zapATIsta sings a verse of "dancin' on the ruins of multinational corporations"
mexicatl: oh, funny story. people in the delegation section seem really bored. taped one guy using the WTO connection to surf for porn :)
mexicatl: they are desperate methinks

mexicatl: people starting to come on
mexicatl: i agree, but he's an expert on this
mexicatl: ok, that's it until next round unless there are questions?
mexicatl: well, this guy Milan, he's not a chief delegator, so he probably doesn't know all the details
mexicatl: he believes that an agreement of some sort will be reached
mexicatl: it's a public access, so i don't know
PlatinumD: ahhh, so nice getting first-hand news from a place the mainstream will barely mention:)
