Protesters walked along Juárez Avenue, then joined Paseo de la Reforma and reached Vacilio Badillo Street to the La Prensa building.
The journey was monitored by female policemen, who at the same time guarded the monuments and stations of Metrobus.
In front of the middle building some members of the march made pints and set fire to a delivery truck of La Prensa and then retreated and walk again towards Paseo de la Reforma.

When the main entrance of La Prensa was sheltered, demonstrators arrived on Basilio Badillo Street to protest in front of the newspaper’s access.
