Maria de los Angeles Eusebio, 55, a retired anthropologist, is one of the local residents who have camped out for the last week to prevent construction machinery from going through. Equipped with tents, coffee “and lots and lots of blankets,” residents are staying day and night, through wind, rain and cold, to ensure the remains of their ancestors’ city aren’t destroyed.
“We don’t want them to just bury this and run the highway over the top of it,” said Eusebio. “We want them to return the artifacts, so we can display them in a museum for the community.”
