Mayor of Cuernavaca, Morelos, and former soccer-star, Cuauhtémoc Blanco Bravo, started a hunger strike yesterday in protest for the impeachment process approved by the Congress of Morelos against his office a day earlier.

Inside of Cuernavaca’s Cathedral Blanco Bravo began his hunger strike and assured the media that he is calm and relies fully on God. Also, he confirmed that his work team will support him throughout the hunger strike and complained that several political forces have plotted against him: “it feels as a coup d’ état”.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) has installed a Committee of magistrates to analyze the impeachment approved by the local Congress against Blanco Bravo. The Committee is chaired by Verónica Cuevas López, head of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), Helda Flores León and Manuel Díaz Carvajal.
