Protests in Mexico Push Country to Brink of Revolution and Nobody’s Talking About It

Long-simmering social tensions in Mexico are threatening to boil over as failing reforms to the Mexico's formerly nationalized gas sector are [worsened] by open corruption, stagnant standards of living, and rampant inflation.

The U.S. media has remained mostly mute on the situation in Mexico, even as the unfolding civil unrest has closed the U.S.-Mexico border in San Diego, California, several times in the past week. Ongoing “gasolinazo” protests [concerning the 20 percent rise in gas prices] in Mexico  have led to over 400 arrests, 250 looted stores, and six deaths.

Roads are being blockaded, borders closed, and government buildings are being sacked.

Protests have remained relatively peaceful overall, except for several isolated violent acts, which activists have blamed on government infiltrators.
