Legislators Find Alternate Ways to Get to Work During Environmental Alert

DÍA INTERNACIONAL DE LA MUJER

Amid civilian complaints, legislators from the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), National Action Party (PAN) and the Green Party opted to leave their fancy automobiles and use public transportation, bicycles and car shares to arrive at the legislative building in San Lázaro, to keep up with the third day of the environmental alert.

The legislators asked that authorities take on their responsibility regarding the grave problem of environmental contamination, and to leave aside the assignment of blame.

César Camacho, PRI coordinator, accompanied by a group of legislators, used Line 4 of the Collective Transportation System and received boos and catcalls from citizens.

“Hey legislator, use the Metro every day so that you can be with real people every day, we need trains in better conditions,” jeered one man.

This is not the time to place the blame, but to take on our responsibility in a collective manner.”

Confronted with the shouts and indifference that the crowd showed to the PRI politicians, a senior passenger called the politician by name. “Mr. César,” which the politician responded in a bothered tone “yes, I’m here, I hear you!”

Camacho recognized that it is very complicated to travel during rush hour on the Metro.

The PRI politician asked the megapolis’ officials to take on their responsibility, come to an agreement and stop looking to place the blame elsewhere.

“I think that this is not the time to place the blame, but to take on our responsibility in a collective manner, I think that is what megapolis officials have to talk about, definitely the Government of the Republic. Beyond our legislative responsibilities, there lies a responsibility to the people who live in this region of Mexico.”

The coordinator of the Green Party also used the Metro, and responding to the same catcalls, Jesús Sesma made a call to the Mexico City authorities to ask them to improve the public transportation services.

On Emiliano Zapata Street, in front of the Chamber of Deputies, some automobilists honked their horns and others shouted that the PAN was making traffic more difficult.

The PAN coordinator, Marko Cortes, opted for a bicycle although authorities are recommending that citizens avoid physical activity due to the environmental alert.

Jesús Zambrano, leader of the Chamber of Deputies, traveled in his own car but assured reporters that it is “well tuned”.
