Help hunger strikers facing eviction in Mexico
On Wednesday, January 23 Mexican farmers took their struggle against genetically modified (GM) corn to the plaza, embarking on a hunger strike and sit-in in Mexico City. And they need your support before they are arrested.
According to members of the Via Campesina, city officials agreed prior to the demonstration to allow the protestors peaceful demonstration in front of the Angel of Independence statue. However, when hundreds of farmers from 20 states in Mexico took their place on the plaza, they were quickly surrounded by armed forces threatening to evict them.
