BreakingNews @en di

The public protests in Mexico against the increased fuel costs do not stop, the national and international press reports of 22 demonstrations, such as roadblocks, assaults and looting against several service stations, assaults, even armed, against the governments palaces state. Fortunately there have been only few clashes with security forces, no deaths or injuries, only 10 arrests. Meanwhile, in the federal capital there is a confrontation between the various political forces: the opposition would want to artificially lower the price of fuel or at least lower the federal taxes to bring down the price, while members of the majority and of the most respected economic institutes of Mexico recall that the fuel taxes are already close to the minimum allowed and that the rise in prices is due to the general rise in price of petrol.
