Centro de Derechos Humanos Fray Bartolomé de las Casas (San Cristóbal de las Casas), dates not examined
Collection Description & Creator Information
This collection of ephemera from Mexico consists of pamphlets, flyers, serials, and election paraphernalia printed between 1968 and 2008, but the bulk of the materials dates from the early 1990s to 2006. The collection is divided into six subject areas. The first section covers Mexican local and national elections between 1970 and 2006, focusing on the 2006 general election, with the candidate of the Partido de la Revolución Democrática (PRD), Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and the winner of the election, Felipe Calderón, candidate of the Partido Acción Nacional (PAN). Additional sections include political parties and social movements; regional political movements, with an emphasis on the Zapatista uprising in the state of Chiapas as well as urban neighborhood activism in the colonias of Mexico's Federal District; state and municipal government publications, political analysis; and foreign policy. In the first four sections, materials are alphabetically organized by party or publishing organization; at times, items are first grouped by state or region and then sorted by publisher. In the last two sections, materials are alphabetically arranged by title.
