On 21 April 2014, a march was held in San Luis Acatlán to support the nomination of the four new coordinators of the Regional Coordinator of Communal Authorities (CRAC) and to reject Eliseo Villar Castillo, the former coordinator who has now been deposed.
The march made a call for the rescue of the communal justice system and security for the Communal Police. Furthermore, it indicated to the federal and state governments that the justice system is on the side of the people and not for sale or conditioned by a budget. “We tell the state government that we will not accept the million pesos on offer, and now it will be the people who will maintain the movement, as before. We prefer this setup to having a conditioned budget and to have to keep accounts.”
In the march participated some 3500 residents of at least 60 communities which adhere to the CRAC.
