Costa Rican Protestor
10/23/2006 COSTA RICA, San Jose, thousands marched to protest against a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the U.S. and Central America, which Costa Rica has not ratified. Brian Retana in Bat Man Mask, has a head band that says, "Stand-up Costa Rica, Stand-up, NO to the (TLA) FTA.
Oscar Arias, a president that was once the most beloved of all Costa Rican presidents, especially because of the role he played in ending the Central American wars in the 1980s. Now he seems to be the latest president to fall victim to the vicious capitalist takeover of that country.
Costa Rican's are looking around, witnessing the government take over of precious resources in Venezuela and Bolivia, and are wondering where their country is headed.
