Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador attacked the political opposition and criticized marchers that had packed a historic square in the nation’s capital to protest his electoral overhaul, heightening tensions in Latin America’s second-largest economy. 

“Strictly speaking, democracy is not important to them,” AMLO, as the president is known, said at a press briefing on Monday. “Yesterday’s march and the ones that will come have the goal of confronting us, because they don’t want the country to transform. They want to keep stealing.”
