An audience member carries his pet hen while listening to Mexican leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (not pictured) during a political gathering in Mexico City September 8, 2013. Mexico's government will propose a levy on stock market gains and higher taxes on the middle class and up, according to a fiscal reform draft obtained by Reuters, but it has backed down from a controversial sales tax amid an economic slowdown. Lopez Obrador, who was runner-up to Pena Nieto in last year's election, has vowed protests against the reforms. Thousands gathered at a rally led by Lopez Obrador in central Mexico City on Sunday, though the atmosphere was peaceful.
