Taxi drivers in Mexico have called for a nationwide strike to take on Monday, June 3, to denounce perceived regulation discrepancies between authorized taxi drivers and independent drivers for app-based ride-sharing companies. In the capital Mexico City, taxi drivers will reportedly gather at the Zocalo at 08:00 (local time). Taxi drivers have threatened to block access to the capital from 08:00 to 12:00.
Related demonstrations and associated road blockades are expected to take place in major urban centers throughout the day. Significant traffic disruptions are anticipated.
Individuals in Mexico are advised to monitor developments to the situation, prepare for transportation disruptions and make alternative arrangements if possible, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
