Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators marched through the heart of Mexico City recently to protest a proposed constitutional amendment to create homosexual “marriage” and adoption in Mexico as well as plans to impose sex education inspired by gender ideology.
The marchers walked from the National Auditorium down the city’s main avenue, the Paseo de la Reforma, to the Angel of Independence, one of the most important monuments of the city. Although city officials estimated attendance at 20,000, march organizers and Church officials cited estimates of 400,000-450,000. Drone video provided by organizers indicated a large crowd stretching down the Paseo de la Reforma, but the video did not include a flyover of the entire march route.
Demonstrators dressed in the customary white shirts of Mexico’s pro-family movement chanted and held signs with such slogans as “You can see it, you can feel it, the family is defending itself,” “The family, united, will never be defeated,” “Biology, not ideology,” and “We’re not one, we’re not a hundred, Mr. President, count us well!”
The protest, called the “March for the Family,” was organized by Mexico’s National Front for the Family, a coalition of more than 1,000 civil society organizations.
