Article Photos: Mexico swears in president amid violent protests 34/54

Members of the National Congress hang a giant protest banner that reads in Spanish: "Imposition consummated. Mexico mourns," prior to the inauguration ceremony of new Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, in Mexico City, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012.  Hundreds of protesters opposed to Pena Nieto's rule banged on the tall steel barriers surrounding  the National Congress, threw rocks, bottle rockets and firecrackers at police and yelled "Mexico without PRI!"  Pena Nieto took power at midnight in a symbolic ceremony and will formally take the oath of office Saturday morning. (AP Photo/Alexandre Meneghini)
