Below are the second half of photos taken on August 19th, 20th and 21st, at various sections of the planton set up throughout Mexico City. Many working class people from all over Mexico have travelled to Mexico City to demand a full recount of the votes cast during the national election which took place on July 6th. Shouts of “voto por voto, casilla por casilla” (vote for vote, ballot box for ballot box) are heard everywhere as these people believe a recount will change the official results of the presidential election.

Caption for photo above: You think this planton is injustice? This is an injustice. She owes $15,000 pesos (approx. $1,500 USD) to the bank, and before she will learn to read and write, her debt will have tripled.

The first set of photos and commentary are available here:

Cleaning up one part of the planton in support of AMLO. The Zocalo is still filled with lots of people supporting AMLO and demanding a recount of the ballots, however some of portions of the planton, such as this one, are not very croweded anymore.
