Mexican Police Surround Indigenous Triqui, Relocate to Garbage Dump


The Mexican government violently forced the Triqui community out of their protest camp and relocated them to a garbage dump on Monday. When the Triquis refused to live in these terrible conditions they were encapsulated by riot police for more than 40 hours.

The Triqui community from Tierra Blanca, Oaxaca is in Mexico City demanding their land be returned. In 2020, armed groups with the support of bad politicians stole their territory. Tomorrow they’ll hold a press conference in the exact place they were kicked out of.
