Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the Movimiento Regeneración Nacional (MORENA) party and Juntos Haremos Historia coalition gives a speech during the public meeting at the Children Heroes Plaza on February 11, 2017 in Guadalajara, Mexico.
Obrador “holds 38% of the vote” – and has an 18 point lead. Date of Election July 1st.
“We are going to be very respectful toward the United States government, but we are also going to demand that (the U.S.) respect Mexicans.”
“Neither Mexico nor its people will be the piñata of any foreign government,” he said.
“Lopez Obrador is breaking his ceiling … he’s growing in a way that wasn’t expected,” said Parametría founder Francisco Abundis.
"Those who defend the current economic model talk about modernity, but they don’t mention that this ‘modernity’ is a synonym for the economy of the elite, one that benefits only a minority and excludes the majority," he added. "They tend to put up the supposed benefits of NAFTA as an example, but the few benefits have come at an extremely high cost."
"Social problems and security issues are not solved by walls and force. Those problems are solved by economic development."
I’m just guessing that this guy is already on the CIA hit list.
