Mexican President Brags About Denying Citizens Mining Jobs

While Australia contends with brush fires that have devastated the lives of Australians and can be attributed to environmentalists opposing controlled burns, Mexico’s far Left President President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (aka AMLO) is busily ruining the lives of the people of his country. Despite rampant poverty and crime in his country, AMLO’s latest act has put the brakes on mining concessions and fracking in Mexico costing Mexicans hundreds of jobs and directly or indirectly devastating countless Mexican lives.

Mexican president brags that his government hasn’t approved mining concessions

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador took pride in the fact that his administration hasn’t approved new mining concessions.

During a public event with Indigenous people in the central state of Puebla, López Obrador criticized the five administrations that preceded his for approving concessions that ceded 90 million hectares of land to mining companies. “[But] we have approved zero,” the left-wing politician said.

According to local media, the president -known by his initials AMLO- also said he is not going to betray his people and, therefore, he will not allow the use of fracking to extract oil and gas.
