40 years after the "fight of the century", the Kinshasa ghetto still remembers the battle between Mohammad Ali and George Foreman on 30 October 1974. But although the "Rumble in the Jungle" is engraved in people’s memories, the boxers who continue to train in the legendary but dilapidated Tata Raphaël Stadium now have to combat general indifference to their sport. It will take more than that to discourage the opponents who come to train every evening after school or work in the hope of a better future.

In Mexico, in the State of Guerrero, in the south of the country, the Policia de la Montaña has succeeded in bringing down the rate of crime, thefts, rapes and kidnapping. It has also significantly discouraged drug trafficking. The unofficial police force employs close to 800 policemen, spread over 77 communities, making up for the absence of federal police, very corrupt. The community police relies on a two-year “obligatory service” for all locals, unpaid. More than a simple police force, it’s an unusual justice system grouped into one body: the Regional Coordinator of Community Authorities, or CRAC for its Spanish acronym. The justice system is based on re-education rather than punishment.
