Together: We Are Strong! - In an unbelievably short seven days, 1,850+ Mexicans and extranjeros signed the Security Petition, thereby demonstrating strong unity and shared concern over this critical issue. Initiated by the Asociacion de Las Colonias de Todos Santos (ACTS), the petition is a call-for-action by the BCS government. Reinforcing the widely-held belief that something significant must be done to combat the current break-ins and criminal acts, the Security Petition will be formally presented to the Governor when he is in Todos Santos on Wednesday, December 12, 2012.

Last Friday, the Procurador General de Justicia del Estado met in Pescadero with residents who shared their impassioned frustration and unhappiness with the current situation. This meeting was held in response to the theft problems faced by cattle ranchers and the November 22 ACTS letter to the Governor in which the break-in issue was described in detail. Now, with the 1850+ signatures on the Security Petition, it is expected that the Governor and other state officials will continue to take seriously this formal request for resources. If you have suggestions, questions or concerns, please contact ACTSsafetycommittee [- at -] gmail.com.
