Mexico City: Barricade at CCH Vallejo in solidarity with prisoners & for a Black June

On May 11, 25 encapuchadxs (hooded ones) blocked the avenue 100 meters away from the entrance of the College of Science and Humanities in Vallejo. This street agitation came as a response to the calls for a Black June (boycott of the upcoming general elections in June) and as a way to honor the anti-authoritarian compañeros Fernando Bárcenas, Miguel Betanzos, Luis Sotelo and Abraham Cortés who are currently imprisoned in the dungeons of the Mexican state.

The barricade lasted for more than an hour during which police from the Federal District approached several times. Eventually the encapuchadxs used homemade firecrackers to cover their retreat. At the end of the action a police roadblock one block away from the barricade was attacked with stones and firecrackers which forced the police to abandon the site.
