Photo Essay: http://dominionpaper.ca/features/2005/01/18/photo_essa.html

Hey everyone,

Well the tour is over and we're back to the daily grind of writing grant proposals and doing e-public education.

We just put out a photo-essay on the really cool grassroots newspaper The Dominion.

Check it out

There has been a bit of a storm going on within STAC for the past couple days. Reforma newspaper, mexico's foremost business daily, did a story on the boot project. It actually turned out to be a better article than most of what's in the english language press.

The other day, the story appeared on the Mexican Government's website as 'good news'. I have never heard of a government who considers forigeners funding armed rebels on their territory 'good news'- but I suppose this is what the counter-insurgencey has become, a battle for legitimacy.

The spanish version of the article is available at
http://2004.presidencia.gob.mx/buenasnoticias/index.php?contenido=16263&pagina=3

We are in the midst of getting this translated, and an english version will be posted as soon as we have it.

Take care
In struggle
chris
