The protest took place on Friday in the border city of Ciudad Juarez.

Organisers said it was also intended as a symbol of unity among Mexicans and of friendship and solidarity with the people of the US, the Mexico News Daily reported.

The protest was called by Chihuahua Governor Javier Corral.

“In the face of the intention of Donald Trump to build a wall we cannot bow down, because bowing down will mean things will go worse for us,” the governor said before the event.

He said Mexicans, in the face of hostility, would reaffirm their bonds of friendship with the people of the US.

Oscar Leeser, the mayor of El Paso, Texas, appeared to be the lone politician in attendance from the US side of the border.

Leeser called for unity and pointed out that Juarez and El Paso are the same city and the same community.
