The end is near denounces the environmental damage that lies within the celebration and mass consumption of Mexican culture from a position of geopolitical power. Mexico is a country that has found itself characterised as the main route for drug exportation, production, and tourism (Beittel, 2022). According to Global Witness, Mexico registered 30 lethal attacks on environmental activists in 2020 (50% on indigenous communities, 95% not prosecuted),  being the second most dangerous country to fight for environmental rights.
