Bajadock: responding to a few emails on how this protest is going to progress…”Tijuana/Rosarito/Ensenada Mexicans shop in San Diego as if it were Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom”. Any short term anti-USA shopping will be short lived. Pocketbooks beat political acts.
The choices, variety, quality and value of goods are hard to beat in the USA. Want another comparison? Compare Tijuana vs San Diego craigslist for ANY item.
Movement “a few hours in Mexico” calls for Tijuana society to not cross the United States on February 5, in order to send a message to the administration of Trump on the “peso” which has the Mexican community in the economy of the border region.
The initiative spread through social networks called “give a moment to Mexico” and invites the community to not consume any product or go to work in the neighboring country between 8:00 and 15:00 hours on the first Sunday February as a protest against the recent measures of President Donald Trump and as a sign that Mexicans “have dignity.”
The Non Governmental Organization native of Tijuana, headed by a law graduate, Carlos Barboza Castillo, authors of the initiative # UnasHorasPorMéxico, recalled that the Calibaja area, although made up of cities from different countries and divided by a wall, is seen by residents as a region.
