The applause was not for Enrique Peña Nieto, announcing the passage of constitutional “reforms” that will change the oil industry here, but for Daniel Vázquez Aguilar, who had just called the President a whore (puto) while asking (loudly, one must admit) why the people were not consulted about those radical changes considered so necessary that they had to be pushed through with almost no debate in 84 hours over a weekend.

I expect we’ll be seeing much more push-back and resistance beyond the revived PRD-leftist coalition (FAP) plans to challenge the “reforms” in court.

    Mexico, less you forget when you invited Norte Americanos to settle the vast expanses of Texas, you did not expect to be overrun and usurped, eventually losing almost half of your country, ten years later. You better have controls in place so that private oil investment companies mainly from the U.S. will not cause a twenty first century repeat!!

    Sr. Hernandez, many have found that “no good deed goes unpunished,” especially between nation states.
