Mexico: AMLO Moving On?

After writing an open letter which asks the former Mexico City mayor and presidential candidate to be more tolerant in his civil disobedience, Ricardo Carreón says there are now signs that Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador is moving on despite his own rhetoric. Ana Maria Salazar derives the same conclusion in her post, “what to expect from AMLO in the next couple of weeks.” León Felipe Sánchez was frustrated by a protest on the México-Acapulco highway that shut down a toll booth (ES): “although you may not believe it, I really wanted to pay the toll because, although it is true that it's a crime to charge us what they do for driving on this poorly maintained highway, it doesn't seem right to me that we take advantage of the [political] situation to save some money.”
