Calls for a recount in the Mexican presidential election continue to grow. It’™s looking like the IFE is going to agree to at least a partial recount of votes. A largely peaceful crowd of 2.5 million people converged on the Zacalo in Mexico City today, in support of Lopez Obrador ‘” but more importantly, in support of ensuring the election was properly accounted for. Charles at Mercury Rising is covering the day’™s events.

Can you imagine what would have happened in 2000 if 2.5% of the U.S. population had shown up in Washington, DC. in support of Al Gore? 10 million people on the mall? It would have been much harder to ignore the election theft’¦and the country would likely not be in the mess we currently find ourselves.

Update: Lots of good information in this Daily Kos diary.
