Thousands of people protested this Saturday in the streets and avenues of dozens of cities simultaneously against the policies of the Government of the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
Convened in 70 cities in the country by the so-called National Citizen Front (Frena) and the National Citizen Congress (CNC), those dissatisfied with government policies demonstrated with their cars in a caravan for several cities.
The caravan called “López Vete Ya” aims to “express repudiation” to the president, whom they accuse of having put at risk the sovereignty, integrity, and independence of the people of Mexico in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, organizers said in their announcement.
The groups confirmed that the caravan was called in the Mexican capital and in cities such as Puebla, Cuernavaca, Querétaro, Oaxaca, Acapulco, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Chihuahua, Cancún, Mérida and Veracruz, Mazatlan, Tijuana among others.
During the passage of the caravans through the main streets of these cities, you could read banners about the cars with messages like “AMLO, get out”, “AMLO VetaYa” and “#AMLO resign now. You do not own Mexico”.
Health authorities have announced a return to normality in the country from June 1 based on a four-color traffic light that will determine the actions that people and businesses must take to operate.
In the case of Mexico City, the convoy left the National Auditorium at 10:00 am to advance on Paseo de la Reforma
According to Frena , this Sunday there will be a demonstration in Houston, Texas in front of the Mexican Consulate.
On May 7, businessman Pedro Luis Martín Bringas declared in a video published in the account @OfficialFrenaaa that he aims to remove López Obrador from his position as president.
We want FRENAAA to be the trigger for Mr. López Obrador to go home before December 1st and save this country, ”explains the businessman in the video.
After the recording was published, the Board of Directors of Soriana decided to remove Martín Bringas from that body in his capacity as alternate director.
The scenes have also been repeated in the city of Querétaro and in the municipality of San Juan del Río (Querétaro), where dozens of citizens aboard their vehicles, claim to disagree with the actions that the president has taken in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the rejection of the construction of the Maya Train or the brake on clean energy.
In San Luis Potosí, local media reported that hundreds of motorists have traveled the main avenues of the capital with the slogan “Obrador, Obrador, please go!” and signs with the requirement “AMLO go now” and “Get out AMLO”.
Coronavirus paints Mexico in RED
Despite the fact that as of this Friday, May 29, Mexico reported 84,627 accumulated confirmed cases of Covid-19, 16,209 active cases and 9,415 deaths since that same day the federal government itself presented a map of the country where 31 states (except Zacatecas) they are painted red , which means the maximum risk of contagion; Andrés Manuel López Obrador determined that as of June 1, the country will return to what it has called “the new normal”.
However, several specialists have warned that lifting confinement as infections continue to rise is a hasty decision.
“ In no way have we concluded the first wave (of contagion) in fact we have not even reached the plateau. According to daily technical reports, there is no evidence that the number of infections is already decreasing. What we have seen is that the epidemic is on the up and at least two weeks should go by without these increases to speak of a lack of confidence, “said Alejandro Macías, member of the commission of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) to attend the coronavirus and who spoke with El Universal .
“It seems to me that right now we cannot put an agenda on the virus (…) the pandemic is not yet going to make those kinds of plans,” he said.
The federal government’s decision has been severely questioned by specialists and journalists. One of the most critical positions was that of the communicator Ciro Gómez Leyva who, during his nightly newscast, questioned the decisions that the Mexican government made to face this health emergency and even described as “disastrous” the forecast made by the undersecretary of Prevention and Promotion of Health regarding how the disease would progress in the country.
“What would Mexicans have said when the National Sana Distancia Day was announced if they knew that at the end of the road, that is, that today the country would continue to be painted red? With signs of ‘stop’, ‘do not pass’, ‘do not do’, ‘do not leave’ … ‘do not live’ ”, he commented.
In addition, he presented a graph where he showed that the number of infections by the time the government expected the peak of the pandemic, that is, between May 6 and 8, was 1,830; However, he compared it with the cases registered on Friday, May 29, which were 3,227 people with the disease.
“83% higher than predicted by Dr. López-Gatell. On that forecast public policies were aligned, on that calculation, the arrival was projected on Monday, June 1, which has already arrived, which is already around the corner.
That is the disaster. Who is in charge of the lousy forecast in the government of President López Obrador? Nobody ” , he concluded
