The Alianza Mexicana de Organización de Transportistas Asociación Civil (AMOTAC) transport union has called for a national strike and road blocks on Tuesday, October 29. Participants plan to block the main roads in all states starting at 08:00 (local time). This includes blocking the main entrances and exits to Mexico City with caravans from the states of Puebla, Hidalgo, Morelos, Querétaro, the State of Mexico, and the city of Toluca. Several demonstrations are also scheduled to take place on the following roads:
- Marquesa (Toluca to Mexico City)
- Queretaro to Cuautitlan
- Cuernavaca to Mexico City
- Puebla to Cordova
- Congreso de la Unión
A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are expected throughout the country.
Individuals in Mexico are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, prepare for disruptions to transportation in demonstration- and strike-affected areas, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
