During a press conference, some of the organizers emphasized that this march aims to express rejection and indignation against the sayings and actions of U.S. President Donald Trump towards Mexico.

“What we are doing is for Mexico” said Enrique Graue, UNAM rector, during the national presentation of this act.

During these simultaneous marches, demonstrators will require the federal government to place the rights of all Mexicans above any negotiations with the U.S.; and will demand permanent reports from the Mexican government on negotiations with the Trump administration.

    I deeply regret disrespect shown to the Mexican people and their government by members of the USA government. Such an attitude to our neighbors is an embarrassment to me. My visits to San Miguel de Allende have given me nothing but pleasure in the place and respect for the inhabitants who have been most welcoming and helpful to me. I hope that the rude behavior of a few Americans will not change the long, mutual cooperation and goodwill between our countries and people.

    This seems a political protest. Americans are prohibited from participating in a political protest, even if the protest is against American Politics no?
