Respect and community unity

Just some helpful advice since I have been helping to inform folks about this problem since long before you moved here. Please be respectful towards doña Laura. She has earned much respect of the locals for her efforts to improve the community and to help protect it. Working together with doña Laura and her friends will go much further towards helping to preserve and protect the community and the ecology than a gazillion Facebook "friends" from other places. You were quite disrespectful towards her the last time we discussed this matter here, and seeing as in comparison to doña Laura you are the "new kid on the block" your disrespectfulness towards her here leaves you "the odd man out", if you understand that idiomatic expression.

A united community is a force to be reckoned with here in Guerrero. A divided community is a plaything for influential and unscrupulous public servants and their developer cohorts in crime.

Also, here in Zihuatanejo the barradsepotosinos have many important allies who are doing a good job so far of keeping FONATUR honest as well as keeping their ambitions at bay. FONATUR claims they have no plans to develop a cruise ship pier at Barra de Potosí, though we all suspect they are only referring to current plans. Government entities are masters of playing with semantics.

Local fishermen at La Barra stand as much if not more to lose than Zihuatanejo fishermen, so it behooves La Barra fishermen to remain in close touch with their Zihuatanejo counterparts and to attend the upcoming meetings planned with FONATUR.

The motto of the US state where I was born is "UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL". I believe it would be smart to remember that same saying here among us.
