Mexican women protesting the death of Victoria Esperanza Salazar Arriaza, a 37 year old mother of two that died in handcuffs with a police officers knee on her back, crying that she couldn’t breath.

Women chant “The police don't take care of me, my friends take care of me.” as they march to the National Palace.

"Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said that Salazar had been "brutally treated and murdered"

I spent all day on the Blue Lives Matter side. They seemed to trust me. Oops. I couldn't upload while I was on their side so I'll start a thread now.

Cop just ripped my mask off and threw a tear gas canister under me as I was kneeled filming an arrest of another member of press. I had been in the same position filming for quite a while before this cop decided to target me.
