Gird up for another battle, Oaxaca...the capitalist touristas will not be coming back until you get your state in order...oh yeah...that's right! Commies don't believe in capitalism....how stupid of me...I must have forgotten. Apparently they don't want the evil dollars flowing in to their city anymore...so, in other news, the teachers got what they wanted, and the city got back to a state of being semi-normal...until now. Hasta la vista, Oaxaca.

I think the steam has gone out of the protest. Last month's march drew 10,000. Then the evil governor paid the blackmail demanded by the teachers - in spades! So this month's march was fairly puny. Shows what the fuss was all about.

When we visited Oaxaca for hristmas with friends, the reminders of the earlier demonstrations were everywhere. Clearly, APPO is not interested in building, but only in destroying. The people of the City to whom I talked all felt that the APPO demonstrators did not act in the interest of the people.

Clearly they acted in a destructive manner, burning and destroying in the midst of this historic city.

APPO does not represent the people, but the political interests of a warped few.
