Thousands of Mexicans around the world protested today to reject the results of the Mexican elections and denouncing them as fraudulent. Protesters of the “Mega Marcha” shouted slogans against Peña Nieto; PRI; the electoral authority Instituto Federal Electoral, or IFE; and against TV networks.

From Mexico City to Vancouver, demonstrators accused President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto of buy votes and paying off TV networks for favorable coverage.

In Los Angeles, several Mexicans expressed their discontent. “They robbed us like they have robbed us our entire lives,” said Irma Soto, 61. She lamented the return of Partido Revolucionario Institucional, or PRI, which ruled for the 71 years until the elections in 2000.

“We’re here demonstrating against fraud and corruption,” said Efren Berber, 32, who added that said elections had been marred by “mediatic fraud.”

1. The Mexican Plutocracy wins again.

 

America, take note. This is our future if we don't make drastic changes, now.

2. Our entire planet is becoming enablers of the billionaire criminal class.

George Carlin was right - it's a big club - and we ain't in it.
