Siempre hay más retenes de los que se anuncian, aunque por ley nos tienen que avisar. (Se sabe que a la autoridad no le importa la ley. ¡Sólo les importa joder!) Si ven un retén o cualquier abuso de parte de la policía, por favor, ¡avísenles a lxs de tu comunidad!

There are always more checkpoints than the ones that are announced, even though by law they are supposed to warn us. (We know that authority doesn't care about the law.
