AMLO once again refers to Peru and defends Pedro Castillo

The president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), on Tuesday asked the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac) for a joint statement against what I call “repression” in Peru.

“We must not leave the brotherly people of Peru alone, what they did with Pedro Castillo and the way in which they are repressing the people was an infamy,” declared the president in a message that he sent on video to the Celac Summit that is being held in Buenos Aires, the EFE Agency reported.

López Obrador indicated that “a communiqué must be jointly signed to demand that the repression cease, that dialogue be opened, that it be the people who decide in democracy, that is, in clean, free elections, about the destiny of Peru.”

In addition, he once again advocated for former President Pedro Castillo, who carried out a coup. “No to authoritarianism and freedom to Pedro Castillo, because he is unjustly imprisoned,” he said.

The Mexican president is one of the main absentees from the Celac Summit in Argentina, a country that currently holds the pro tempore presidency, with representatives of the 33 member countries, including fifteen heads of state or government.

In his message, the president also reiterated his solidarity with the president of Brazil, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silvaafter the overthrow attempt by supporters of former president Jair Bolsonaro who on January 8 assaulted the headquarters of the three State powers in Brasilia.

“We cannot accept attempts, much less coups d’état, neither military nor technical, freedom and authentic democracy must be respected, it is the people who rule in democracy, not the oligarchies,” he stressed.
