While the world follows Britain's cattle disaster, and the American press remains virtually silent on the meetings between the Zapatistas and Fox's government, Fox's riot police savagely brutalize peaceful demonstrators in Cancun at the World Economic Forum, in an all-out attack on departing protestors. This is the face of the world elite's "Globalization." From Chiapas Indymedia.
Front-line report of the mobilisation against the World Economic Forum in Cancun, February 26 and 27th.
NEO-LIBERAL PARADISE FOUND Theres a bus that leaves the indigenous town of Altamirano, Chiapas, near the zapatista headquarters at Morelia, that sets out for Cancun full with temporary construction workers. The workers, tseltal and tojolabal campesinos, work 6 or 7 days a week for 12 hours a day, for the paltry sum of 40 pesos a day, about . They labour to construct the ever expanding hotel industry of the monsterous elite tourist playground . There are over 50,000 rooms in Cancun and the average price is around 0 a night to stay.
20 years ago Cancun was a sleepy Mexican village looking out over the beautiful caribbean. Today it is more like a US colony modeled after Disneyland or a Hollymovie set in Los Angeles. The graceful shoreline is now choc-a block with astonishingly ostentatious hotels of enormous proportions. Some are post-modern representations in the style of ancient Mayan pyramids, others, are more reminiscient of gangster run Havana casino
