Cultura - exigirán protección cultural

SÁBADO, 6 Septiembre 2003 – 2003/09/06

In this article published in Mexico’s Milenio Diario newspaper on September 6, Ms Leticia Sánchez asserts that the Mexican government, unlike Switzerland and Brazil, has no official position for protecting culture. This being the case, the Mexican Coalition for Cultural Diversity announced that during the WTO Ministerial Conference in Cancun, Mexican artists and culture professionals will move to adopt a position in defense of cultural diversity. They maintain, in particular, that culture must not be considered as a simple trade good. (Available in Spanish only)
