“We reject police mafia riots and blackmailing, which look for to
strengthen a completely corrupted system. Without police consent, major
crimes such as drug trafficking, human trafficking, car theft, and the use
of poor youth to commit crimes, wouldn’t take place”, stated today on the

continue operating their businesses”, said Del Caño.

fight against the "trigger-happy" police and human trafficking. To combat
the penetration of drug trafficking, with police support, in the

repressive apparatus of this state, that is at the service of the
exploiters, by organizations of the workers themselves on the path of
struggle for their own government. Down with Project X, and espionage and
infiltration of the people’s organizations! For the dissolution of all the
intelligence organs placed in order to spy on and infiltrate the people’s
