That’s a demonstration: 1.1+ million in Mexico City

Daily Kos
get out in the streets and protest BushExcerpt: A large number of Mexicans rallied yesterday to demand a recount in Mexico’s Presidential election. Obviously no one knows how many; it’s really difficult to estimate such a large crowd. But here’s a typical description, this from the Los Angeles Times:

Police officials subordinate to the PRD-led city government said 1.1 million people took part in the daylong protest. Notimex, the semiofficial news agency of the conservative-led federal government, estimated 700,000 were present.

H.L.s Take:
How much more will America have to put up with before we can demonstation of this size against Bush?

    I’m proud of Mexicans for standing up and defending democracy. This is better than what Americans did when the Bush sindicate claimed to win the 2000 and 2004 elections.

    I wonder what the hell Bush would do if 2-3 million people demanded that a fair recount be conducted. Would he claim victory and then send in tanks?
