Mexico City. March 25, 2009
Mrs. Hillary Clinton
Secretary of State
Government of the United States of America
Esteemed Mrs. Clinton:
From our point of view, the problems of insecurity and violence in our country have arisen from the prevailing corruption and impunity, and because there hasn’t been economic growth for 26 years and millions of youths have been marginalized from education and haven’t had work opportunities.
You surely know that all of this began when a group of about 30 traffickers of influence and corrupt politicians, using the cover of so-called neoliberal economic policies, took control of the Mexican State, as well as a good part of national and so-called public goods. And these policies of pillaging that has enriched a minority in an exaggerated and obscene manner, in a way that has not occurred in any other part of the world, has condemned the Mexican people to exile and survival.
That is why we believe that it is an error to want to confront the problems of insecurity and violence with only an iron fist, with soldiers, with prisons, with tougher laws, and with stiffer penalties. The solution to the scourge of criminality lies in rescuing the State, in changing the current economic model, and in guaranteeing the people better living and working conditions. It can’t be forgotten that peace and tranquility are fruits of justice.
Andrés Manuel López Obrador
Legitimate President of Mexico
