Street vendors gather to protest COVID-19 restrictions in Mexico City on July 4; avoid all protests as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 7/5/2020, 12:00 AM until 7/7/2020, 11:59 PM (America/Mexico_City). COUNTRY/REGION Mexico City


Two hundred street vendors gathered in Mexico City on Saturday, July 4, to denounce coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions in place. Several major avenues were briefly blocked in downtown Mexico City on Sunday. Street vendors are decrying the measures that they claim are damaging their businesses and removing their income streams.

Further protests are possible over the near term as restrictive measures remain in place on informal commerce businesses.


Since March, authorities have banned informal commerce businesses such as street vendors to stem the spread of COVID-19.


Individuals in Mexico City are advised to monitor developments, avoid all demonstrations and political gatherings, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
