Mexican election 2006
The 2006 Mexican general election in July 2006 was marred by allegations of fraud. One of the main streets of downtown Mexico City (Avenida Reforma) was occupied by sympathisers of Andrés Manuel López Obrador. The protesters set up tents on the street and pledged to remain there in support of their candidate until the votes were recounted, but on September 15, they decided to stop the blockading in order to allow the annual Independence Day Military Parade.
