Massive Protest After Mexican President-Elect Buys Election [VIDEO]
This weekend in Mexico, tens of thousands of protestors took to the streets to expose President-Elect Enrique Pena Nieto’s scheme to buy the election. Watch the video of the world’s largest protest — and take notes, America.
Occupy Mexico! Students, union workers and mothers flooded several city streets in Mexico after the announcement of the new president, accusing him of buying votes and paying off TV networks for support.
Take a look at the BROADER picture of this protest.
According to Reuters, Pena Nieto’s Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) won Sunday’s election by almost seven percentage points, according to the official count. The PRI previously ruled Mexico for seven decades, during which time it was accused of rigging elections and repressing protesters.
“The PRI threatens many people and buys others with a couple of tacos,” said Manuel Ocegueda, a 43-year-old shop worker participating in the march.
Here in America, we don’t buy voters tacos, but subs might do the trick, ah Mitt?
For the first time in history, right here in the USA, we are witnessing a challenger in the presidential race raise more money than the sitting president. Republican front-runner Mitt Romney raised more than $1.25 million in the 2 hours he was here in Buffalo 2 weeks ago. And the donations continue to pour in from those determined to “Beat Obama”. Funny, I thought VOTES provoked the election of a new president, not campaign donations.
America, we are new to this form of solidarity, as started with the Occupy Wall Street movement, but we CANNOT stand by and allow the Republicans to steal the election AGAIN, like Bush did in 2000 when Al Gore WON the popular vote and George W. moved into the White House!
There is a massive campaign within the Republican party to disqualify Romney as a Presidential candidate. Take a listen to this conference call that discusses that charges Mitt faces for voter fraud and other criminal activity!
