The Marches of November

The anti-Obrador day of November 13 was the largest mass mobilization convened by an opposition front of the current six-year term. Under the pretext of defending the National Electoral Institute (INE) and democracy, a motley coalition of anti-AMLO center-right forces managed to bring out to the streets several tens of thousands of citizens, many dressed in white and pink, almost all over the country.

Criminalization of HR Defenders Continues

Despite election promises to the contrary, militarization under Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s 4T government continues. The most recent example of this was the handover of control of the National Guard to SEDENA. This process of militarization assumes more sinister tones with recent revelations from the “Guacamaya Leaks” that the military continue to monitor defenders and journalists, and in the state of Guerrero, social defenders, including the attorney for the relatives of the 43 disappeared student teachers in the Ayotzinapa case, are being targeted for criminalization. We share the statement of collectives and individuals in response to this latest attack.

The 4T Against the Grain

“At a glance, the 4T looks more and more like a regime not of transformation, but of continuity with respect to the previous ones. It is not enough to repeat the refrain that “we are not the same” to hide a reality in which what stands out is a dynamic of militarization, concentration of power, attack on autonomous bodies, the press and rights defenders; the persistence of violence, the continuity of espionage and, as we have recently seen, the recurrence of practices of co-optation of the partisan opposition in the Congress.”
