14 year old Javier Cortes was the victim of Police ordered to use 'lethal force'. He died in San Salvador where state repression is currently the norm.

Todays demo told the Mexican government that people are watching closely. The lock on, which closed the consulate, was joined by a Samba band and several bemused cops who had clearly forgotten their angle grinder.

There were no arrests when yours-truly left at about 11. Niether were there any signs that the protesters were leaving.
