You can still vote for local DEMOCRACY in MEXICO

My sister Kathy’s petition to have her local municipal government listen to and take into account its citizens in Atizapán, Mexico, stands at 139 signatures!

Thanks to all who voted with a click.

Petition pic Kathy 139But if you didn’t, thought about it at the time and wondered if it was the right thing to do, and put it aside for ‘sometime’ in the future, you can still add your vote.

Kathy increased her goal from 100 to 130 signatures. When she approached 130, she increased her goal to 150.

This style of petitioning government respectfully is new to many, and the pace of signing has slowed down, both in Mexico, and in the States and the rest of the world.

New things come along and take our time – and the ‘sometime’ runs the risk of becoming ‘never’ – just because of the press of life.

Check the previous post again if you like – nothing has changed (except the number of signatures!).

But if you meant to do it, and ‘sometime’ got you, you can just click here directly:

If you are not already a member of AVAAZ (likely you’re not), use the lower form (primera vez=first time), type in your name (Nombre), Email address, Select your country (ESTADOS UNIDOS) from the drop-down menu, type in your ZIP CODE (Código Postal), and click the big red FIRMAR button – and you’ve done as much as you possibly can – with no cost to yourself. And I thank you.

Later, if they send you another email and you don’t want to be on their list, just click ‘Unsubscribe.’ It works.

Thank you for your time. If you agree with our aims, please feel free to pass this information on to family, friends, and acquaintances you think might be like-minded, and who think that, whatever the government or the country, the right of the citizens to petition is a basic human right, and all citizens deserve accountability from those who govern them AND serve them.

Please send me further questions to abehrhardt [at] gmail [dot] com. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll get it from Kathy – and post it here.

I welcome comments!

    I will add that when I voted, the unsubscribe worked for me, because I have not gotten any more emails from them. 🙂 I hope this helps someone else decide to to vote.
