Two women hanging out in Mexico City beneath a giant statue of Lazaro Cardenas, the Mexican president revered for nationalizing the oil industry in the 1930s. This photo was taken moments after a rally in the Mexican capital in late June that drew hundreds of residents opposed to President Enrique Peña Nieto’s proposal to open the Mexican national oil company, Pemex, to foreign investment.
