Around the World People Protest Trump-Pence Regime
Protest vs Trump at U.S. Embassy in Mexico City
Protesters gathered outside the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City burned an American flag—with the stars replaced with swastikas—to protest the Trump inauguration. People chanted, among others: "Down with Trump! No more walls, no more deaths!" Protest leaders said the action was against the "consolidation of fascism" in the United States.
In Mexican society, Trump is much repudiated for his hate speech toward Latino immigrants, his promise to build a wall on the border, and his intentions to deport millions of undocumented immigrants. Opposition to Trump also connects up with sharp discontent in Mexican society and the anger toward and calls for the ouster of Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto.
"Trump hates gays, lesbians. Everyone is resisting. We are mobilizing against all that this is going to mean for humanity. We do not accept a fascist America,” said a representative of the Movimiento Popular Revolucionario (Revolutionary People’s Movement). The Binational Coalition against Donald Trump initiated the campaign "A Day Without Migrants" calling on the migrant community in the United States to go on strike against the persecution of immigrants and demanded the Mexican government defend fellow Mexicans.
