The Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) openly rejected the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Francisco Martínez Neri, PRD coordinator for the Chamber of Deputies, said that the agreement only looks to implement a neoliberal economic model, which failed with the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

“The TPP wants to strengthen the failed NAFTA model. We will oppose this government accion,” Martínez Neri said.

He said that left-party politicians’ job is to fight the neoliberalism of great world powers. In Latin America, this is mainly represented by the United States.

Vice-coordinator of the PRD in the Senate Dolores Padierna Luna criticized the current administration for its lack of economic growth, security and for its violation of human rights.

“The most dramatic and documented cases happen here: the Tlatlaya and Ayatzingán killings, the disappearance of the 43 Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers College students in Guerrero and the recent case of the young people disappeared by police officers in Tierra Blanca, Veracruz. Instead of assuming the responsibility for the crisis, Enrique Peña Nieto’s government washes its hands of it and launches a diplomatic campaign against international organizations,” the PRD vice-coordinator said.

Padierna Luna said that this is a difficult time for left-wing members in Mexico, because they are not united and are being pulverized under an efficient strategy which debilitates, divides and coopts them.
