After organizing this march that is when the threats began according to Ishalaa. In the video message he mentioned that followers of Fernando Castro Tentri (PRI) had threatened him in person and by phone.
"It’s my fault for living in this country," he added, mentioning also that he did not believe in the justice system and therefore had not made the appropriate report. To Ishalaa, the PRI party was chosen for drug trafficking and organized crime and argued that despite what happened, he will continue to fight for his ideals, to ensure that all citizens could enjoy the same rights equally.
