Large anti-Trump protests in Mexico

Muy bueno!

The Associated Press reports that thousands of people took to the streets of Mexico City to protest President Donald Trump’s policies toward that country.

Many marchers carried Mexican flags and dressed in white as a sign of unity and to signal the non-political nature of the march. One of the banners read: “Gracias, Trump, for unifying Mexico!” …

Paulina Ortega carried a placard in English proclaiming: “We love Americans, we hate racism.”

“This is a march for dignity,” she said.

This story allowed me to flashback to a wonderful trip I had in 2009 to Mexico City, where I attended an academic conference. A couple photos from that trip are below.
