Mexico protesters break presidential palace doors using a pickup

Protesters in Mexico brought down the door of the country’s National Palace using a pickup as revealed in a video circulating online.

The pickup which is owned by Comisión Federal de Electricidad, an electrical company in the country got the crowd cheering as the wooden door came down.

International media stations revealed that the Palace is where President Andrés Manuel López Obrador holds his day to day briefings and hosts a number of high level meetings.

Even though the protesters gained entry into the Palace, they were however chased away from the building by the police who deployed teargas to disperse them on time before things got out of hands.

This is not the first time that the historical building has been attacked as last year the door were burnt down during the International Women’s Day.

Speaking after the latest development, President Lopez noted that it was meant to cause provocation as he downplayed the whole situation. “This is a movement against us,” he said

The demonstration was caused by a 2014 incident where 43 students went missing in the city of Iguala, south of Mexico. Over 60 male students boarded busses to attend an annual protest but along the way, the road was blocked and shots fired by the police.

It was during the commotion that the 43 students went missing and up to date only three remains have been found. Parents of the students have vowed to push with the protests until when they get a body of the children.
