This demonstration was a response to publics tiredness towards the corrupted political class in Mexico. In a peaceful demonstration through the exposure of art, it sought to intervene but using the symbol of the rats to account for the number of corrupt politicians in the Country. 

A number of handmade wood shape-rats were developed for intervention upon by the Mexican Artistic Community. The project was carried out with a large number of artists from the Mexican Republic.
