Free Shorty: Pro-Chapo-Protests in Mexico

In Mexiko protestieren bis zu tausend Kids gegen die Festnahme von Sinaloa Cartel-Kingpin Joaquín „El Chapo“ Guzmán Loera. Ist ein bisschen so, als würden die Mitarbeiter von Los Pollos Hermanos protestieren, natürlich ohne fehlende Gesichtshälften und Heisenberg-Bomben.

The largely young crowd, many dressed in white, bore signs that read "We want Shorty Freed" and "We demand no extradition" as they filed across the center of Culiacan, in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, to a church on a palm tree-lined plaza.

Boys donned white t-shirts scrawled with messages written in marker pen in support for "El Chapo," his nickname in Spanish. Teenage girls in school uniform chanted "Chapo, Chapo."

"The government doesn't give any job opportunities," said Daniel Garcia, an unemployed 20-year-old. "The situation is, honestly, really difficult and he helps out the young people, giving them jobs."
