Move Over Mirreyes and Fresas, Punks Holding Fast in Mexico City
Mexico City isn’t just for mirreyes and fresas. Punks are a cultural staple in the country’s capital. El Tianguis Cultural del Chopo, the open-air flea market near the metro, is the weekly central meeting spot for punks, goths and metal heads.
For over 25 years, punks have gathered at the flea market…
Not not much has changed in terms of their style.

Here’s a punk from 2006.
They’re still wearing black, spiky hair and tons of pointed studs.
Punks, like Cheko, will travel three hours to hang at the market.
He explains that Mexico City punks don’t use anarchist as a tag, but rather as a counterculture to Western society.
You’ll see punks in tight pants supporting causes like feminism, animal liberation and mutual aid.
