Thousands of Mexicans protest against Gay marriage

Thousands of people across Mexico staged protest yesterday against gay marriage, challenging President Enrique Peña Nieto’s proposal to recognise same-se x marriage throughout the traditionally conservative country.

The marches were called by the National Front for the Family, a coalition of civil society organisations and various religious groups, and continued throughout the day from Mexico’s far north to the Yucatan peninsula.

Same-sex marriage is permitted in Mexico City, as well as in several states including Coahuila, Quintana Roo, Jalisco, Nayarit, Chihuahua and Sonora.

Peña Nieto has now proposed changing the constitution to allow it nationally.
