Real talk? Or common presidential jargon?

“If we want to make a change we must make people aware of this…create greater consciousness,” said the speaker of the video above in relation to the need for reforms in Mexico.

It is up to Mexican youth. As of late, youth have started a movement for the Mexican people to regain control of their country, demanding better conditions.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, in the wake of disappearances, protests, and violence in Mexico, has announced that reforms will be made. Nieto has informed the public of constitutional reforms that will go in front of Congress within the next week. He has also emphasized scrutiny on municipalities, eluding to the problem being local governments.

CNN reporters point out, Nieto has strayed away from blame of the federal government as well as the major issues of corruption and insecurity between citizens and government.

Most critics believe, just like previous Mexican presidents, Nieto is simply saying the “right things.” However, the public doesn’t expect much to change. Or rather, they don’t expect much independent governmental action.
