A woman hits a fence with a spoon during a protest against the energy reform bill outside the Senate building in Mexico City December 8, 2013. Mexico's Senate committees begin debate on Sunday on an energy bill that would open up the world's 10th-biggest oil producer to private investment by allowing new types of contracts, marking the industry's most dramatic overhaul in 75 years. The bill, announced by centrist ruling party and opposition conservative lawmakers on Saturday, would let private firms partner with ailing state oil firm Pemex via profit-sharing, risk-sharing and service contracts as well as licenses in a bid to boost sagging production.
