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
la RevoluciOn to Zocalo last October 16th at 4 p.m. to denounce the
transnational companies which plunder poor countries and trample over
their flora and fauna without respecting anybody. This transnational
company, a causer of great harm to humanity in social and economic
aspects, has lodged a criminal complaint against the young people
arrested. The march was repressed 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
carrying explosives, which were simply fireworks. Once arrested, the
State, skilled in 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 refusing their 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 the struggle of those who are opposed to the sale and
destruction of their country and the whole world by transnational

Long live free expression: today us, tomorrow who knows.
