In unity with the big protests in several cities in the United States on January 20, a year after the inauguration of the Trump/Pence fascist regime, between 350 and 400 people marched in Mexico City from the Ángel de la Independencia to the U.S. embassy where they held a protest rally. Among the participants: a large contingent of the Unión Popular de Vendedores y Ambulantes, “28 de Octubre” from Puebla, about 45 students from the rural teacher-training school in Tiripetío (in the state of Michoacán), organizations in defense of migrants, the Movimiento Popular Revolucionario, and others.

Among the slogans that were heard: “Away with Trump, Away with [Mexican President Enrique] Peña, Down with the Whole System!” and “NO, In the Name of Humanity, We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!” Supporters of the communist revolution also chanted other slogans, such as “Humanity Needs Communist Revolution!” and “The Crisis of the System Has No Solution, the Only Solution Is Revolution! Re, Re, Revolution, Is The, The, The Solution!”

Among other speakers, there was a message of solidarity from a Brazilian. At the end, the Huizache Rap group played. While leafleting, exposing fascism in the United States and the collaborationist government of Mexico, a man told us some of what happened to him: “I am displaced from Veracruz. The narcos took everything from me. I reported it to the authorities but I realized that the army is with them and it would be better to come to this city. We get work here in whatever we can, but I feel real bad....” Only one of the innumerable crimes of the world capitalist-imperialist system.
