National Guard personnel guard the Mexico-Cuernavaca toll booth.

Since 6 am this Thursday, 200 elements of the National Guard were strategically installed at kilometer 23 + 350 of the Mexico-Cuernavaca highway.
 
Collectives and social organizations frequently came to this place to obtain resources. They took the accesses, raised the feathers, and charged $ 50 per vehicle.

Sometimes several groups of various kinds met and organized to collect the money for 2 hours each.

The authorities have dozens of units and anti-riot equipment to face any eventuality that may arise.

This morning, a group of people arrived from the state of Guerrero and tried to take the toll booth, after talking with the security elements they understood that they could no longer carry out this practice and decided to withdraw. 

The operation is replicated in other points, such as the Ojo de Agua booth on the Mexico-Pachuca highway where the National Guard troops took back control of the toll collection after a group of protesters also showed up to carry out this task. .

It should be noted that the security and surveillance guard was implemented permanently.
