U.S. Expats Vigil in Solidarity with Mexican Neighbors over Trump Election

Share This

As U.S. citizens in Mexico, we are outraged by the recent election of Donald Trump as President of the United States.  We loudly declare that Donald Trump lost the popular vote and was deceitful and dishonest during the election process and therefore has lost any legitimacy.

We will stand together on November 20 at 2 p.m. in the Jardin to share our concern about how this Presidency will impact the Mexican people here and in the United States.

We are also concerned with the destruction of the Earth’s environment and the loss of safety net programs in the United States. We continue to be gravely concerned with the racism and xenophobia so prominent in his election campaign.  This does not represent the values we and most US citizens hold.  And it is an insult to our neighbors here in Mexico who have so warmly welcomed us to their country.

We call on all conscientious U.S. citizens in San Miguel to take a strong stand for wisdom, tolerance and understanding in the days ahead. We pledge our all to defend the Earth and all of its peoples with compassion and love during the coming dark days.

Viva Mexico, viva USA and viva North America, of which we are all a part.

Remember, for evil to triumph, it is only necessary for good people to do nothing.
