Event

The Democratic Revolution party has called for a protest in Villahermosa (Tabasco state) on Thursday, February 13, to oppose the local electricity company's announcement of cutting electricity to residents for non-payment. The policy change comes amid increased rates for the service. Participants are set to gather at an undisclosed location and will march to the Federal Electricity Commission as of the morning (local time).

A heightened security presence is likely in the vicinity of the march and at the Commission's headquarters.
