Recent articles in the New York Times and the Mexico News Daily have provided political and environmental activists a platform to spread awareness of how CEMEX and Vestas are exploiting the local population of Oaxaca. If managed incorrectly, this information could go viral, get hijacked by activists, escalate into violence, and impact...
