Some 10,000 people marched through Mexico City's streets on Tuesday, in protest against President Enrique Pena Nieto’s recent decision to increase gasoline prices by 20 percent. The president defended the price hikes, presenting them as a necessary measure amid the global oil price hike. Multiple protests have been held across Mexico against the decision since it was announced, with demonstrators blocking roads and gas stations.
