LAURA REBOLLOSO. Latin jazz began as a fusion mix by Latin American musicians in the United States. What happens to jazz these days, in the i-pod era, when it glides back over the borders into Latin America? The First Mission Latin Jazz Festival in San Francisco aims to explore the new boundaries of this genre. Laura Rebolloso, one of the founders of legendary Son Jarocho group Son de Madera, arrives from Mexico with her Ensemble Marinero, mixing jazz with the music of Veracruz. She is a dancer, poet, troubadour and master of the leona, the largest instrument of the jarana guitar family.

MEXICO EDITION. More than 500 years after the arrival of the Spaniards, the pillaging of Mexico's natural resources continues. Before, the Spanish conquest missions led the extraction of gold and silver. Now, it is Canadian transnational companies that are taking the lead. Also, hydroelectric companies and wind turbines are being built in different states, without indigenous people and small farmers receiving any benefit, according to small farmer activist Wilfrido Hern√°ndez Jarqu√≠n. Also, in a second conversation with nuclear physicist, Jorge Alberto L√≥pez Gallardo, author of "2012, ¬ŅFraude electoral?", the author explains that according to the analysis of votes in special elections polls, Andr√©s Manuel L√≥pez Obrador won the election by more than five million votes. Adem√°s, en distintos estados se construyen hidroel√©ctricas y proyectos e√≥licos, sin que a las poblaciones ind√≠genas y campesinas llegue ning√ļn beneficio, denunci√≥ el activista campesino Wilfrido Hern√°ndez Jarqu√≠n. Por otra parte, en una segunda charla con el F√≠sico Nuclear, Jorge Alberto L√≥pez Gallardo, autor del libro ‚Äú2012 ¬ŅFraude Electoral?‚ÄĚ, √©ste explico que de acuerdo al an√°lisis de los votos emitidos en las casillas especiales -instaladas en toda la rep√ļblica y que constituyen una muestra de las preferencias pol√≠ticas de los electores-, Andr√©s Manuel L√≥pez Obrador gan√≥ la pasada elecci√≥n con m√°s de cinco millones de votos. Martha Elena Ram√≠rez hosts Voz P√ļblica from Mexico City.
Guests: Wilfrido Hern√°ndez Jarqu√≠n, member of executive committee, Coordinadora Nacional Plan de Ayala, Movimiento Nacional (CNPA-MN), Mexico; Dr. Jorge Alberto Lopez Gallardo, professor of Nuclear Physics, University of Texas, El Paso, and author of "2012, ¬ŅFraude Electoral?", El Paso, Texas.
