Gael García against AMLO in the face of the LeBarón family massacre

Great dismay has been caused by the assassination of the Le Barón Family, a regrettable massacre that took place on Monday in the borders of the states of Sonora and Chihuahua. In Twitter Gael García Bernal expressed his feelings, because once again a bloody event marks Mexico.

"It makes you want to close the country every now and then, how sad. Every femicide, every murder, every injustice against children and old people. Terrible what happened yesterday, what happens every day, damn it. What sadness," Gael García wrote in a first tuit.

The actor and film producer questioned why they voted for Andrés Manuel López Obrador, if all these unfortunate events continued in our country.

If the government doesn't change and López Obrador changes the narrative to assume his responsibilities, why the fuck do we vote for you?

"It is better that you assume your responsibility completely and do the impossible so that this does not happen again. Let it become your mantra and your goal," Gael Garcia said in a second post on his Twitter account.

Several users of the aforementioned social network criticized the filmmaker, since he was one of the people who supported AMLO's presidential campaign. "Shall we vote? No, sir, I do think and analyze, I do love my family and my country. They voted foolishly, ignorantly, blindly. Those are the ones who provoked all this. Demand now, don't just point worried at your useless monkey. Congratulations, you all blew up the country.

LeBarón Family Massacre

The brutal attack on a Mormon family on a highway in northern Mexico left nine dead (six children and three women), seven minors injured, and one minor allegedly missing, all of them Mexican and U.S. citizens.

According to the head of the Secretariat of Public Safety and Protection (SSPC), Alfonso Durazo, the event occurred last Monday at noon on a state highway in the border states of Sonora and Chihuahua, practically on the border with the United States. In the convoy were allegedly traveling three women and 14 minors, who were moving from Galeana, Chihuahua to Bavispe, Sonora, when they were attacked by an armed group.

The convoy (of the LeBarón family) may have been confused by criminal groups disputing control in the region. Julian LeBarón, activist and close friend of the deceased, considered that the event had nothing to do with a direct attack on the family or a family conflict.
