On Feb. 15, Aaron Fox submitted a post entitled, "more news on
Chiapas (fwd)". The post consisted of commentaries from several
sources. Though NAFTA was only mentioned in one source, the
statement should be highlighted. The source was Ken Silverstein
and Alexander Cockburn's message which stated:

"But any appeasement of popular fury will come at the expense of
foreign investors, whose security in Mexico was the fundamental
purpose of the NAFTA agreement."

Much of the current turmoil was predicted by opponents of NAFTA-
not in particular detail but as to general trend. I fear worse
is yet to come.
