Anti-Trump Marches Take Over Mexico City

As a country that is most deeply affected by the U.S.'s policies, many wished for more ways to voice their disagreement with Donald Trump's presidency

Mexico City showed their contempt for the United States’ new president in many ways this past weekend. Dozens of organizations, both U.S. and Mexico-based, took to the streets to show solidarity with U.S. protesters and protested the many ways Mexico itself will be affected by Trump’s presidency.

On Friday, the day of Trump’s inauguration, hundreds gathered to demonstrate their disapproval of the U.S.’s new president. Organized by Mexican social groups, the march included a wide range of organizations and issues — from socialist workers’ groups to feminist student groups — and called attention to different failings of both the U.S. and Mexican governments. Protesters marched from the U.S. Embassy around the Angel of Independence and down Reforma to the Zócalo where they burned a Trump effigy.

Saturday’s protest took a different tone. Organized by expats, the crowds were primarily made up of U.S. women. This march was in solidarity with the U.S. Women’s March and was much smaller than the one that took place the previous day (a recent CNN article incorrectly estimated Mexico City’s Women’s March as larger than the anti-Trump march the day before). The organizing started on Facebook and at noon on Saturday, people met at the U.S. Embassy with signs and flags and marched around the Angel of Independence.

As a country that is most deeply affected by the United States’ policies, many wished for more ways to voice their disagreement with Donald Trump’s presidency.
