Siempre Victoria!


| September 2003


CANCUN CITY, MEXICO -- It is the last day of negotiations at the WTO. Things are not going well, and they have until 11 p.m. to come up with agreements, Some of us want to make one final push into the conference center area, make one last show of opposition.

The group of exhausted people who met the night before could only come up with a time and a meeting place: a beach just south of the security zone, While I'm on my way there with a carload of us, we get a call that the military has blocked off the beach. We try to spread the word that the location has changed to a beach further south.
