Because the President did a decree to dissolve LyFC (Electricity and power of the mid country) in this most important city of Mexico, we have the one and only inter-state highway blockaded, there have been shootouts between police and protesters, some other place protesters ran over some policemen, my school was shut down, and so was the UNAM (national autonomous university of mexico).

Besides the chaos of today, has some promise of extending itself longer.

This got dissolved:

http://translate.google.com.mx/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fes.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FLYFC&sl=es&tl=en&hl=es&ie=UTF-8

LyFC was a state-run electric company which got dissolved and assimilated by CFE (Federal Electric Commission).

There seems to be valid reasons for it not existing anymore, but my point is that all over the country theres manifestations and stuff, there were about a million people at least protesting just here in the capitol.

The telephone sindicate is going along with them too, and im not sure who else.

Isnt this pretty much the natural state of play in Mexico, though?  I'm thinking the drug wars, Oaxaca, Chiapas etc?  I'm sure there are parts of the country that are very relaxed and peaceful, but all I ever seem to read about is either cartels or some sort of grass-roots protestors creating no-go areas, and the Mexican state trying (with varying degrees of success) to get them back.

The followup seems to be getting rid of federal support for "food crops". You know, those that arent mad profitable but are for eating?

Well yes, it is the typical crap but this one is a bit more significant than the usual. And i try to not get into the "oh this is normal business" mentality, even do i know theres not much to be done.

It's the "usual": "in this times of crisis we should move farther away from protectionist policies" and "we're gonna cut down on spending/close institutions that don't make us roll around any more currency than we already have"

That's one thing I've always admired about Mexico.

They are shameless about being all about the bottom line.

Har.  You don't know Mexico real well, do you?   It's all slippery slope. I don't blame JohNyx for his "Fuck you" at all. He has to live there and put up with that bullshit.
