climate of insecurity
This has created a climate of insecurity in the neighborhood that has led to robberies, destruction, intimidation and the episode that occurred last Tuesday.
For quite some time we have been denouncing this situation, with two meetings included with Mayor Gabriel Cruz and several members of the government team of the Huelva City Council, being able to show them first-hand the situation in that area. however, the situation, far from improving, has worsened.
We fear that this difficult situation could lead to violent reactions and situations in which people decide to take justice into their own hands, something that we hope will never happen, given that our people have always set a great example of responsibility.
For all these reasons, we demand that the Huelva City Council, those who hold the ownership of these blocks and all the competent entities and bodies, be aware of the desperation of the neighborhood and commit themselves, once and for all, to providing a definitive solution. to the situation that the neighbors of El Higueral have been suffering for some time.
