From Mexico: María de Jesús Patricio Martínez (Marichuy)
Video Discription: Mexico’s political campaign is already in full swing, despite the fact that the formal electoral process hasn’t even began. This year seems to be no exception, except for the historic candidacy of “Marichuy”, María de Jesús Patricio Martínez, the first indigenous woman to run for the presidency of Mexico. Maria is not running to occupy the presidential palace, but to raise issues that are normally shunted aside during the traditional political campaigns. On this program of interviews From Mexico, Marichuy talks about her projection into the lime light, the goals of her candidacy and why Mexico’s indigenous movement decided to participate in the formal electoral process.
