There will be more coverage coming out soon on It’s Going Down but since January 1st, protests and actions have been happening daily across Mexico to protest the government-ordered 20% price hike on gas, called the #gasolinazo.

Every state and Mexico City have seen actions from marches and blockades of toll booths, border crossing and highway, to the expropriation of corporate mega stores. Four have been killed by police and 800 arrested.

It’s Going Down is a revolutionary media platform from anarchist, anti-fascist and anti-capitalist movements. We are a network of friends and comrades across so-called North America, who seek to provide news and analysis of when it goes down: riots, strikes, sabotage, occupations, expropriations, rebellion, revolt, insurrection, whether together or alone – we support liberatory revolt. We are a news website and not an organization who seek to uplift and build capacity for a wide range of social struggles, movements, and revolutionary groups.
