“We disqualify any violent act, we are pacifists, no one will be censured (…) full freedoms are guaranteed, the right to dissent and we condemn any threat that is made even on our behalf,” the representative said. 
The president accepted that while there are differences with the group Reform his government would never perform a repressive act against him. 
“They are the most genuine representatives of conservative thinking in Mexico and oppose transformation because they want to maintain the regime of corruption and privilege,” he added, speaking about the medium.
However, he said, that his government is not authoritarian and that it will always guarantee full freedoms and the right to dissent.
