Mexico confirms its support for Castillo
López Obrador indicated that “Mexico will continue to support the unjustly and illegally ousted president and will continue to demand that he be released.”. He cannot be in jail, it is a great injustice”.
I received it. She is an exceptional woman, a humble, good woman, who came to thank me for what was done with them, to tell me about her children who are already studying, her 10-year-old daughter, her 14-year-old son,” the president narrated.
“We are trying that they do not lack anything, help them, she is full of feeling and well, also asking us not to abandon her husband. We consider that it was a great injustice to have removed him from his post because he was elected by the people, and the Peruvian conservatives also violated the Constitution,” she said.
The Mexican ruler reiterated his accusation that the now president of Peru, Dina Boluarteis a “spurious president.”
He also condemned the death of about 60 people, according to his calculations, in the protests against the Boluarte government.
I have seen polls where the spurious president has 15% acceptance, 85% disapprove. But she still has less approval from Congress, the deputies. They have 90% of the rejection, 90%, and even so they rule with bayonets, with repression, with force, ”she maintained.
The president insisted that behind the dismissal of Castillo “there is unfortunately a lot of racism and classismand many vested interests in Peru because it is a country with many natural resources and those natural resources are highly coveted by large transnational companies, supported by foreign governments”.
He also questioned the alleged silence of the Organization of American States (OAS) in the face of the crisis.
The OAS and its human rights organization are at the service of the powerful,” he said.
