Let love rule

26 Ago

I can’t help but being too lazy to update. But here are some highlights.

– President Fox and the media are busy trying to make people angry against those who ask for clean elections by closing an avenue, a bad image is going to make it easier for them to kill/arrest/torture people without anybody complaining, “it was necessary” will be the motto.

– At least 4 of the 7 judges have whored themselves to finish the fraud and say the losing candidate was actually the winner.
Judges helping murder Democracy, lovely.

– I visited the tents at the Zocalo yesterday, a man at the door gave me a bit of paper saying “Welcome” and some info on why they were there (which I already knew), the place is immaculate, tidy, clean, in perfect order, there are tents with doctors, a few with TV’s playing films (like the “Who is Mr. Lopez?” by Mandoki) and some stands to receive goods or sell things like ribbons with the colours of the flag.
I loved it, I don’t remember seeing so many folding beds made so tidily before.
People there are dealing with heavy rains, cold, hail, floods and lack of food, but instead of getting support they receive insults, what has Fox done…

– There’s a new TV ad paid by the Mexican business people, as if they hadn’t spent enough money in the past 6 months promoting “everything is great/every change would be evil”. So yes, the ad says something like “Give us our avenue back”, it’s one of the most depressing ads to have ever been made. There are interviews with a young man working at a newspaper stand, “His sales have dropped around 50%”, interviews with two old women, one very poor says she has to walk so much (and we can see her carrying two supermarket bags, we wonder where she lives?) and the second one says it’s kinda hard for her to do a lot of walking because she’s “kinda disabled”, damn!, either you are disabled or aren’t for heaven’s sake!.

But something stood out (for me) about the past few days. Because of the closed avenue cars can’t reach certain buildings, one of those cars was an armoured van which had to stay 2 blocks away from its destination, and what did I see?, the police men walking through the tents with bags full of money back to their van, they had guns but the one with the bags was at the back, alone. And everybody at the tents just minding their own business.

If the city is “taken”, “besieged”, as the president and the media said, how come I saw that?.
Lies, all lies.
