Mexicanos al grito de ¡FUERO!

16 September 2015

I can’t recall any president in modern times facing as much public disdain as Enrique Peña Nieto. Días Ordaz was openly villified by protesters, but that was during protests against the government, not during the well-established traditional grito, when one celebrates the nation and national unity, not its deep divisions. I’d like to think this shows that the public are less inhibited by custom and tradition in expressing democratic sentiment, but what I think more likely is just that EPN is despised by a growing segment of the public (especially by the residents of Mexico City).
