"Protestors clashed with police around the National Congress in Mexico City, where the swearing in of new Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto took place on Saturday Dec. 1, 2012. Pena Nieto took the oath of office as Mexican president on Saturday, offering a shot at redemption for the party that shaped modern Mexico if he can bring about an end to years of violence and economic underperformance. Pena Nieto campaigned as the face of a new PRI, a party that claims to be repentant and reconstructed after voted out of the presidency in 2000."
Any of you seen this on the news? I've been in Mexico this past week with limited internet and no credible news media on the TV, so I'm barely starting to get informed on this.
A friend of mine from Guadalajarra:
"Hoy en la FIL los policias nos agredieron a macanasos, piedras y gas lacrimogeno. Hay mas de 30 detenidos y mas de 10 heridos."
(Today at the International Book Fair, policemen assaulted us with batons, rocks and teargas. There are more than 30 arrested and more that 10 injured.)
