Ejido members from San Sebastian Bachajon recovered a toll booth leading to the Agua Azul waterfall on the morning of June 19, only to be attacked later in the day by twelve truckloads of police. The ejido members, part of a Zapatista support community, fled into the mountains and at least seven were reported missing. The toll booth provided funds for community development projects and has been the center of a series of disputes between Zapatista support bases and local power-brokers aligned with the PRI. As of this writing there was no further news on the dispute.

Mexico News and Analysis: February 20 - March 4, 2012

1 - WAR ON DRUGS “NOT A FAILURE?”
2 - TOURIST OFFICIALS REFRAME SAFETY FOR VISITORS
3 - G20 MEETING IN MEXICO CITY

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano tread this week where politicians have failed for years - trying to prove a positive with a negative.  By characterizing President Felipe Calderon’s war on drugs as “not a failure,” Napolitano highlighted what everyone in Mexico already knows - the policy is a resounding failure.  The comments followed Napolitano’s meeting with Interior Minister Alejandro Poire.  In public remarks, Napolitano fed a campaign theme trumpeted recently by Calderon’s National Action Party (PAN) concerning Chapo Guzman, Mexico’s most powerful drug lord and one of the world’s richest people.  While Guzman remains at large after escaping from a high security federal prison under a previous PAN administration, Napolitano implied it’s only a matter of time before he’s caught.  Some political observers are predicting a capture in April or May, leading up to the July 1 presidential elections.
