2 Million Protest In Mexico City For Vote Recount
As many as 2 million people rallied in Mexico City on Sunday July 30 to call for a full recount in the country’s disputed presidential election. Presidential runner-up Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador urged his supporters to camp out in the city’s streets until a recount occurs.

  • Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador: "I propose we stay here day and night until the votes are counted and we have a president-elect with the minimum legality that we Mexicans deserve."
Within hours of the protest, people began setting up tents across the capital. Sunday’s rally was the third and largest protest organized by supporters of Lopez Obrador since the July 2nd election which he lost by about half of a percentage point.
