Guatemala & the youtube/twitter revolution
« on: May 15, 2009, 03:08:35 PM »
Is anyone following events in Guatemala?  Things are heating up, starting with a posthumous youtube video of an assassinated lawyer naming the president and his cadre as his murderers, and now with street protests, arrests of people for single twitter posts, further and growing protests.

Xeni at Boingboing is tracking it all pretty closely here.

Does anyone have local knowledge?
The pleasures of the table are for every man, of every land, and no matter what place in history or society; they can be a part of all his other pleasures, and they last the longest, to console him when he has outlived the rest.
