On Friday Jan. 20, the Social Encounter Party (PES) in Yucatan plans to hold a peaceful demonstration without closing roads to protest Donald Trump’s foreign policy, and proposes five measures to boost the Mexican economy.
The demonstration will start at 11 a.m. in front of the Ford dealership located on Prolongación Montejo a block north of Monumento a la Patria, and will then proceed to the United States Consulate in Merida, on Calle 60 North.
The demonstration will take place as Trump is being sworn in as 45th president of the U.S. in Washington, D.C.
PES reported in a statement that the reason for this action is: “On Friday Donald Trump assumes the presidency of the United States and as we all know has had a negative policy and expression against Mexicans. The most recent act was to threaten Ford that if it built a factory in San Luis Potosí (he) would charge high taxes for each car that enters the United States, which caused Ford to cancel the contract with the Government of San Luis Potosí that would have generated about 2,800 direct jobs in addition to 10,000 indirect jobs.
Social Encounter proposes a peaceful demonstration, without closing roads, and proposes to boost the local economy through five actions:
1-Visit and promote the archaeological zones of Mexico.
2-Consume the products in the local markets.
3-Buy handicrafts made in Mexico.
4-Support local and newly created companies.
5-If Trump does not believe in Mexico, we do.
The emerging political party invites participation by Mexican businessmen, travel agencies, artisans, and the general public.
“Help us with your participation as no wall will stop us,” concluded a press release from Social Encounter.
The Partido Encuentro Social, or Social Encounter Party, was founded in 2006 by the pastor of a Neo-Pentecostal church that supported Felipe Calderón in that year’s presidential election. It obtained national status in 2014. The party’s membership is reportedly composed mostly of evangelical Christians.
