Monica Palacios is the Unión por la Esperanza (UNES) party candidate for National Assembly candidate for Ecuadorans in North America. UNES is the present pro-Rafael Correa party.  She will be interviewed by Joe Emersberger, frequent writer on Ecuador author (with Justin Podur) of forthcoming book Extraordinary Threat : The U.S. Empire, the Media, and Twenty Years of Coup Attempts in Venezuela

On February 7 Ecuador holds its election for president. The leading candidate is  Andres Arauz of UNES, a political ally of former President Rafael Correa, whose has been a target of a frame-up by present President Lenin Moreno. Arauz’s election would mean Ecuador would return to the orbit of Latin America’s socialist and progressive nations, joining Bolivia, Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua.
