Cheap foreign imports

It’s getting ridiculous! You can’t find anything made here anymore.

But we aren’t the only Juans with problems. From Reuters, dateline Mexico City: “Thousands of Mexican farmers, some riding tractors and herding cows, flooded the capital Thursday to demand government protection against cheap U.S. imports.”

Here are some pictures of the protest. Note the lack of flags. I guess they only use them when they protest in the United States.

And don’t think for a minute that the Mexican Government was powerless to stop this protest. They wanted the world to see this.

That hunk of flames is a tractor burning next to the Monument of the Revolution.
