Mexico, 20 Sep 2020 (AFP) – Dozens of opponents of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador organized a protest on a central avenue in Mexico City against the president’s handling of the covid-19 pandemic and the economy.

The demonstration tried to reach the Zócalo in Mexico City on Saturday – the country’s most important public square, in front of the government headquarters – but the local police prevented them from passing, so the protesters decided to stay overnight on a nearby avenue.

The forecast is that this Sunday they will try to reach Zócalo again.

With banners that say “Fora com AMLO” (as the president is known by his acronym) and Mexican flags, the group, called “Frente Nacional Anti-AMLO”, questions López Obrador’s handling of the new pandemic of coronavirus, which has so far left 694,121 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 73,258 deaths in the country, in addition to the economic crisis.

The group has already made several demonstrations in the capital to demand the resignation of the president by questioning its policies and economic decisions.
