Mexico is a country at war. Sometimes the authorities have openly taken the banner of war, and others, like the current administration, a speech of pacification. "El País Bajo Armas” (The country under weapons) is a journalistic investigation focusing on the use of lethal force by the Army, the police, and the power that President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador granted to the military. Mexico's first leftist president has made the Army more powerful than ever. It is not only a militarization of public security issues but also of militarism by granting power to the military institutions that previously belonged to the civilian field.
