Chicago, Illinois - On Tuesday, multiple groups, organizations and Mexican nationals will engage in a major protest and shutdown of the Mexican Consulate in Chicago. The Chicago protest coincides with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto's visit to Washington, D.C. and his narco-goverment allegedly implicated in thousands of murders, corruption and the disappearance of students in Mexico, including the 43 Ayotzinapa missing students in Guerrero. New evidence implicated the Mexican Federal Police, the Guerrero State Police and Mexican military in a joined operation conducting surveillance and a planned cold blooded attack by Federal Police, military, Iguala and Cocula municipal police on the Ayotzinapa students on September 26, 2014 in Iguala. The students were exposing a major organized corruption and murder operation between local municipal police, mayors, the Guerreros Unidos, a criminal organization, including state and the federal governments.
The group is also protesting the December 19 expulsion of Mexican nationals from the Mexican Consulate in Chicago by police.
Dozens of protesters and clients seeking services at the Consulate were forcibly expelled from the Mexican sovereign property by Chicago police. All of those who were expelled from the Consulate were released outside.
The Mexican Consulate shutdown will take place at 204 Ashland Ave, in Chicago, Illinois at 8:00 a.m. on January 6, 2015.
Similar protests and shutdown actions by Mexican nationals are expected at other Mexican Consulates in the U.S. and Canada.
The event is sponsored by Semillas Autonomas Organization which says, the protests and shutdown is organized to draw national attention to "The state violence against the Mexican people. The aggresion of the Consulate against community members" in Chicago.
