Photo Essay:

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

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
