Indigenous Otomi Zapatistas Clash With Police in Mexico City

Police arrested 9 indigenous Otomi occupiers of the National Institute of Indigenous Peoples, shortly after the government agreed to take down 3 properties for a community housing project. The Zapatista-aligned indigenous community expressed that the occupation would continue to occur until the dropping of all charges and release of all detained Otomi.

The Otomi occupying the building responded to the arrests by burning important documents and blockading a major road in front of the Institute in Mexico City.
