Communist Party of Mexico: No more confidence in the government of López Obrador!

In a recent statement, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Mexico refers to the deterioration of the living standards of the country's working class and underlines the necessity of an offensive against the rule of capital and the social democratic government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador. 

The statement reads:

At the beginning of the year, there was a sharp increase in the cost of living, which reached about 7%. In this situation, the 2022 wage increase did not have a significant effect, and there are still workers who have not yet received the wage change. This implied a higher cost for the workers, who were also affected by the loss of benefits and working conditions during the pandemic. 

This has forced workers to cut back on consumption of some goods and services, or to work even longer hours to maintain their real incomes. Halfway through the year, inflation is considered by specialists to be uncontrollable, as it is currently around 7.5 per cent, but is expected to reach 10 per cent by the end of the year. In concrete terms, the basic food basket has shot up to 27% and this is taking its toll on the pockets of working families.

We condemn the participation of the Mexican State in inter-imperialist military exercises and the strengthening of forces of repression.

PCM-PCPE Joint Statement: Exposing the role of Obrador and Sánchez governments

On the occasion of the official visit of the Prime Minister of the Spanish Government to Mexico, the Communist Party of Mexico and the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain, united by a fraternal relationship based on the principles of proletarian internationalism, made this public statement.

1. Imperialism has entered a particularly dangerous stage, in which all contradictions increase and the risk of a worldwide confrontation between the different imperialist powers and blocs, in full dispute for a new division of the world, increases. The visit of the Spanish PM to Mexico and the signing of several joint statements between both governments are fully framed in this global dispute, in which both governments defend the interests of the bourgeoisie.
