Dear Democracy Now! visitor,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the standoff at Standing Rock or news about the movements fighting for peace, racial and economic justice, immigrant rights and LGBTQ equality. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2017. Pretty exciting, right?

The stakes are high in Sunday’s national elections in Mexico. For the first time ever, the Institutional Revolutionary Party (known as the PRI) has significantly loosened its grip on the electoral machinery and is expected to allow opposition parties to participate and win some major governmental posts. On Sunday, voters will select more than 500 Federal legislators, hundreds of municipal officials and the first mayor of Mexico City in the country’s history.

Guest: • Juan Gonzalez, a columnist with the New York Daily News and a co-host of Democracy Now!
