Starbucks en el centro de San Miguel



Atención San Miguel

El pasado martes 25 de marzo, la reconocida cadena de cafeterías, Starbucks Coffee, abrió en San Miguel, justo contra esquina del Jardín, en la esquina de Hidalgo y Canal.

Esa misma tarde, cerca de 25 miembros del grupo activista Va por san Miguel—tanto nacionales como extranjeros—se manifestaron en contra de la presencia de Starbucks en el centro histórico.
Algunos dijeron que no estaban en contra de la firma sino del hecho que estuviera en el centro con un letrero en inglés, lo que va en contra de la esencia tradicional de San Miguel.

No es ningun secreto que el dueno de la franquicia, de staRbucks en San Miguel. es el ahora senador Luis Alberto villareal, y no se supone que el es el representante de los intereses de los Sanmiguelences?,.mas bien representa y muy bien los suyos propios y de su familia. es obio que su nivel de corrupcion y egolatria supera limites antes vistos en esta localidad, Y ademas parece que el actual presidente municipal es una marioneta del dicho senador, tampoco hay que ser muy inteligente para darce cuenta la manera en que el senor Villareal fracciono y vendio lo mas que pudo de San MIGUEL, cuanto recibiria?.. no lo sabemos . pero lo que si sabemos es le alcanza para comprar franquizias en el centro, y violar reglamentos de monumentos historicos , ante la complicidad de sus hipocritas complices en el ayuntamiento,ATTE JULIAN ARCOS.

Subject: Stopping the railroad expansion


So now we have two points of view.

One I will call "Local residents for ourselves" or "The parochial view". The mission statement sez we are concerned about our property values with a railroad blight in the neighborhood. We are concerned about criminal safety as migrants come in and live around freight trains parked in our neighborhood. We are concerned about safety and schoolchildren crossing an unprotected level crossing with multiple tracks. We are concerned about how we get to the other side with a 70-car train parked on the crossing. We will try to block the rail expansion with legal injunctions and local regulations. And we will continue having three hour meetings frequently with everybody talking about everything - that is a good system. And Kansas City Southern de Mexico says we can pay for our own bridge over the rail yard because that is la ley en Mexico.

The other one I call "Mexicanos por Mexico" with a mission statement that sez we are dedicated to blocking railroad expansion plans anywhere near San Miguel and its lake. We are a non-industrialized city with a history of culture, arts, tourism and all of Latin America recognizes it as the "Jewel of Mexico". It is about to be recognized as a World heritage site! All of Mexico recognizes this as the birthplace of Mexican Independence - it is the a point of pride in all of Mexico's sorry tragic history. The shores of this large body of water, Presa de Allende which feeds an agricultural breadbasket and a vast geographic area of Mexico, are no place to park freight cars with the risk of toxic spillage. We will have a streamlined steering committee with several subcommittees feeding in information and ideas and disseminating information for the Press to carry. We will line up press reports for publication throughout Mexico. We will use the local public radio to make sure that our next protest is not populated with gringos - this is a Mexican issue and the Mexicans should up front and leading this charge. We will use gringos for advice as ex-officio members of the subcommittees bcoz they have the experience in public relations campaigns, and the contacts worldwide. But Mexicans will carry this fight in Mexico and will decide policy in the steering committee.

The second one has appeal for all of San Miguel. It has national appeal. It has worldwide appeal with the toxicology issue included. We can win this one with a PR campaign. We need to make all of Mexico aware of the unpermitted actions that have happened so far. But time and timing is very important in a PR campaign, if we are going to go that route.

The first one is a trifling matter to a railroad bent on constructing a NAFTA corridor, 6-vehicle lanes wide, with multiple train tracks right across the US to Laredo. And in Mexico, will they continue this corridor? What will they ultimately do in the future? They are going to spend $100 million to upgrade the port of Lazaro Cardenas, and another $200 million on rail infrastrucure this year alone. This is considered good for Mexico! Everyone from President Cardenas on down at the Federal level, probably already thinks this is good for Mexico! So the parochial view is a loser.

Please give me your inputs on these two points of view as soon as possible. There is a general meeting tonight at 7pm at a home just over the track crossing in El Mirador.


Thanks ... Pierre

Es increible lo que pasa en este pais,lastima que no podemos retroceder el tiempo y es lo unico que no compra el dinero esperemos que al senador de quinta le sirva tanto que ha adquirido de mala manera y no le quite el sueño, que seguramente asi sera ya que la honestidad y la educacion no las conoce

¿Es en serio? No están en contra de la de presencia de Starbucks pero si contra un letrero en inglés, porque atenta con la esencia tradicional de San Miguel.

Pues entonces no sé en que municipio viven, si desde hace ya muchos años San Miguel de Allende no es de los Sanmiguelenses, sino de un grupo de chilangos y extranjeros que hacen y deshacen a placer, que se autoetiquetan como sanmiguelenses (Ciudadanos de San Miguel). La ciudad está llena de letreros en inglés.

No estoy justificando al señor ese, Villarreal, pero darse baños de pureza creo no va.

Entonces protestan por que se instaló un comercio en el centro, pero no protestan por el deplorable estado en que se encuentran la mayoria de las vialidades de toda la ciudad, entre ellas las del tan socorrido centro histórico. Ni protestan porque un gringo ocupa un cargo público en la administración municipal. Supongo que eso debe ser parte de la 'esencia tradicional'.

Ojalá de verdad protestaramos por eso y muchas cosas más, entre tropelías y soslayos, que ocurren en esta ciudad.
