Among the minority shareholders there are journalists, writers, academics, intellectuals and ordinary citizens who, according to the founders of the journal, have been investing in shares in value of 500 Mexican pesos to help launching the weekly journal. This was a response to the massive layoff and harassment suffered by dozens of critical journalists whose investigations were censored in the 1970s by the federal government.
