Zapatista update (brief)

Three stories.

1. The government is removing onver 200 speed bumps from the rural highway in Zapatista controlled territory, to facilitate the movement of "emergency" vehicles.

2. Earlier this week or last week, it was reported that fields of marijuana had been destroyed by the federal government in Chiapas. Officials insist that the fields were in Zapatista controlled areas. Though the president's office has said the fields were not in Zapatista territory.

3. The EU is aware of the recent escalation of EZLN activity.
