Mexicans Protest Land Evictions and State Violence


Social and rural organizations against Mexico’s policies of eviction, militarization, and criminalization of community police marched in Mexico City. The march was originally called by San Francisco Xochicuautla commune members (comuneros) to express their opposition to the national government’s decision to destroy 37 hectares of forest and indigenous communities’ homes. Residents of Xochicuautla denounced that the land eviction benefits real estate company Grupo Higa, and other properties negotiated by members of the government. However, other groups joined the mobilization, protesting the murder of a 12 year old child from Michoacan state, and the arrest of self defense leader Cemei Verdia Zepeda.
