Each day we will bring you an assortment of op-ed pieces from major Mexican dailies.


Jorge Fernández Menéndez

A rumor has circulated in social networks claiming  that Los Zetas may have caused  the explosion in Pemex as a way to confront, challenge, or intimidate the new federal government .  Although the rumor is believable, the truth is not that logical.  Unless the Zetas as a criminal group are in a much more advanced period of decline than thought, it would be illogical for them to diverge attention from their priorities and focus in this type of violence.


El Universal

John J. Bailey

The history behind the Boston Tea Party and taxation without representation goes far beyond a group of  American colonists who disagreed with the tax on tea  imposed by the British government. In fact,  the the protest was caused by  the strong measures created by the British parliament against the colonists’ main source of commerce in the new world– contraband activities. The ironic part of this story is that the United States now defends intellectual property and pressures Latin American governments to enforce strong measures that can prosecute businessmen who steal intellectual property and traffic illegal products.


La Jornada

Clase Politica

After the terrible accident from last Thursday at the Pemex headquarters, the main issue in the national politics is and will be the handling domestic oil. The PRD and the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) maintain their total opposition to the reforms proposed by the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto, considering that the reform will lead to the privatization of Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex).
