About Secret History

Commentary on Latin America.
Mostly about Mexico - but not always.
Designed to encourage readers to learn about
the apparently "secret history" of 500 million people
spread across two continents
- but not always.
You can always count on a little snark.

Haití, Francia y México

El Economista has an opinion piece reviewing the colonial past of Haiti and calling for France to cough up more support and cash. It made to final points - the first of which I expected, the second of which took me by surprise:
Dos apuntes conclusivos: a) Francia tiene una pesada responsabilidad histórica, que está lejos de asumir, para vergüenza propia; b) México ejercería un papel innovador y vital de liderazgo si promoviera una campaña para la restauración forestal y ecológica, y por tanto, de captura de carbono en Haití. Semarnat y Conafor pueden y deben hacerlo.
Arriba Mexico, hijos ... del arbol.
