Occupy Mexico

This set of images isn’t probably what you might expect for my first post from Mexico. But then if you’ve followed this blog for very long you know I don’t always, and often try not to, post the everyday average tourist photos. On my first day out in Mexico City I stumbled upon the Occupy Mexico rally, one of the many anti-Capitalist rallys going on around the world yesterday. This wasn’t exactly on my agenda for the day but it seemed like something I shouldn’t pass up. Monuments and museums aren’t going anywhere but you can’t see this every day. It was a much more upbeat gathering than what I saw of the Seattle protest a couple weeks ago where everyone was huddled around their tents hoping not to get arrested. Although there was plenty of protest statements being made and group organizational meetings going on, it was more like a big day in the park with multiple bands on the stage, people playing games and doing crafts.
