Note: Will try to cover July presidential election in Mexico more.
To those of us on the border, it could be as important as election in
U.S. A key question, should the PRI regain the presidency, will the
drug cartels be satisfied to be junior partners again? Or will they
be equal partners, or even the partnership be reversed?
A very interesting defection here. Sicila pretty much on target
about PRI. Wrong, of course, about far left candidate AMLO (Lopez
Obrador) Who is trying to get a meeting with him according to media
Several recent polls have EPN in first, with AMLO and then JVM far
behind. Average = 50%, 28% & 25%. Not good, but looks like people
starting to pay attention. Northern Mexico led the way in the
defeat of the PRI 12 years ago.
Milenio poll for today has: EPN 46%, JVM 28%, AMLO 25% and GQT
THE RETURN OF THE PRI, THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN TO MEXICO: JAVIER
Sunday April 22, 2012
Sicily. The worst.
The return of the PRI to the presidency, with Enrique Peña Nieto,
would be the worst thing that could happen to Mexico, it would return
the worst practices they ruled for 70 years, said the poet Javier
Sicilia, leader of the Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity.
The PRI is the worst of all candidates seeking to succeed Felipe
Calderon Hinojosa he said at the start of the National Gathering for
Peace with Justice and Dignity, which ends Sunday.
Peña Nieto (EPN) does not even know we exist, not interested in
talking to us, is a return to the worst if the country is returning
PRI to power, is the return of Salinas, return to the disregard of
the citizens, the return to legalization of crime in its broadest
sense, he said.
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), however, is the best, the best
face, but unfortunately not a matter of people, is a matter of
structures and those who believe that structure and invented it ...
coming from the colonial times, but is called the PRI, and Peña
Nieto represents that.
Josefina Vazquez Mota (JVM), he continued, is a good woman, an honest
woman, the problem is the structure, because they protect their own
criminals, patrimonial structures are what does this mean?: Using the
assets of the nation and the nation itself for personal gain, that's
the big problem. I wish it were a matter of people, the problem is a
matter of structures.
But as good people do not act accordingly to transform state
structures, because we will not get out, who comes will be the choice
of shame, but it will be worse with Peña Nieto, anyone will be a
disaster, but Peña Nieto will be worse, he concluded.
He called voting for the lesser evil, but reiterated that their vote
will be blank because the parties and candidates are ignoring the
victims of the war against organized crime.
The father of Juan Francisco the young Sicilia found finalized with
six others in a car on March 28, 2011 - said he expected the death of
more than 60,000 people left by the war on crime, Felipe Calderon
will at the end of his term with a great sense of guilt (...), that
you desire: a coincidence of heartache for their irresponsibility and
a request for forgiveness can heal his soul and conscience.
In the match for peace involving social organizations, human rights,
victims of violence and their families. The meeting takes place at
the Joan of Arc school in this city.
The government of Felipe Calderón and Members were asked to fulfill
their promise to pass the law for victims of the war on organized
crime in order to operate the procurement of services to victims.
This is not to promote a national security law that serves only to
cause pain and death, they said, because it seems that both the
president and legislators only have imagination for violence.
