Please click here to sign your name below this “Message to the People of Mexico from People in the United States.”
We will send this petition, along with thousands of signatures, to Mexican media and organizations. The message will be delivered in both Spanish and English.
Our message begins:
“Unlike President Trump, we wish you well. Not ill. And we send good wishes to your incoming, progressive president, Mr. Lopez Obrador, whom you've elected in an historic landslide to carry out your will to reduce inequality, corruption and violence.
"Unlike President Trump, we do not scapegoat you for problems in our country. Unlike President Trump, we are proud to be a multiracial country and proud of the contributions made to our country by generations of Mexican immigrants. We are appalled by the separation of children from their parents at the border. And we do not support erecting a wall between our two countries.”
Yes, I am signing on to this message, telling the people of Mexico that Trump does not speak for us.
The message finishes with these paragraphs:
“Unlike President Trump, who received only 46 percent of votes cast and three million votes less than a competing candidate, we recognize that your incoming president earned the support of a strong majority of Mexican voters.
"We vow to do our part to allow you, the people of Mexico, to determine your own political future. We know the dreadful history of our government’s bullying interventions in the internal affairs of Latin American countries – and that our government has used phrases like ‘human rights,’ ‘pro-democracy’ and ‘war on drugs’ to prettify interventions that have brought corporate exploitation, militarism, chaos, and even dictatorship to other countries.
"We send good wishes to the people of Mexico and to President-Elect Lopez Obrador.”
I am adding my name to this petition, and I am forwarding this email to my friends and family for them to sign.
