Mexican Unions Take to Streets in 'A Day Without Gringos'
Hundreds of Mexican union members took to the streets of central Mexico City early Monday to support Mexican migrants living and working in the United States and to boycott U.S. goods in what was dubbed a "A Day Without Gringos."
At least a half-dozen state governors in Mexico endorsed the boycott of McDonald's, Wal-Mart and hundreds of other U.S. companies here — an action timed to coincide with a call for immigrants to boycott work, school and shopping in the United States.
Fine, the only reason that people in Mexico have any buying power whatsoever is because of the remittance you get from America. If I was a Mexican citizen I would be ashamed of my pathetic country.
