Sicilia vs. presidential candidates [In Spanish]

Animal Político, 5/29/2012

Last Monday, the civil society group Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad led by Javier Sicilia, had the opportunity to meet with the four presidential candidates at the Castillo de Chapultepec. The group presented four general demands and expressed their opinion on each of the candidates and their political parties.

The demands are: foster the declaration of a Ley General de Víctimas (that was approved by the Legislative Power last April); change the current belligerent security strategy; bring down the economic base of organized crime; and support civil society participation in the exercise of democracy through consultation, referendum, citizen candidacies and democratization of the media.
Animal Político summarizes the main critiques issued by this group of victims led by Javier Sicilia as well as the proposals offered by each of the presidential candidates. The unedited version of their answers are available here.
