A group of about 80 people identifying themselves as members
of the "Collective Front of Anarchist Vegetarians" were
arrested Wednesday after a march through downtown Mexico
City, where they protested outside restaurants and
spray-painted slogans on a McDonald's outlet.

The 65 men and 15 women handed out anti-meat leaflets and
blocked traffic briefly before they were arrested, Mexico
City police told government news agency Notimex.

None of them resisted arrest, and they were taken to a
nearby police station while prosecutors decided whether to
press charges against them.

Earlier this year, community activists in Oaxaca City led a
series of protests against the planned opening of a
McDonald's restaurant in the 450-year-old colonial main
square there.
