Mexico City: AMLO's supporters blocking highways and toll booths

This photo is at the toll booth plaza on the highway to Cuernavaca at about 10:00 this morning. The AMLO supporters have also blocked or taken over the toll plazas on the highway to Puebla and maybe 2 or 3 others. In some cases they are allowing vehicles to pass without paying the tolls. In others, they have blocked the highways.

Mark in Mexico http://markinmexico.blogspot.com/ Pale Horse Galleries http;//palehorsemex.vstore.ca/ Mexico City AMLO blocks toll booths on highways leading to and from Mexico City. Some highways are being blocked while at others the toll plazas have been prevented from collecting tolls. In this view, Federal Preventive Police forces await orders to retake the Cuernavaca Highway toll plaza from the mob.
PFP officers await orders to disperse the mob from the Cuernavaca Highway toll plaza.

The federal agency which administers the highways says that it will take appropriate action to recover the toll plazas and control of the highways. If the photo above is an indication of their action, they don't have enough cops.
