In Mexico City for the SEM conference, we passed a small but loud street protest this evening, flanked by many police cars. It came out of nowhere and none of us knew the protesters’ cause. Apparently these are very common – as in, more than daily – around here.
Fair warning: Posts during the conference will be a bit more tossed-off than normal. I generally don’t like posting about things I can’t explain at least somewhat credibly, but that’s not likely to happen much this weekend. Feel free to comment with context/translation.
