The Mexican president said that the application of fines to protesters in Argentina is authoritarianism that will not work.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador criticized this Friday the “authoritarianism” of the Government of Argentina in the face of protests against the economic measures of that country’s new president, Javier Milei, who has proposed sanctions and jail for protesters.

The Mexican leader referred to the growing mobilizations against Milei’s economic measures that have multiplied in recent days in Buenos Aires and other cities in Argentina.

In this context, he questioned the proposals announced by the Argentine Executive against demonstrations, such as fines for destruction on public roads and up to six years in prison for organizers of demonstrations.

“The right, conservatism, is very authoritarian and they want to impose themselves by force to subdue and, in addition, produce and generate fear and that no one goes out and that no one protests or that, if they do protest, it is with clenched teeth, that is why the repressive attitudes,” he explained.

López Obrador, who has previously called Milei a “conservative brat,” called his government’s actions “hypocrisy” following the “freedom” narrative of his presidential campaign.

“I think that they will only realize it, even those who voted thinking that there was going to be a change and that (he promised) freedom. Imagine, using the discourse of freedom and then preventing freedom, denying freedom, conditioning freedom, but that’s how they are, the true doctrine of the right is hypocrisy,” he pointed out.

“How did Milei say? The caste is going to fall, things like that, the caste is afraid. Well, the caste is the one that is there now, the one that is with him and the people are the ones that are paying the consequences,” she added.

The president of Mexico celebrated that the main trade union center in Argentina, the General Confederation of Labor (CGT), of Peronist inspiration, has called for a national strike.

He also reiterated his criticism against Milei’s economic measures, whose decree of necessity and urgency (DNU) comes into force this Friday to deregulate a large part of the Argentine economy.

“In Argentina and throughout the continent, (I ask) that there be no repression, but these policies are very anti-popular and selfish, putting (state) companies up for sale,” said López Obrador.
