#UnDiaSinTransporte Favorite 

Mexican truck operators, members of the national transporters union (Trabajadores de la Alianza Mexicana de Organización de Transportistas A. C. (Amotac) ) organized a national strike across the most important and circulated freeways of the nation. Hundreds of cargo vehicles blocked the way, preventing other vehicles to continue on their route. The operators organized a pacific protest demanding their local and national government a final solution to the corruption, violence, and conditions of insecurity, they are subjected to every day as a result of their work.
They also demanded higher salaries and benefits due to the COVID pandemic.

Timeframe For change


The strike and public demonstrations just started today, so it is difficult to establish with certainty its level of effectiveness just yet. However, the demonstrations caused much discomfort across the national territory, making people aware of the situation and bringing the attention of national media organizations. A good way to start.
