Police used tear gas Saturday in Chiapas against members of the one caravan in Mexico whose destination is not the United States.
The caravan made up of as many as 500 displaced indigenous people had been marching from San Cristóbal de las Casas to the capital, Tuxtla Gutiérrez, arriving in time for the annual report to the state Congress by Governor Manuel Velasco Coello.
Police responded with tear gas when the marchers attempted to enter the building, which triggered a counterattack in which the latter threw rockets, stones and other projectiles at police.
Mexico asks US for investigation into using tear gas against migrants
Hmmm. Seems they displaced themselves.
Not sure how the leftists will blame that on Trump. But I’m sure they’ll find a way.
Did they do blood tests to determine there’s no spanish in them?
Every violent act is blamed on Trump’s rhetoric.
Well, well, well!
I made sure I checked the date of this article before reacting.
Here lately, some on FR have began a confusing and annoying habit of posting years OLD articles on still hot topics.
Talk about anti-climatic.
I wish my arm was powerful enough to throw rockets.
“displaced indigenous people’’. Wow. There’s a contraction in terms.
Thanks, good music.
You don’t like recycled news? :-)
This is recent news.
If theyre indigenous, why are they leaving? Who is displacing them ?For what reason do they they think they are entitled to settle in the USA? If they arent willing to fight for their land, we dont need the faggots here. Fuck off Aztecs.
They’re not coming here, don’t intend to.
In my haste, I failed to read the article. So its the Mexican government bashing their own folks. Forget it Jake, its Mexico. They should fight for their land though. Hope it goes well for the Aztecs. Do they even have representation for what that is worth in the Mexican political arena ?
the marchers... threw rockets, stones and other projectiles at police.
Rockets? Where'd they get 'em, Rockets R Us?
They have also been very quiet about the additional 4 to 5 thousand still heading to Tijuana haven’t they.
“Forget it Jake, its Mexico.”

In the highest FReeper tradition which many of us follow on occasion. ;-)
