About 70 American expats gathered Sunday Sept. 25 in the Merida home of Greg Casini to particpate in an anti-Trump piñata party.
The gathering in the Casa de las Torres in Calle 75 between 64 and 62 in the Ermita neighborhood was intended to send a message of rejection to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has made negative portrayals of Mexico and Mexicans a linchpin of his campaign.
The invitees busted a Trump piñata and built a “More Love Less Hate” wall of cardboard boxes, in opposition to Trump’s vow to build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
Casini’s gathering comes as American expats throughout Mexico and other countries are organizing to get out the vote for Trump’s opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton.
As reported in The Yucatan Times on Sept. 23 and 25, an international civic organization has launched a campaign to encourage American expatriates to vote in November’s presidential election and defeat Donald Trump.
