A comrade from Mexico sent us this message:
"Hello, could you please share this information about what is going on in Mexico...this is all about corruption and how politicians are treating their nation.
In Mexico, there will be a huge protest very soon but the media is saying nothing about what is going on. This is not the first time that this has happened, and the government will be using violence. But if we spread this message all over the world they cannot do that.
This is very important.
- Pro Partido Revolucionario Institucional, or PRI (allegedly winning party), supporters began a campaign around the country to buy the poorest Mexican's citizens votes.
Election day (July 1st, 2012)
- PRI, Enrique Pena Nieto supporters (winning candidate because of the biggest scam in the world's history) were positioned all over the country to intimidate voters from other parties' supporters. They (these scum bags) used the police against people who resisted by incarcerating them, or by bribing them with money or cell phones for their vote.
The Enrique Pena Nieto supporters stole the elections packages where the people cast their vote after the elections. These packages were then burned. In addition, at several voting sites, people were not even allowed to cast their vote for "unknown reasons" (in my opinion, the worst scam in Mexican history and the most obvious one, even for the lower classes). There were enough ballots for them.
Post-election day, hours after the end of the elections (July 1st, 2012)
- Around 5 pm, which was only a few hours after the presidential election ended, Partido Acción Nacional (PAN) candidate Josefina Vazquez Mota and Alianza Ciudadana (Gabriel Quadri of Partido Nueva Alianza, PANAL) accepted their loss in the race to become Mexico's next president (part of the scam). Mexico is a nation of 110 million inhabitants: millions of votes cannot be counted that fast. Felipe Calderon, Mexico's current president (and as corrupted as the entire government), without having official information, declared PRI's candidate Enrique Pena Nieto as the new "elected" Mexican president.
This is Mexico's sad reality: share this message, and I thank you for your help."
