I think the most any non-resident of foreign nationality can do is to simply boycott Puerto Mio's services and installations for the time being.
Everything that development has done it has done while trying to hide their intentions from the community. Additionally, now it appears they have contributed to the corruption of several public officials through collusion and possibly payments for the favors of granting quick permits. Any way around, the whole affair brings to the forefront the deficiencies in our government to practice anything approximating "good government" at all 3 levels. Permits were issued that never should have been, information was kept from local authorities by federal authorities, and the local authorities simply got caught with their pants down and now have a major social unrest problem on their hands to deal with.
Cruise ships simply aren't worth all this hassle that they have caused in our town. Now, many less knowledgeable people in government and in the media are spouting how important cruise ships are to our local economy, and that anyone against them is hurting thousands of families from Troncones to Petatlán. This is probably one of the most absurd accusations to come out of this affair to date, but the poor and uneducated majority have no idea and are easily misled, and therein lies the problem with "democracy".
