Leobardo Sarabia is an art promoter in Tijuana and director of the annual art festival Tijuana Interzona. Here he is shown on the roof of La Casa Del Tunel (house of the tunnel), an art center in a house that once featured a tunnel between its basement and a parking lot several hundred feet away on the American side. The art center is a few feet from the border.

Chili con carne, now plain ol’ chili, was a harbinger of things to come for Mexican food. It was a Mexican dish, made by Mexicans for Mexicans, but it was whites who made the dish a national sensation, who pushed it far beyond its ancestral lands, who adapted it to their tastes, who created companies for large-scale production, and who ultimately became its largest consumer to the point that the only thing Mexican about it was the mongrelized Spanish in its name. The Mexicans, meanwhile, shrugged their shoulders and continued cooking and eating their own foods, all the while ostracized by Anglos who nevertheless tore through whatever Mexicans put in front of them.

The move is made in anticipation of Peña Nieto’s/PRI’s Energy Reform Bill (ERB) which will privatize PEMEX, Mexico’s state-run oil/petroleum company. As Young explains, DE wants EF for its contracts in northern Mexico, which Mexico’s gov. controls absolutely. Negotiating directly with them for natural gas will be highly profitable for DE/EF and catastrophic for workers and the land.
Young also points out how Houston is a huge energy industrial hub and much of the positive press in favor of ERB comes from this area.
Here’s one example: PEMEX CEO Says Mexico Oil Reforms Are Long Overdue.
