3:08 pm
for mexicans passions run high over oil because they run deep. in the same square where today people are protesting the privatization of oil they gathered in one thousand nine hundred thirty eight to celebrate its export creation from foreign companies who controlled mexico's oil in the opening decades of the twentieth century.
3:09 pm
yeah but if you have a few you know that's what you ask is what i want to do with. the foreign oil companies insisted on compensation. the mexican people gave up their possessions to pay off the bed. the oil was now thayer's. seventy five years later the people's only leasing jeopardy. foreign companies are once again poised to drill on mexican soil. and it's the farmers who have the most to lose. if. that's ok that. you know if it be that good uppercut got up to the father and. mother get you know what he got that d.n.a.
3:10 pm
look at the bit about it even not out about oh ok. mexico's farmers are suffering the worst crisis the countryside has seen in twenty years. they're in danger of losing their livelihoods. under the energy reforms they could also lose their land. rush for four. years on that and it was a little bit more because. it's almost like someone up there was this they're saying you know this there was one last year give you must use and all those are your most significant has a little you know. what i called the well known one my. like a lot. of a more like i knew. that when i live here yeah yeah they or you or they wouldn't know the mother in. law me. what changed twenty years ago for
3:11 pm
mexico's farmers were nafta a treaty that ohp. mexico to foreign trade led to the collapse of agriculture and helped pave the way for the privatization of oil we are creating the largest richest and most productive market in the entire world. nafta the north american free trade agreement was promised as mexico's ticket to the big time. in making. opening mexico's market to u.s. and canadian companies was going to bring prosperity do. instead there have been winners. and losers. multinationals have made handsome profit. while many farmers have lost everything.
3:12 pm
and don't use of it on head of the citrus growers in the mexican state of veracruz recalls how nafta's promises turned sour. i moved from boys you mean to eliminate all. your solos at the hands of your book as moments. really much as mine each one of the two members of the thirty minute c.s.u. movement of his you know but i'm a book of months. but i'm just a month. now after inflicted two blows to mexico's farmers. cheap subsidized u.s. produce flooding the market. and the rise of the supermarkets paying rock bottom prices to mexican farmers. the outcome a handful of growers controlling production and a loss of more than two million agricultural jobs. will give me get out
3:13 pm
a lot. more that may well us who lives want to get us real good tell us without this is what i mean for quarter of the most real money goes wrong or kept pork in what you are a million example. of the stance here. for those who remain and still work the land like orange grove dearest alive has become a struggle for survival. love and love another dollar or mercy or the heart of any fish they are all here on this part of the daughters that are an environment there that are there no problem. with darkness while most indian woman yes you are on that are you not me is not it was your this said. does your mother must. your cover more choice on vine your arse on locus of denial of and none of our guns about other things are. ok thought the ample and it
3:14 pm
. was a. dollar a day and one of those are porous. and innocent little by the north are. now after has widened the gap between rich and poor. for most mexicans free trade with foreign companies has come at a heavy price. the prospect of more of the same under the new energy reforms looks like history repeating itself. this country has been right many times every night saddam has in mind the role that the spaniards sprain have here and the americans and other foreign businesspeople who have come here are perceived as being potential rapist in mind of the average mexican citizen you need to keep that in my oil is the symbol of that potential right. mexico's president and
3:15 pm
be giving and yet there is waiting a publicity campaign claiming his reforms will usher in a new era of prosperity. is that reform represent the level of muslim this will put to me that this but i mean he could. use separate channel system on a board to be out. secure and simple zimmy listen we will simply else equal nikolay saleratus she gave almost like i was fed a form. of the loose evil guys who went behind it but it was for peace and this consequence here mr campbell proceed a mass ah but i must tell him into space yes. and there's something for the multinational companies to. share in the profit bonanza from sixty billion barrels of mexican oil. it's a black gold rush that has companies beating a path to the door of consulting firms like control risks it's the last frontier
3:16 pm
that has been opened for private investment basically every other country in the world including countries like cuba have allowed foreign investment in their oil reserves mexico had not and potentially mexico has enormous reserves particularly in deep water plays that will require investment by private companies are to be exploited. antonio guterres a former us ambassador to mexico now legal adviser to u.s. oil companies is selling a bright future in mexico to his clients obviously energy companies are excited by the prospect of investing in mexico they see the risk return is very attractive they've done business in foreign markets they recognize that this is one proximate to the u.s. there's a very real sense that mexico's a rocket about to live. as foreign oil companies prepared to celebrate the profits
3:17 pm
still make from the reforms mexican economics and justice expert in the guy that was goglia doubts that ordinary mexicans will get a share of the spoils and you need to make sure that all this investment and all the returns from those investments to some degree will provide. a remedy to those sectors within mexico that have never experienced any benefits from the after . cultural sector or the small farmer but i haven't seen any kind of government plan or strategy indicating that they will go that way so far considering the precedence of mexico's opening to the world i would say that the privatization of the oil sector in the hands of all your police will bring more corruption more unequal distribution of income and more social instability. but corruption isn't always considered a bad thing by big business. where there's corruption there's no accountability.
3:18 pm
the oil industry has a track record of thriving in places with poor regulatory regimes they pollute and get away with it. mexico state owned oil company pemex has been accused of this. reporter and got his committee has been following the trail of oil investigating cases of corporate impunity. said that they were. sick and dying and it was kind of. mixed with an. edgar is on his way to major oil spill which has polluted

3:21 pm
from an early age children are taught the story of oil. and be assured. don't know. may. you know. but for the communities where pemex their relationship is a troubled one. has got to see as the head of the local bar land council. a small tabasco bill each of fifteen hundred indigenous people. of the lord. probably that among the you know.
3:22 pm
when there are things you can. do more. with. by law the profits made by pemex are supposed to be reinvested in social and economic development but how much of the profits filtered down to the people in two thousand and thirteen pemex made billions of dollars from oil into basket yet eighty six percent of the population live in poverty. is typical of that inequality. really not. easy and by what. is a good example i mean the another. series of oil disasters in the area has added to their problems. tabasco human rights lawyer. has taken up the bill it years costs.

3:47 pm
the payoff promises to be a big one. texas eagle ford from asian the u.s. richest natural gas field is just a stone's throw away over the rio grande. it's generated more than forty six billion dollars and created eighty six thousand jobs but until now the mexican side of eagle ford has been for bidding fruit to foreign oil. if you look at the eagle for mation along the texas border and you fly there any time of the day or night and you see the activity in just south of it. there's absolutely no activity whatsoever the subsurface of these areas didn't recognize borders didn't recognize a river didn't recognize and a line on the on the ground that was painted by people the subsurface geology i think very attractive they'd love to do business in mexico. that's good news for the people of color. they're sitting on
3:48 pm
a mother note the fourth largest shell reserve in the world. and influx of texas oilmen couldn't come at a better time. these communities are struggling to survive. we're going to die soon as i like and i. mean they're going to have so but we don't but at the end of that i am not into the i'm not going to look i meant that i live my life an idea i will not see him grab for darkness. nafta undermined the export market for mexican cattle ranchers. it made it easier for the u.s. to sell beef to mexico but introduced restrictions to mexican farmers selling to the u.s. . to smaller ranches went bankrupt. the effect combined with years of devastating drought was an exodus from ghetto let me only like and therefore i was god. that i when i sell the mills and i mean that i'm not but he's a mentor. today gary said ghost town.
3:49 pm
shops have closed houses abandoned. for this depressed region of mexico and with its promise of thousands of jobs seems almost too good to be true. and there is a catch. look at the numbers are two years. noir the people of the us union tools comments when i listen to this is the economic growth as you and i thought it was a little mentor in fracking. one well has already been dug in this area on land belonging to ranchers philippe feminine this was that was a new branch of the law from it's one branch of the mean those seem to think that yes. i was in for them to the bone so. i feel now a little below say i don't know if the bulls will be blaming that on fracking. but i'm also you. just course of my love the point i mean that's you on the list there
3:50 pm
must be a little bundles and we've heard those but one of those days when it was all this going to see you i was in but. i would be he said. this about only that one fact i think you don't think and believe as i mentioned last name you know. more plenty that i want to get on with and i just don't want to start in the middle of the what is it and then. when expanding into what it is that fracking fracking is a controversial method involving the high pressure injection of water and chemicals to fracture rocks and release natural gas. but it can poison water sources and trigger earthquakes. energy analyst i don't have enough wind to include i think the teaching of the local cattle ranchers association. with.
3:51 pm
fracking is new to mexico this ranchers have only heard rumors. despite their worries about fracking the ranchers have fallen in such hard times that they may be forced to make a devil's bargain. i think here they will. never even.
3:52 pm
think about it. but. she said i meant they. are going to look i want. people they can and i'm going to hear. see at the moment the noise i see look at the. i was at the point where i go. if they don't adapt there's only one other source of work organized crime the largest employer in the area. has had a very bright side but also has had a very dark side the dark side of globalization has been organized crime and i could not have bankrupted the small ranchers many of those who survived were forced off their land by the cartels cattle ranches became drug routes and organized crime recruited from the unemployed. lawlessness in. epidemic proportions
3:53 pm
simplemente revealed in. the. case that the. building or an infant going to sort of miles is complete and that's when i. have a. between two thousand and six and two thousand and twelve the number of people who were forcibly disappeared over eighteen kundry corporations were also the victims of extortion and. kidnappings. to state's response was to establish an elite security force. that was that. you know. again unless you are in the midst of. it is the ideal environment for organized crime to take over in the form of legal businesses and to propose joint
3:54 pm
ventures to foreigners who come here. very excitedly come expecting to do business with in the oil sector we have hundreds of organized crime groups wandering around mexico right now heavily armed heavy weapons and they would be pounding on this foreign oil companies left and right. to start lesson for oil is if you're going to do business and you're going to encounter organized crime. i feel have already chosen to work with them in june of two thousand and fourteen to texan companies pleaded guilty to buying oil stolen by the cartels. for companies with their eye on the price of six hundred trillion cubic feet of gas and it's a risk some will be willing to take. the only alternative is to fight the cartels by hiring protection like what we are security forces who insist they have the upper hand. at the meant the.
3:55 pm
