Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Mexico’s president and longtime protest leader, took thousands of Mexicans to the streets for the first time since he took office in 2018, celebrating the upcoming fourth anniversary of his rule.

Supporters gathered early Sunday on Paseo de La Reforma, one of Mexico City’s major downtown thoroughfares, and made their way toward the city’s main square to hear AMLO, as the president is known, give his annual address.
