Massive crowds in Mexico protest stolen election

Close to a million people spilled out into the streets on Sunday to protest possible fraud in the recent presidential election:

Hundreds of thousands of protesters marched through the Mexican capital on Sunday to demand a manual recount in the disputed presidential election, led by a leftist candidate who says fraud cost him the presidency.

As a precaution, the Roman Catholic Church canceled Mass at the city’s downtown cathedral as supporters of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador began to overwhelm the central plaza to the sound of firecrackers and bands. Police officials in the pro-Lopez Obrador city government estimated the crowd at 900,000.

900,000 is a lot of people! Visit the linked article to see just how many people showed up. Why can’t Americans get off their asses and protest when our elections are stolen. Good for Mexico!
