<<I got results concerning protests from journalists, sugar cane farmers protesting, the Tlatelolco massacre (older since it's 1968), a protest concerning the governmental budget, textile workers protesting, electrical workers protesting, miners protesting...the list goes on.>>

Does anyone else see the problem here? This isn't the Mexican people rising up, and protesting their government. It's individual small groups protesting for their particular grievances. If these people would band together, and demand changes in the government to benefit all their citizens, they might accomplish something. Their protests are like employees going on strike in this country. Do they change the government? No, they weren't meant to. They were only meant to accomplish something for that particular group.

and again I state, pot calling the kettle black. we dont demand anything from out government either because they dont listen to you unless your from another country or have alot of money. Yes they should band together and make demands on their government and not ours, but honestly how realistic is it to do that? If it was that easy Id like loads of us would have done it here.
