After completing 31 days of a hunger strike (the final five without consuming liquids), the coordinator of the Communal Police of Olinalá, Guerrero, Nestora Salgado García, suspended this form of protest after the Guerrero state government committed himself to promoting her release and the transfer of two other communal police officers who are imprisoned in a federal prison.

She has called on Gonzalo Molina Gonzalez, a promoter from the Regional Coordination of Communal Authorities-Communal Police (CRAC-PC), one of these two prisoners, who has been held for more than a year and 7 months, to suspend his hunger strike which he had undertaken in solidarity with her on 14 May for health reasons.
