Mexico City - fight against fare hike continues

Informational Brigade in Metro Chabacano.: "The outrage continues. Tú Mandas  held informational meetings at different stations and users continue to demonstrate their anger and their desire to participate. At Chabacano Yesterday, hundreds of users gathered in the Assembly Initiative Fact Tú Mandas to express its anger at a government pretending to consult the public, but in fact betrays."

Say No to Fare Increase. Government must respect the will of the people.

Córdoba: represión a protesta contra nuevo aumento del boleto

ANRed: "Nuevamente la policía de la provincia de Cordoba reprimió a manifestantes que marchaban en repudio a un nuevo intento de aumento del boleto de transporte a 5,30 pesos y por la no imputación a los militantes detenidos durante la represión de la semana pasada en la localidad de Malvinas Argentinas. Fue cuando se desconcentraban frente a la Casa Radical. Hasta el momento están confirmados dos detenidos, de los cuáles se desconoce a qué dependencias fueron trasladados, y varios herisos con balas de goma / AMPLIAREMOS - Informe y audio: Radio Voces 87.7 / Imágenes: Mucho Palo Noticias."

Little hope that 'El Chapo' capture will disrupt drug supply flooding the US "The capture in Mexico of Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman, a reputed drug kingpin, won't stanch the huge flow of illegal drugs into the US, analysts say. Chicago, a distribution hub for the Sinaloa cartel, is likely to remain so, they add."
Regardless of what you think about drugs and who benefits, one thing is certain. If  there is no demand for a product there will be no supply.

The same is true for oil. You can try to stop the supply, or you can stop the demand. Which do you think will work? The #posmesalto movement is one way to reduce demand for oil. It could lead to a movement for free public transport, such as in Brazil.
