85th anniversary of the Oil Exprociation is commemorated amid ‘frictions’ with descendants of Lázaro Cárdenas
The commemoration for the Oil Expropriation takes place just about a month after the grandson of former President Cárdenas, Lázaro Cárdenas Batel, will resign as head of Advisors to work in the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).
However, President López Obrador explained that Cárdenas Batel will continue to support the Government of Mexico despite the fact that his father, Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas, joined the Collective for Mexico and would be considered an adversary to his obradorista movement.
