On February 1st, while taking a leisurely stroll through downtown Campeche, we began seeing banners, flags, and signs being distributed to people all around us. At first it was a trickle but it soon became a flood. Everyone was wearing white tops, people were happy, and smiling, yet we could see they were filled with a certain kind of determination. Even kids were involved in whatever was happening.
One in ten people in Campeche, the least populated and perhaps a lesser known state in Mexico, came out to march against Trump! Let that sink in, 10% or 23,000 folks marching in this town!

The reason they were wearing white was to show unity and solidarity. Usually each political party in Mexico proudly displays their own color scheme. It is quite remarkable that party affiliation was purposefully left out of this demonstration. Whether from left, right or center, they are united on this front.
