Two explosions in the electrical system in downtown Mexico City wounded three people, and Pedro Ferriz suggested the possibility of sabotage. This is a first, because in the past Ferriz smirked at anyone who talked about sabotage in Mexico.
A series of short circuits have caused other explosions throughout Mexico City this past year, leading some to wonder whether they were purposefully set. This year happens to be when Mexican President Felipe Calderón´s government, in a very aggressive move, disbanded the electric company (Luz y Fuerza del Centro) and left electrical worker´s union without its power base. The union, before its electric company was disbanded, was a powerful political force that leaned to the left, while President Calderón leans to the right.
Leaving the electrical workers union without its power base led to well publicized hunger strikes, but some like ultra-right Pedro Ferriz believe that secretly, union members have been moving from neighborhood to neighborhood exploding electical power stations as a further form of protest. He hasn´t outright said it, but has alluded to it several times on his radio show over the last week. City inspectors determined that 50 year-old unmaintained wiring is the cause of the eplosions.
Ultra-right leaning Pedro Ferriz has strongly attacked former Presidential Candidate Andrés López Obrador, for claiming government forces sabotaged his campaign when he ran for president, in 2006. Now, Ferriz is using this idea of sabotage to explain the recent explosions in Mexico City.
