In his morning conference, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), spoke about the meeting of international far-right figures, which will take place on November 18 and 19 and will take place in Mexico City.

The Conservative Action Political Conference (CPAC) is an annual event that has already sparked controversy over the figures that will serve as exhibitors, but according to the federal leader it does not harm his administration and would even be useful to expose conservative thought.

“It does not harm us at all, I would say that on the contrary, it helps us in this plan that we have to inform, guide how conservatives think, how they are racist, how they are class-minded, how they discriminate, how they are very corrupt , how they have no scruples of any kind, how they are very supporters of violence,” he said in La Mañanera this Wednesday.

However, according to the shared data, the tickets for said meeting are already sold out, for which the attendees had to pay 1,200 pesos for access to conferences and work sessions. In addition to platinum tickets, which for 20,000 pesos guarantee direct interaction with the exhibitors.

To complete the list of figures such as far-right stars, Eduardo Bolsonaro, son of the outgoing president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, will be another of the exhibitors, a deputy who has been criticized more than once among them for uploading a video to their networks criticizing the Argentine economic situation.

And on the other hand Steve Bannon, the former strategist of former President Donald Trump, who will travel to Mexico at a time when he is appealing the four months in prison he was sentenced to in the United States for contempt of Congress, by refusing to appear during the hearings on the assault on the Capitol.

“If all these characters come, they have all the freedoms that are guaranteed in Mexico to meet, to demonstrate, to express themselves,” added the president about this organization. He mentioned that authoritarian behavior should be discussed and exposed, noting that otherwise “it’s like putting garbage under the rug or under the mat.”
