Faced with these situations, it was decided not to expose more members of the organization but they will continue with their objective by sharing a call to meet next Saturday, November 21 at the monument of the Revolution to plan their new protest.
The sit-in was installed on September 19 to request the resignation of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
On October 5, the Head of Government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, made an irony about the campaigns placed by FRENA in the Zócalo of the country’s capital.
“Maybe it’s a performance, it’s also worth it. But it is different to say that it is a sit-in to a performance, ”he said during his daily videoconference.
Previously, Sheinbaum Pardo invited the members of the movement to occupy the tents and not just leave them installed on the grid of the capital’s Zócalo.
“Well, I would rather say that they occupy their stores, because it is very easy to put a lot of shops and say that there are many people,” he said.
On October 24, hundreds of supporters of the President of Mexico took to the streets of the capital to give their support to the president in front of the opposition camp that for a month has been asking for his resignation in the central square of the Zócalo.
With shouts of “You are not alone!” and “It is an honor to be with Obrador!”, the protesters left the emblematic Angel of Independence and marched towards the Zócalo, where the National Palace stands, the residence of López Obrador since he assumed power in 2018 with the leftist Regeneration Movement National (Brunette).
In the square they ran into the more than 300 tents of the far-right National Front Anti Andrés Manuel López Obrador (Frena), which since September 23 has been demanding the removal of López Obrador from power and the calling of new elections.
There the protesters exchanged shouts, reproaches and insults, but the fences and the police cordon around the camp prevented clashes.
