The Mexican Nationalist Front (Spanish: Frente Nacional Mexicanista), formerly known as the Organization for the National Will (Spanish: Organización por la Voluntad Nacional), is a far right Mexican nationalist group, known for its exaltation of Mexico's Pre-Columbian past and its use of National Socialist paraphernalia. The Mexican Nationalist Front claims it was formed by people coming from different political tendencies, social positions and cultural backgrounds who fight legally and peacefully for the national renewal of their country and for the unity of the Mexican nation.

Beliefs[edit]

Supporters of the Mexican Nationalist Front and other far-right protesters in Mexico City, 2010.

The front opposes Anglo-American culture influences,[1] abortion, gay marriage, and the presence of Evangelical and Protestant religions in Mexico.

They reject the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and what they regard as the American occupation of territory that originally belonged to Mexico (the Southwestern United States).

On its website, the front states:

"We reject the occupation of our nation in its northern territories, an important cause of poverty and emigration. We demand that our claim to all the territories occupied by force by the United States be recognized in our Constitution, and we will bravely defend, according to the principle of self-determination to all peoples, the right of the Mexican people to live in the whole of our territory within its historical borders, as they existed and were recognized at the moment of our independence."[1]

They also advocate the Second Mexican Empire and deplore the establishment of the republic.[2]

Ideologically, it proposes a Distributist economy, socialization and the Third-Positionist ideology as an alternative to both Communism and Capitalism.

The organization promotes Central America's reincorporation into Mexico and calls for Mexico to withdraw from the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), World Trade Organization (WTO), the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the World Bank.

Goals[edit]

On its website, the group opposes violence and states that its primary goal is to win Mexicans' approval and adherence to their Nationalist points of view. Their motto is Fatherland, Empire, Socialism.
