romper el cerco
This documentary reveals the mass media’s strategy that ignores the concerns of the population and generates a climate of fear in order to justify a massive police deployment.
3.000 riot cops enter Atenco with a cruel brutality. The results are devastated homes, massive and arbitrary arrests, rapes and several violations of human rights that remind us of the Latin American dictatorships of the 70s. Solidarity protests take place from Berlin to Montreal. “Breaking the siege” tells the story of those who didn’t get the chance to speak in the mass media and who do not feel intimidated in the struggle for their rights.
