Mexico City’s central plaza known as “Zócalo”, was packed with demonstrators protesting against the allegedly government-sponsored massacre of the 43 students from the town of Ayotzinapa, Guerrero.
Protesters burned a President Enrique Peña Nieto Piñata and demanded his resignation with chants, alleging his involvement with drug cartels in the kidnapping and killing of the students.
This demonstration was the culmination of a march down from the Chapultepec area, along Paseo de la Reforma, all the way to the Zócalo Square, where the burning took place around 8:30 pm local time.
But Mexico City was not the only place where this kind of demonstration took place.
Members of the Teachers Union of Baja California marched in the city of Tijuana, right on the Mexican – American border, just a few miles south of San Diego California.
They also burned an effigy of President Peña Nieto, along with two more piñatas of local politicians, Irma Martínez and Alberto Martínez, the demonstration took place right in front of Tijuana’s “Palacio Municipal”.
While they burned the piñatas, the teachers chanted “De Yucatan a la Baja, la gente no se raja” (From Yucatan to Baja, the people won’t back down).
And all the way down on the Southern Hemisphere, in the city of Buenos Aires Argentina, activists also burned a piñata resembling the Mexican President.
Famous Mexican soccer player, Javier “Chicharito” Hernández also protested against the Ayotzinapa case, posting a photograph dressed in black and with the hashtag “todos somos ayotzinapa” (we all are Ayotzinapa).
And at the Latin Grammy Awards Ceremony in Las Vegas, recording artist Calle 13 wore a t-shirt stating: “Ayotzinapa Faltan 43” (Ayotzinapa we are missing 43), as a sign of protest against social injustice in Mexico.
An singer Lila Downs dedicated her trophy to the families of the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa, Guerrero.
