At dawn on Tuesday, November 22, an unexpected and cowardly police operative,, involving hundreds of polices (“granaderos”) expeled the autonomous space Chanti Ollin -located at #424 on Melchor Ocampo Avenue in the delegation Cuauhtémoc- and all the people that was in it. The balance is of 26 people detained, including a minor of 3 years, in addition to several injured people during the evactuation. Free and independent media speak of a possible deportation of members of the space of other nationalities, the presence of construction machinery that hit the facade of the building, and in turn, the police placed metal fences around the building.
The detainees are in the Public Ministry No. 50 or “Bunker”. Solidarity organizations call for a meeting on the outskirts of this ministerial agency and Chanti Ollin, to demand the release of arrested people and for the permanent monitoring of the autonomus space. On his Facebook page, Chanti Ollin shares: “Chanti Ollin is an autonomous and independent community, today it was evicted and the compas are detained at the moment.Those who live in Chanti are people who practice solidarity with groups and people who seek a better world, so they carry out various activities in the interior of the country, giving courses, communitary works and shows in highly marginalized communities. At the moment the solidarity of all is needed. “
