What is the reason for the military and police show of force in Ixtapa? ParaMilitary, Marines, and Policia pattoling in Ixtapa early afternoon? A show of force for visitors or an operation?

Word on the street here in Ixtapa is there was a Government Official here this weekend and that accounts for the added security! I thought it was the Yoppers in town! Go figure.

We were told the Head of FONATUR was in town.

Hopefully he's here to try to resolve an old problem we have. The Ejido de Zihuatanejo has finally run out of patience with Fonatur and they are protesting on Ixtapa's boulevard on Saturday afternoons. Their protests could be escalated at any time, and frankly I think they should simply close down the entrance roads into Ixtapa completely until they are compensated for the land that was expropriated from them over 40 years ago by the federal government and for which they have still not received the compensation they are legally and rightfully due.

Geez.......how impatient people are!!

I could see them having a gripe, but it's only been 40 years. Maybe they should operate in good faith and give them just a little more time without raising attention to this. As I am sure the government of Mexico has their best interests in mind and has been developing and working on a special compensation package for all concerned residents.

Don't worry folks.....it's coming.......checks in the mail. :)
