A year ago, the tragedy of the collapse of a section of Line 12 of the metro occurred. Claudia Sheinbaum, Florencia Serranía and the president, López Obrador, have acted with indifference and opacity.
Since the tragedy of the collapse of a section of Line 12 of the metro occurred a year ago, in which 26 people died and more than 100 were injured, the head of the Government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, the then Director of the Metro, Florencia Serranía, and the Mexican President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, have acted with indifference and opacity.
None of the three went immediately the night of the incident. Sheinbaum made a brief appearance the next day, without visiting the victims, and without his government giving them direct and human attention.
AMLO put his “popularity” before the pain and loss of the victims, and with a “fuck it” he refused to go to ground zero of the collapse. He has never gone.
Nor did the then director of the Metro Florencia Serranía set foot there, who was exonerated from the collapse long before an investigation or expert opinion began. Serranía was, at the same time, the Director of Maintenance. “I decided to take that double position,” she said, like someone assuming to be simultaneously a surgeon and anesthesiologist in an open heart operation.
The Metro Union denounced that there were clear signs of lack of maintenance on that specific section of Line 12, and that it had reported anomalies before the disaster.
When I went to the place of the collapse on May 7, I collected testimonies from the neighbors, who affirmed that it was foreseeable due to the bad and evident conditions in which that section was found. When the train passed, the structure “thundered”, those who frequent the area every day told me.
“Look at that cruelty! This is not God’s thing, it’s irresponsible human beings,” a mechanic whose workshop is next to the section that collapsed told me.
A year later, neither the fatalities, nor their relatives, nor the injured, nor society know what happened. And Mrs. Sheinbaum has already determined that we will continue without knowing it for a long time, because the truth is not compatible with her aspirations to be the presidential candidate of the official National Regeneration Movement party, promoted to such an aspiration by AMLO himself.
In May 2021, neither AMLO nor Sheinbaum nor Serranía was in the best interest of giving deep explanations about what happened. The intermediate federal elections, the renewal of the 16 mayorships of Mexico City and the Local Congress were at the door.
