Mexico’s Campesinos March for Land Rights, Against Fracking
An estimated 50,000 campesinos and supporters turned out to march in Mexico City on Wednesday. Agricultural organizations from throughout Mexico attended.
Under the banner “The Countryside Is for All,” attendees marched in support of farmers, food sovereignty, Indigenous land rights, and against recent energy reforms that would allow for fracking and appropriation of farm lands.
Organizers were able to obtain a meeting with Interior Secretary Osorio Chong to discuss concerns.

While touring the grounds, owner Kelly Grummons mentioned a few of his favorite plants, including this rat tail cactus, which he has had since his youth. He said it is like a mascot for the nursery - and it is quite beautiful.
