Javier Sicilia won't run for congress, despite offer

Javier Sicilia and Julián Le Baron, prominent social activists, won't run for the Mexican congress in 2012, despite being offered candidacies by the left's Movimiento Progresista.

Too bad - it would have allowed them a much bigger forum and wider audience for their anti-violence message.

  1. External candidates, selected for their fame with single issue campaigns, seems to be the fashion this year. It's probably just as well they turned the offer down, since it frees up MC to run on an "other than drugs" ticket.
