mexicans head to the polls this sunday to choose their next leader frontrunner. dora's valid to reverse decades of the client and poverty and rural communities but as john allman reports from the state of michoacan it's a tough campaign pledge to fulfill. the mix can countryside decimated by poverty and empty but migration over decades. is one of the aging population of small scale farmers struggling to compete with industrial scale operations in northern mexico and the us. i produced grains but not money he says. many communities young have either left or turned to more lucrative ventures. they sell drugs they kidnap they live well for a few days and then they get killed just next to my house where there was kind of

products australia introduced the laws in two thousand and eleven but it faced strong opposition from tobacco producing countries and manufacturers. for them maurice for example sued the government for what it called brand damage the case was thrown out and the tobacco of them was ordered to pay the government's legal fees of the latest complaint to the w t o was filed by cuba honduras the dominican republic and indonesia or them tobacco producing countries who claim the laws damaged international trade in violated intellectual property rights but that claim was rejected in the ruling is expected to accelerate the rollout of plain packaging laws in other countries simon chapman is a public health professor at the university of sydney who campaigned for plain packaging laws in australia he says tobacco firms are unlikely to succeed in appealing the ruling but work the industry always starts with legislation that
threatens its bottom line and of course in public health that's exactly what we want to do we do want more people to quit smoking and fewer people to take it up well the industry always arses first of all try to defeat legislation then if it can't defeat it it tries to drug users and water it down and if it can't do that it tries to delay the implementation and what these cases are all about the trying to impose a regulatory chill globally so that other countries won't follow instructions for footsteps that they've lost a little bit light we've already got six countries which have implementors we've got in addition to australia we've got france england the united sorry the united kingdom and norway are.
