Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas Proposes a Social Mobilization to End Corruption in Mexico


An organized social movement that exerts pressure over the government is the way to end corruption and establish a new national project in Mexico, said three-time Mexican leftist presidential candidate, Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas.

During a conference titled “Mexico Today: Paths to a Democratic Future”, organized by the UC Berkeley’s Center for Latin American Studies, Cárdenas said that crises and corruption are not eternal, and could be defeated if the Mexican society organizes and mobilizes. “Corruption and impunity are present more and more in government and in business,” said Cárdenas at the Booth Auditorium on UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall.
