      On Sunday, August 1, millions of Mexicans will take part in a referendum that could bring five neoliberal-era presidents to trial.

      For the first time in the political history of the nation, the Popular Consultation Law will create a direct mechanism for citizen participation in policy making.

      This referendum has been actively promoted by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), whom the Mexican right wing accuses of carrying out “leftist propaganda” for putting the decision on a “technical” and judicial issue in the hands of the common people.

      Through this popular consultation, citizens will say “yes” or “no” to the judicial investigation of acts of corruption and state-sponsored violence carried out by former presidents Carlos Salinas de Gortari (1988-1994), Ernesto Zedillo (1994-2000), Vicente Fox (2000-2006), Felipe Calderón (2006-2012), and Enrique Peña Nieto (2012-2018).
