it is that those who have good contacts, fill the quotas quickly, but they charge for that.

The same thing happens in Georgia

Similar complaints also abound against the Consulate General of Honduras in Atlanta (Georgia). People complain that to get an appointment they have to pay a third party between $ 150 and $ 200 to get an appointment, otherwise it becomes impossible. It is unfortunate that they are doing that to their nationals.

Many civil servants forget that their diplomatic lifestyle and juicy salaries are literally due to those who are supposed to serve very well. But I know that sometimes the arrogance of believing themselves more “educated” than others makes them feel superior. Too bad of them, I hope they change one day. Thank you for reading my chronicle today in MundoHispánico. Until next time.

Kill and kidnap his wife to collect insurance

In the style of horror movies, a strong man kidnapped a weak woman and tortured her to death. But unlike what is seen in the cinema, in this particular case it was not about unknown characters among them, but about a newly married couple who even had a child in common.

That’s right, it has to do with an American subject who married an attractive woman of Colombian origin who was 20 years his junior. The marriage between Rexford Lynn Keel and Diana Alejandra Keel did not work out, as they had only been together for a couple of years when they began to have problems.

They would dispute the custody of their child in court

The irreparable differences between the couple reached the point that they planned to go to court to fight for legal custody of the little boy they had procreated together, but that moment never came. And they hadn’t even filed for divorce when suddenly Diana disappeared.

But just a few weeks before the mother disappeared without a trace, something extremely strange happened: they had put a millionaire life insurance. In short, if Diana died, they would give a million dollars to her beneficiary, who, oddly enough, was the same man she could no longer live with.
