Mexican Foreign Minister denounces Almagro's tenure at the OAS

The Secretary of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, Marcelo Ebrard, criticized this Friday at a press conference the management of the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, calling it "one of the worst in the history of the organization."

"The performance of the current secretary general of the OAS, Mr. Almagro, has been one of the worst in history, and we have said so in the sessions," Ebrard said, noting that the OAS electoral observation mission is welcome to Mexico, despite Almagro.

"In the first place, he has acted without consulting the member states: he acts as if he were autonomous, independent, or he assumes that he does not need to consult the member states; it has been a recurrent problem during his administration," he warned.

Ebrard also commented on Almagro's role with the OAS in Bolivia's political crisis following the 2019 elections and expressed his dissatisfaction with the secretary general's position.

"There are dubious and questionable actions to intervene in internal processes as was the case of Bolivia, which was opprobrious, where they practically facilitated a coup in a country with a democratic life in recent years," said the foreign minister.

Almagro's role in facilitating the November 2019 coup against then-Bolivian President Evo Morales, by endorsing electoral fraud allegations - as well as the year-long de facto regime that followed - tarnished his 6-year tenure at the OAS.

The OAS has been increasingly seen by critics as a rubber stamp for neo-con U.S. policy in Latin America, which under the Trump administration seemed to revert to the era of coups and intrigue that marred U.S.-Latin American relations from the 1950s to the 1980s.

1. So good to see what the Mexican Minister of Foreign Affairs have stated about OAS' Luis Almagro.

It was horrific when the Secretary General actually condoned the overthrow of the Bolivian President through a violent assault by the loathesome, greedy, racist seperatist elites who comprise the very white elites who control the Half Moon of Bolivia. Their violent hatred and contempt for the majority of Bolivians has been in place since the bloody invasion hundreds of years ago, and their ongoing violence and endless abuse are impossible to overlook.

That the Secretary General actually allowed this to happen, with his blessings, is nothing but a crime.

Thank goodness the immoral and illegal action did not remain in place.

Deepest appreciation is felt toward the series of statements already shared by the courageous Mexican Secretary Marcelo Ebrard.

Thanks for the great news that Almagro got his ears pinned back publically again, peppertree. Hope Ebrard will continue to point out his lack of substance always expected for someone in his position.

2. Kicking for a brave Foreign Affairs Minister, Sec. Ebrard, who dares stand up to fascists' OAS pet.


Political view of Almagro by Pancho Cajas.

Almagro's new hair, designed by Trump's stylist?
