Tens of thousands of protesters, many holding hand-written placards, marched through the Mexican capital on Saturday against President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto, accusing him of buying votes and paying off TV networks for support.

Here's my perspective. Why is it that in many countries of Earth's area do we have a dichotomy of Right vs.Left? What's the credence that lends to such mentality in voting? Why doesn't a third (or fourth) alternative become the vote of the populace? Is it indoctrination in religion? There is some kind of gerimandering going on here on a global scale. Don't you see it? Any thoughts?

More About Mexico Protest If you want more info about what's going on try researching about the student movement "yo soy 132" and also there are thousands of videos on youtube that people uploaded the day of the election showing Peña Nieto's people buying votes and doing lots of other illegal things. If you need anything else send me a message, thanks again for sharing the news with your subscribers
could be anything
if I didn't know better
I would say the popes visiting
A comrade from Mexico sent us this message, we repost it :
"Hello, could you please share this information about what is going on in Mexico...this is all about corruption and how politician´s treating their nation.
In Mexico will be a huge protest very soon but the television is saying nothing about what is going on there. This is not the first time that this happened in Mexico and government will be using violence. But if we spread this message all over the world they can´ t do that.
This is very important.
pre election's day:
pro PRI .( allegedly winning party) supporters began a campaign around the country to buy the poorest mexican's citizens votes.
elections day (july 1st 2012)
PRI, enrique pena nieto supporters (winning candidate because of the most retarded scam in world's history) supporters were positioned all over the country to intimidate voters from other parties' supporters. also these scum bags use the police against people who were against them by incarcerating them, or by giving them money, cell phones etc etc etc. for their vote.
also these wastes of life after the elections were over stole the elections packages were the people casted their vote. these packages were burned . in addition, in several voting sites, people were not even allowed to cast their vote because for "unknown reasons" (the worst scam in mexican history and the most retarded one and obvious one, even for the lower classes) there were enough ballots for them. my #ing ass is white, and im black.
post election's day, hours after the end of the elections (july 1st 2012)
after the presidential elections ended ( 5pm ) only few hours after (considering that in a nation of 110 million inhabitants, millions of votes cant be counted that fast) only few hours after opposing candidates (part of the scam) PAN (jvm, josefina vazquez mota) Alianza ciudadana (gabriel quadri) accepted their loss for becoming mexico's next president. Felipe calderon (mexico's current president, of course totally corrupted as the entire government) without having official information (for obvious reasons, come'on the elections finished hours ago) declared PRI's candidate enrique pena nieto as the new "elected' mexican president.
this is mexico's sad reality, share this message, thank you for your help.

Lots of people jumping to correct the "blackout" claim, but let's take a look at the front page of MSM sites. No mention of Mexico on Fox, CNN, MSNBC... So here it's more of a brownout.
Are Mexican media outfits reporting on it? If not, it is a blackout.
This was my first thought. 15 million looks like a cooked figure. But it looks like I was wrong. 15 millionss was a figured pulled out of a misquote. I've found this line, on an aljazeera article.

It would appear the real numbers are in the tens of thousands and not millions but why split hairs? That and if it's not being reported why did I know about this before opening this thread?
Street protests in 2006, backed by Obrador who camped out in the Zocalo, Mexico City's main square, were a "peaceful movement of civil resistance", PRD spokesperson Camerino Eleazar told Al Jazeera. "The main objective was to channel the energy of 15 million who were disappointed and felt defrauded after the decision of not reviewing ballot boxes."
