OAXACA, Mexico, June 19 (Reuters) - Dozens of workers holed up in the offices of a Mexican newspaper managed to publish on Sunday despite what they say is a fake strike organized by politicians to silence the daily for its criticism of the state government ... Ericel Gomez Nucamendi, the owner of Noticias, promised supporters at a rally on Saturday, "They will not bend us." The newspaper, which used the Internet for printing and distribution during the standoff, used his words for its lead headline on Sunday.

Mexico Transit - Living on Earth
http://www.loe.org/shows/segments.htm?p ... egmentID=7

Air Date: Week of July 29, 2005

Mexico City has long been considered one of the most polluted cities in the world. The government has tried to clean its polluted air over the years by implementing vehicle emissions standards and inspection programs to cut down on old cars and other polluting vehicles. The city has also set its sights on improving public transportation and just this summer inaugurated a dedicated bus lane down one of its busiest streets. Producer Jana Schroeder climbed onboard the metrobus to find out how the new system is faring.

America should look more often in its own backyard - Juan Tokatlian/Financial Times

In what has become tradition in US-Latin American relations, Washington once again seems annoyed with trends on its southern doorstep.

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- A bus carrying tourists from a cruise ship plunged into a ravine Wednesday in the highlands of northern Chile and officials said 11 people were killed, most believed to be U.S. citizens.

The bus was carrying tourists from a Bahamas-registered Millennium cruise ship for a visit to a national park outside of Arica, a city 1,250 miles north of Santiago, near the border with Peru and Bolivia, said Juan Carlos Poli, a municipal spokesman for Arica.

Tourism On Upswing In Latin America, As Destinations Position For Growing Competition


Destinations from Canada to Argentina are pleased with their tourism growth but are also aware that they will need to fight to maintain it. The way forward should be focused on strengthening tourism and media relationships, capacity sharing and especially branding of destinations, as was underscored by the Regional Conference on Tourism Communications (TOURCOM) for the Americas, which concluded on Tuesday in Rosario, Argentina.
