Mexico on verge of revolution as election tribunal rejects full vote
recount. In a scene which was reminiscent of the US Supreme Court's
rejection of a Florida vote count in the 2000 presidential election, Mexico's
Federal Election Tribunal rejected a request by the Democratic Revolution Party
(PRD) and its presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador for a full
vote recount in the recent election that was plagued by fraud committed by the
neo-con National Action Party administration and supported by the Bush regime.
The tribunal merely voted to authorize a partial vote recount of 12,000 of 130,000
polling stations -- 9 percent of the polling places. Lopez Obrador walked out
of the tribunal session in protest over the decision.
Millions of Lopez Obrador and PRD supporters, including many of Mexico's poorest
citizens, closed down Mexico City's city center last Sunday. The Mexico City
mayor and the municipal administration are members of the PRD and Mexico City
police have resisted calls by PAN President Vicente Fox to clear out the protestors.
Protest camps have been set up on Zocalo Square and Paseo de la Reforma in the
heart of the city. WMR has received information from Mexico that the country
is on the verge of a popular revolution in support of Lopez Obrador.
Plans are being made for PRD supporters to occupy the Mexico City's Benito
Juarez International Airport, the Mexico City stock exchange, the Federal Election
Institute, and the Federal Election Tribunal offices. The revolution has already
taken hold in Oaxaca state, where the supporters of the Popular Assembly of
the People of Oaxaca (APPO) have taken control of a number of government buildings,
police vehicles, public buses, and other facilities. Zapatista supporters are
increasing their protest activities in Chiapas state. Chiapas and Oaxaca are
strong centers of support for the PRD and Lopez Obrador. Protests against the
election fraud have occurred in Xalapa, the capital of Veracruz state, which
borders on Oaxaca.
The events in Mexico have triggered into action the covert teams of
CIA agents working from bases in southern Texas that were poised to create civil
unrest among the Mexican right-wing in the event that Lopez Obrador won the
presidential election outright. Without even waiting for the contested
election to be certified, neo-con PAN candidate Felipe Calderon received congratulations
from his two NAFTA/North American Union allies, George W. Bush and Canadian
Tory Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Already, pro-PAN agitators, paid by the
Mexican federal government and CIA elements, have targeted PRD supporters in
acts of violence in cities like Monterrey, Sinaloa, and Tijuana. Pro-Lopez Obrador
protests are also expected in Los Angeles among the many Mexican immigrants
in the city.
