MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s leftist Zapatista movement is continuing its aggressive criticism of the country’s new president, accusing Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) of dishonesty and vowing to confront him.
Zapatista spokesman Subcomandante Moises reiterated the group’s opposition to some of Lopez Obrador’s big projects such as the “Maya Train,” which would run in part between the beach resorts of Cancun and the Palenque ruins in the state of Chiapas (where the Zapatistas headquarters is located).
The criticisms came as the Zapatistas celebrated the 25th anniversary of their brief armed uprising in 1994. The group continues to push for greater rights for Mexico’s indigenous.
Through their spokesperson, they declared on Monday Dec. 31st, they are not calling for people to take up arms, but they plan to organize opposition in a political way.
The Zapatistas have long been at odds with Lopez Obrador. They boycotted the 2006 presidential election in which he narrowly lost.
