EDITION. Citizens begin to affiliate themselves individually with the National
Regeneration Movement in Mexico, led by the left-of-center AndrÃ©s Manuel LÃ³pez
Obrador, who is seeking to build a political party. The National Democratic
Lawyers' Association has begun to collect signatures to reject the reforms to
Mexico's Federal Labor Law, approved in November of 2012. The goal is to bring
together 10 million workers to present a mass appeal to ask that the previous Constitutional
Article 123 be respected. This edition also includes an interview with
journalist HÃ©ctor Tenorio MuÃ±oz, who comments on the meeting he had in 1993
with Hugo ChÃ¡vez and the crucial moment lived in today's Venezuela.
Martha Elena RamÃrez hosts Voz PÃºblica from Mexico City.
