Another day, another demostration in Mexico City

We saw several protests and rallies in Mexico City. They included protests for releasing alleged religious prisoners, justice in education and retired soldier pensions. Whenever there was a protest there was a huge influx in police. Large personnel carriers would park in the backstreets and police would be carrying riot gear and standing in lines of 20 or 30. In the morning of the 30-31st rally there were more police than demosnstraters. On a non eventful day, three policemen can be found on any street corner in the Zocalo. Some patrol the pedestrian thoroughfares on segways.
