Her family seeks justice where she can find it.

The director of the center where she studied, Lizbeth, has been dismissed after the demonstrations that have paralyzed the entrance road to the town and the school where she studied.

Alma Delia Ramos, the victim's sister, assured that the principal and teachers were aware of the harassment.

The State of Mexico Prosecutor's Office is already investigating to find the whereabouts of the aggressor and her parents.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has asked this Friday to strengthen the "cultural, moral and spiritual" values ​​of Mexico.

The video is heartbreaking.

Neither of the two girls is over 15 years old.

They are on the outskirts of the school where they studied and where Lizbeth, according to relatives, suffered


for a long time.

Around him, a lot of equally young children recording with their cell phones.

One of the girls is seen carrying a model of what appears to be an atom.

In the other she carries the mobile with which she records.

In front, two girls who had been left to hit each other hit each other in very unequal conditions.

Lizbeth's opponent, whose identity has not yet been revealed, has a stone or something similar in her right hand and with it she deals blow after blow to Lizbeth, who is barely able to defend herself from it.

Around him, a horde of boys and girls his own age laugh at each new blow, shouting “Hit harder!”

and “Give him one in the face!”

With that, Lizbeth is left at home grounded and recovering from her injuries.

The weekend before her death, he begins to feel bad.

“The most important thing is to strengthen cultural, moral and spiritual values, Mexico has a great reserve of values, and it is very important that families do not disintegrate and it is very important that we do not abandon our customs and traditions, not a misunderstood modernity: that our parents are older and have conservative ideas or are anachronistic, that now the good vibes are debauchery, excesses and clubs”, said the president of Mexico.

"Only by being good can we be happy, happiness is not money, designer clothes, cheap luxury, happiness is being good with yourself," López Obrador concluded.
