En respuesta a: movements good and bad on Barra de Potosi development/cruiseship pier escrito por Laura desde 126.96.36.199 (host671420024130.direcway.com) el día miércoles, 02 de diciembre, 2009 a las 15:31:33 horas :
As long as there is a community to defend their way of life this cruise ship project will not happen. I believe the people of Barra de Potosí can count on the support of many of their neighbors here in Zihuatanejo.
The news I have read on this matter is that the two municipios are only going to call for a study to determine the ideal locat1on and at what cost a pier might be built. Greedy developers and their politician pals are simply looking to dip their hand into that deep public till, since it will mean millions in contracts and kickbacks. Not one of them gives a flea's fart if any cruise ship actually ever uses the pier or not. And studies from the cruise ship industry itself do NOT justify the construction of a new pier anywhere along our coast since there is waning interest in cruises longer than 4 days from San Diego to Mexico and even if the interest were increasing there are no more ships available that could be deployed for additional cruises along our coast. They have already been committed to the Caribbean and the Mediterranean as well as Oceania.
This whole thing is a farce based on corruption and greed.
