Mexican business group threatens tax protest over teacher blockades inaction
MEXICO CITY — With a top Mexican business group calling for a tax protest, authorities are under growing pressure to stop blockades of streets and highways by demonstrating teachers, the Associated Press reported.
On Wednesday Aug. 3, a federal court issued a rare injunction ordering Mexico City authorities to guarantee free movement on a street that runs in front of the federal Interior Department. The street has been blocked for weeks at a time by protest encampments.
The tribunal says city authorities have not ensured the right to protest has been exercised with due respect for the right of movement.
