They’re baaaaaack…

28 June 2020

One point of ire for the big business community is the AMLO administration’s efforts to force businesses to pay their current and back taxes, in order to provide much-needed government revenue.

The old Mexican fascist families (the Abascals), right-wing journalists, anti-Semites, Legionaries of Christ, the Washington Post (!!!– Carlos Loret de Mola), your handy dandy guide to the “Frente Anti-AMLO” … claiming 2 million members (which works out to about 1.66% of the Mexican populace). Unfortunately, it’s the one (point six) percenters who benefit the most from the old regime, and have most of the money.

Meet the far-right oligarchs working to topple Mexico’s progressive President AMLO

A Trump-like Mexican oligarch, Gilberto Lozano, is leading a coalition of corporate leaders and far-right fanatics called FRENA to try to overthrow President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
By José Guadalupe Argüello III and Ben Norton

Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s victory in Mexico’s 2018 presidential election marked a historic feat, promising a respite from a roughly 40-year period of continuous neoliberal rule over the country.

López Obrador, better known as AMLO, is taking Mexico down a new route toward greater national autonomy. Under a revolutionary process that he calls the Fourth Transformation, he is fighting systemic corruption and rampant theft of public resources, while boosting social benefits for the poor.

Read it and weep.
