Mexico: socialists violently attacked by gangs - urgent solidarity needed

Izquierda Revolucionaria (IR - CWI Mexico) members in the 'Colegio de Bachilleres 2' school have been attacked.

The culprits? A 'porril' group (fascistic, terroristic gangs in universities) known as the Cancheros.

One IR member was hit and another chased. IR organises campaigns against the impunity with which porriles act on campus - robbing and intimidating workers, teachers and students.

IR says: "We were able to neutralise this attack through our action... but we are conscious that these groups will not just retreat unless they are confronted with organised struggle.

"Therefore we ask for support and solidarity messages, including via videos and photos, so the authorities who promote the porriles hear loud and clear that an injury to one is an injury to all!" #FueraPorrosDeLasEscuelas #FueraPorrosDeBachilleres
