 94 demonstrators were  arrested
 in an Anti-McDonalds protest last 16th
 October. Each protestor is being held
 under a bond of 14,000$.The Mexico City 
 Anti-McDonalds protest was held from  the
 Monumento a laRevoluciOn to Zocalo last 
 October 16th at 4 p.m. to denounce
 thetransnational companies which plunder 
 poor countries and trample over
 theirflora and fauna without respecting 
 anybody. This transnational company,
 acauser of great harm to humanity in social 
 and economic aspects, has lodgeda
 criminal complaint against the young people 
 arrested. The march wasrepressed by
 the Secretary of Public Security, in 
 other words, the State,resulting in 94
 protestors arrested in Cuauthemoc District, 
 Agency 57.They are held under the
 accusation of damaging Federal Property 
 and carryingexplosives, which were
 simply fireworks. Once arrested, the 
 State, skilledin the art of extortion, has
 posted a bond of 14,000$ for each 
 protestor,just for damaging a shade umbrella
 and a windowpane, as well as refusingtheir 
 rights to make a phone call or use
 the toilets.We denounce and reject the
 extortion suffered by our friends and
 comrades.We call on Social Organisations 
 and the general public to support
 thestruggle of those who are opposed to 
 the sale and destruction of theircountry
 and the whole world by transnational 
 assassins.Long live free expression: today
 us, tomorrow who knows.The bank account

Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number -
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you -
Ye are many - they are few.
