Over 30 people injured in feminist marches for abortion legalization in Mexico: Official

Mexico City, Sep 29 (UNI/Sputnik) As many as 37 police officers and civilians sustained various injuries during the rallies for legalizing abortions by the feminist movement in the Mexican capital, the city's public safety deputy minister said on Wednesday.
Already at night, police and entrepreneurs started preparations for the marches in Mexico City. Shop windows and doors were covered with metal shields; monuments, historical buildings, and the National Palace, which is a final destination of the rallies, were fenced. Such demonstrations are always attended by aggressive female extremists wearing balaclava helmets and armed with paint sprays, chains, hammers, and Molotov cocktails.
"Upon the end of the marches, 37 people are injured including 27 police officers, one colleague from the interior ministry, and nine civilians (5 men and 4 women). Four police officers needed hospitalization," Marcela Figueroa tweeted.
