They generalized that Mexicans, especially the inhabitants of Mexico City, feel outraged and affected by the withdrawal of what they called their “historical heritage” on the pretext of repairing it.

The petition has been signed by 13,843 people so far and the cap is expected to be 15,000.
Some personalities such as former president Felipe Calderón, as well as his wife, Margarita Zavala, have shared the petition published in Change.org on their social networks.
