Mexico: The Other Side of the Fight

Mexico: The Other Side of the Fight

By Martha Ramos

MEXICO: I think if everything looks terrible for us here, it should be worse reading it in US newspapers!!
Well, 200 years ago we were in war for independence.
100 years ago we were in another war. The revolution now is against the narcos!!!
But let me show you the other side of Mexico.

This is how it looks. Isn’t it paradise?
Mexico is worth fighting for — don’t you think?

The big question is: Is the strategy against the narcos the right one?
I’m not sure anymore.

I’m Martha Ramos, born 43 years ago, a journalist during the last 24 years and a mother since 1998.

I believe in the power of friendship, and the wisdom of children. I defend women as a basic element in every society, every group, every family.

I recognize journalism as the most important tool of a democratic country and the imperfect way of getting to the truth. Now, in the era of journalism 2.0 and 3.0 I really thank you for the possibility of talking to you and hearing from you.

Aside from Latina Lista, I also blog at my blog, and another one at Ejecentral.

LET’S TALK.
