Mexico’s President Presents Crime-Prevention Plan

MEXICO CITY – President Enrique Peña Nieto launched Tuesday a national plan to address both the effects and the root causes of the gangland violence blamed for 70,000 deaths in Mexico over the past six years.

“Yes, it’s possible” to achieve peace, he said at an event in the central city of Aguascalientes.

Peña Nieto, who took office Dec. 1, established Tuesday a federal interdepartmental commission that will attempt to coordinate government efforts to repair the social fabric in areas that suffer the most violence.

Mexico has been going under Calderon, and the heavy militarization of the drug war in Mexico.
