"Ecotourism and Conservation must not be perverted for the benefit of transnational corporations" writes Mary Ann Tenuto Sanchez in the Chiapas Update. Hear Mary Ann Tuesday. Dec. 21 join with John Steinbach, Washington DC who wrote with Phil Wheaton a powerful piece on Chiapas in the Fall 2004 Covert Action Quarterly e.g. "Montes Azules is an area of immense potential wealth and strategic importance. It is one of the richest regions in the world in biodiversity, containing important mineral resources, oil deposits, and Mexico's most important source of fresh water and thus immense untapped potential for hydroelectric energy." Come early for a little holiday cheer and meet John and Mary Ann.
