Uber drivers demand improved security after co-worker shot dead

Eduardo Torres, a  25-year-old Uber driver, was shot dead in Tlajomulco, Monday, his death occurring just moments after co-workers received communications from the man in which he expressed anxiety about the passengers he had picked up in the Puerta de Hierro neighborhood of Zapopan.

The following day, Uber drivers staged a protest on the western Periferico, demanding authorities improve security for those offering their services vis-a-vis the popular application.

The company itself, almost constantly embroiled in some conflict or another around the world, has become involved in the case, pleading with Guadalajara’s drivers not to resort to violence in prosecuting their demands.

Uber drivers staged a second demonstration on Wednesday, outside the Jalisco government palace in downtown Guadalajara.
