Guadalajara, Mexico, Jun 13 (efe-epa).- Amid the spike in infections due to the COVID-19 health emergency in Mexico, thousands of people demonstrated Saturday in at least a dozen states in the country, to demand the resignation of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO).

Guácala! Get out! AMLO!” and “I don’t know you, but we need each other to change Mexico,” as they honked their horns.

According to the organization, in addition to Jalisco, the mobilizations will take place in more than 120 cities, mainly in the states of Puebla, Morelos, Querétaro, Mexico State, Chihuahua, Sinaloa, Guanajuato, Veracruz and Sonora.
“We are organizing on this citizen front to ask for the resignation of the president because in one year and eight months the government has not worked a single day for Mexicans and has only attended to an agenda of ‘Bolivarian foreign countries,'” Iván told Efe. Mendoza, one of the protesters.
He noted that the intention of the Mexican president seeks to bring an agenda of “communism to Mexico” and “return of a dictator.”
In addition, he criticized the President’s Health policy for the COVID-19 pandemic that has caused “the disease to have spread throughout the country.”
Other protesters, such as Roberto Herrera, said that citizens are “tired and fed up” with the President’s economic policy, which has implemented programs such as “Youth Building the Future.”
“We are outraged because we are being withdrawn from some games that helped people, to give away money among his followers, this man (López Obrador) wants the youth fund to grow and he is a money dump, young people neither work nor they do nothing, “he said.
The nonconformists arrived at Casa Jalisco, residence of the Governor of Jalisco to show their support.
“López Obrador does not represent us,” was heard from the sound of one of the trucks that were part of the caravan.
A part of the large contingent stood at the foot of the roundabout of La Minerva, icon of the city, to shout slogans such as “Get out López!” and wave Mexican flags.
At the end of May, the first vehicle protest took place when hundreds of drivers marched in a caravan and honked their car horns on the main avenues of Mexico City and others in the country where they displayed banners with the slogan of the march. EFE -EPA
