Hi guys Protest is today, bush came here yesterday at 20:45.
Today at 10:15 a group of people tried to enter the US embasy, they clash on the barricades, and couldn't get in.

Subway are closed becouse of fear of terrorists attacs.

There are movilizations in almos every state of the country.


In MDP the city where is taking place the summit, also is taking place the "People Summit" headed by chavez, Maradone, Peace nobel price "Perez esquivel" and others, a lot of people think this "Summit of the people" is a strategy to keep the people away from the summit and so avoid incidents.

There are almost 60.000 people in MDP protesting against bush..

At 5PM we expect hte most masive movilizations in MDP and here in the capital.....

Here is some information about the security measures to protect bush:
The city of mar del plata, a turistic city is now totaly militarized..
There are 3 rings of security around the places where the summit will be made. about 9000 police and security officials will be active protecting each one of the security rings, Bush alone take with him 1200 security persononel pluss how knows how many cia agents, he will be escolted by 4 figther jets, and there are rumors he will sleep in his plane...
The security Rings:

People who live inside the security rings are forced to carry and ID to enter theyr own homes, they were all interrogated prior to get their ID and their houses were inspected.
Schools are closed
Police Stations were emptied and converted into Temporary detention centers.

This is common practice whenever Bush goes abroad.

Cities that he visits are placed under virtual martial law.

I have a Turkish friend who teaches English here in the states. She was in Istanbul a few years back when Bush was there. She told me that the whole city was under a curfew, while he was there. They virtually shut down the city for his entire visit.

Of course this makes the people of other countries ever so much fonder of Americans.

He is such an embarrassment, I wish he would appoint George Voinovich VP and resign.

Well, the riots broke out, just awful. Those people ought to be ashamed of themselves. They had a chance to make an intelligent protest and they blew it. Disgraceful.

Actualy your shouldn't generalize, becouse there were 50.000 people marching peacefully, and only 100 or lees causing problems and burning stuff. Actualy when those 100 started the incidents, the rest of the people decided to leave and not be part of it.
You fall into the mass media propaganda... you should be ashamed of yourself for making your opinions only on what you see on tv.
Here are some pictures i take from the marchs you won't be shown on tv...

Good question.
Deadlock over free trade at Americas summit
Associated Press
Nov. 5, 2005

MAR DEL PLATA, Argentina - Leaders from across the Americas, wrapping up a two-day summit overshadowed by rampaging protesters, faced a deadlock Saturday over the future of a U.S.-backed free trade zone spanning the Western Hemisphere.
----------
Protests have become commonplace at summits, especially those dealing with free trade and U.S. policies. But Friday’s violence was much smaller than massive clashes in 2001 during the Americas Summit in Quebec, when police detained 400 people and scores were injured.
----------
Free trade dominates summit
Summit participants were expected to include language in their final declaration about the FTAA, but appeared set to fail to include an April date to restart high-level talks wanted by 29 of the 34 Latin American and Caribbean nations holding the event.

The declaration also was expected to address key issues for Latin America — including job creation, immigration and disaster relief for an area that is often devastated by hurricanes and earthquakes.

But the battle over the future of the FTAA dominated the summit. Fox said the 29 countries want a version adopted that sets the April dateline for negotiations, but the dissenters were holding out for language that mentions no date and says “conditions are not right” for an FTAA because key issues like agricultural subsidies for American farmers have not been addressed. The declaration must be approved by all member nations.

The underlined reports seems contradictory to me. Anyway, the question is, if the FTAA is such a wonderful thing for Latin America, why are many of these countries against it?

Quote; 'In addition, the law provides for the withdrawal of U.S. military assistance from countries ratifying the ICC treaty'

Perhaps Iraq should ratify the ICC treaty!

Bush came to Scotland with the other 7 godfathers of capitalism in July for the G8 summit. I was there venting my displeasure.

Yes thats true, but given the chance most of the world population would want to have hugged and kissed Elvis on his short and only visit to the UK.
I am pretty confident that would not be the case concerning George Bush.
 

Informal Logic

Burnsys said:
There was a thread on EHM last year, which made me think of the book "Conscience of an Economic Hit Men" by John Perkins.

Perkins writes, "The book was to be dedicated to the presidents of two countries, men who had been his clients whom I respected and thought of as kindred spirits - Jaime Roldós, president of Ecuador, and Omar Torrijos, president of Panama. Both had just died in fiery crashes. Their deaths were not accidental. They were assassinated because they opposed that fraternity of corporate, government, and banking heads whose goal is global empire. We Economic Hit Men failed to bring Roldós and Torrijos around, and the other type of hit men, the CIA-sanctioned jackals who were always right behind us, stepped in.

John Perkins goes on to write: "I was persuaded to stop writing that book. I started it four more times during the next twenty years. On each occasion, my decision to begin again was influenced by current world events: the U.S. invasion of Panama in 1980, the first Gulf War, Somalia, and the rise of Osama bin Laden. However, threats or bribes always convinced me to stop."

I would be interested to know what members from South America think of these claims.
