    • News

In this episode Jake and Jim get a crash course in Mexican politics and the current conditions that besiege President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO).
Arturo is a Marxist activist and PhD candidate in Germany but has also been involved with a coalition of the German left as well as a formerly very-active member of the Popular socialist party of Mexico, a party involved in the coalition to elect AMLO.
In this interview, Arturo explains why AMLO still has his support in the face of real material conditions and explains why Mexico will need to make gradual moves to release themselves from US hegemony.
We also discuss the Coronavirus response in Mexico and why AMLO's rules are basically essential to the Mexican economy as well as what the return to the neoliberal "normal" under Biden means for US-Mexico relations.
