AL GIORDANO ON MEXICAN ELECTION AND 'THE OTHER CAMPAIGN'-Andrew Stelzer

07/26/06

3 weeks after the Mexican elections, the country is still waiting for the electoral commission to decide whether to recount some, all or none of the votes which will determine who theri next president is. That process could take until September. Al Giordano is the publisher and journalist with Narconews.com; hes been working in Latin America for the past 9 years. He had been covering the other campaign, a national tour by the Zapatistas and subcommadante Marcos, which took place at the same time as the electoral campaign but was designed as a tool for organizing the people towards self determination. The tour ended up stopping in May to help protect the local citizens from a police riot; the Zapatistas are still calling for the release of what they say are political prisoners from the indcident.

WMNF spoke to Giordano earlier this week, and asked him about the Mexican elections in relation to the other tour, and what he thinks we might see over the next two months in Mexico.
