Emiliano Salinas: A civil response to violence In this passionate talk from TEDxSanMigueldeAllende that's already caused a sensation in Mexico, Emiliano Salinas, son of former president Carlos Salinas de Gortari, confronts the current climate of violence in Mexico -- or rather, how Mexican society responds to it. He plots the way for society to move from denial and fear to peaceful, community-based action, calling on ordinary citizens to stand up and seize hold of the future of their country. This is the first TEDTalk delivered in a language other than English.
