Ecocide bill introduced in Mexico's Congress
Not lost on me that the US was conspicuously missing from the list of countries that are taking legislative steps towards protecting the environment. 🤔
Very interesting, and hopefully something can effect some changes. As you mention, enforcement can be tricky.
Example: Here, we have a program that requires car emission inspection (apparently, buses are exempt because oh do they spew.) Anyway, in the couple of years, I've noticed more and more cars without plates. I asked a cop I know and he said that the police confiscate the plates of cars that don't have a current inspection sticker, but then they don't do anything about cars without a plate. Bit of a loophole, I'd say.
In Monterrey, they're currently burying cables in the San Pedro portion of the city. I wonder if that comes from the work of Karina Barrón Perales. That'll be a pleasant sight when they get that work done. My street (far from Nuevo Leon) is probably low on the list, though. Oh well.....
As for dogs, I'm with you on that one Mike. And I love that photo of the dogs parading in support. :)
That is a story about leadership--thanks Mike!
Here's hoping that many countries follow Mexico's lead in this! Is there language in it for reparations I wonder? The damage can be so widespread that reparations and mitigation make a lot of sense to me. Does Mexico have the same odd "corporate person" theory that the US does? That US policy has led to a lot of environmental damage with no accountability.
