President Andrés Manuel López Obrador called, next Sunday, November 27, for a march whose objective is to celebrate his four years in government, of which self-driven changes and of which he will speak that same day.
Given these facts, through social networks, different characters, politicians and organizations have called on those attending the event to wear a ‘pink tide’, using a garment of that color to make it clear to the Chief Executive that “INE does not touch itself”.
On Monday, the former president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, Vicente Fox Quesada, joined the initiative to wear pink to express himself against the electoral reform promoted by Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
“Just dress in pink and white, and lead your normal life, go eat, go out, go to the movies, go to mass… whatever you do, but dress in pink and white. Maybe AMLO is going to fill the socket, we paint all the cities and all sides of a pink tide” was Fox’s invitation to the people in what would be a supposed defense of the National Electoral Institute.
‘Pink tide’ against the electoral reform: This is what AMLO thinks
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was questioned about the initiative to wear pink to show rejection of the electoral reform, and He said that “everyone is free” how to dress.
In his morning conference on Monday, November 21, López Obrador accused that the November 13 march was organized by minorities, and that basically they did not do it to express themselves in defense of the INEbut to show himself against his government.
“They are in favor of minorities, privatization, corruption. They are in favor of marginalizing the people, ”he said.
The businessman Claudio X. González and other opponents disseminated the initiative to meet the day of the march that López Obrador will lead.
