While the World Soccer Cup begins in Brazil, Mexican legislators approved the secondary laws of the energy reform bill, which would allow foreign companies to own not only oil, gas and electricity, but also water, farmland, forests, rivers and seas. Senators who opposed this decision said with this new legislation many towns won’t be able to protect themselves thus making the expropriation of the land easier. In addition, activists remember the assassination of students at a student demonstration in Mexico City in 1971 and condemned the largest television network, Televisa, for the lack of truthful information about the country’s issues. Martha Elena Ramirez hosts this edition from Mexico City.
