Rigoberta for president in Guatemala, 2007

Rigoberta Menchu, winner of the Noble Peace prize in 1992, is Guatemala's first female and indigenous candidate for president with the party "Encuentro por Guatemala" (Meeting for Guatemala).  Her campaign emphasizes equality for all people in Guatemala, particularly the majority Mayan population and women.  The campaign has few funds and relies heavily on volunteers unlike the other large national campaigns which are spending millions of dollars in their bids for the presidency.
