Some of the more well-known cities that the protests took place in were Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Culiacán, Los Mochis, Aguascalientes and Ciudad Juárez, with Guadalajara seeing the biggest crowd. Those responsible for starting and planning the events said there were more than 80,000 people in attendance. Some of the media, however, lowballed the number to be as low as only a few thousand.
More protests are planned in other Mexican cities on August 15, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
