The Nationalist Front of Mexico (Spanish: Frente Nacionalista de México), formerly known as the Organization for the National Will (Spanish: Organización por la Voluntad Nacional) and the Mexican Nationalist Front (Spanish: Frente Nacional Mexicanista), is a far-right Mexican nationalist group, known for its exaltation of Mexico's pre-Columbian past and its use of National Socialist paraphernalia. Since its formation in 2006, the Nationalist Front of Mexico 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.
It opposes Anglo-American culture and influences and rejects the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, as well as what its members consider the "American occupation" of territory formerly belonging to Mexico and now form 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."
Similarly, it promotes the reincorporation of Central America to Mexico, advocates the Second Mexican Empire, and deplores the establishment of the republic, which it considers decadent and against the nation. In recent years, the group has gained notoriety for honoring Maximilian I of Mexico and conservatives of the 19th century such as Miguel Miramón and Tomás Mejía Camacho.
Ideologically, it proposes a distributist economy, socialization and the Third-Positionist ideology as an alternative to both communism and capitalism. The group also wants 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.
In its official website, the organization declares its opposition to all forms of violence and states that its primary goal is to win Mexicans' approval and adherence to their nationalist points of view, in addition to influencing legislation and participate in the national political debate. For the Nationalist Front of Mexico, "practical philosophy and political organization of our native (indigenous) peoples are an example of what Mexico can become a national socialist government under freedom from colonialism and post-modernism stale of our time". Although the group has gained notoriety for exalting the pre-Hispanic past of Mexico and use a likeness of paraphernalia National Socialism it is not a political party and cannot nominate candidates directly.
