Los Cabos Taxi Operators Insist That The Mexican Federal Government Stay Out Of BCS Dispute. - The taxi operators in Los Cabos are insisting that the BCS laws and the decision of the Mexican Supreme Court should be respected by the Mexican Federal government because they have no jurisdiction with regard to the transportation conflict. They say that the Court declared that the problem has to be solved by the BCS State Governor.
Francisco Rodriguez, the taxi operators attorney announced that in the meeting between the Secretaries of the different taxi unions, it has been determined after analyzing the advances that the authorities claim they have made, that these advances are not favorable at all to the business interests of the taxi operators. He called on the representatives of all three levels of government to respect the Law and to comply with the Supreme Court's decision. If the authorities refuse to do so, Rodriguez warned that the taxi operators would be forced to take legal action against all of the authorities and the Mexican Federation in order to have the Federation excluded from this affair and in order to force the State government to comply with the Court's resolution.
Rodriguez concluded by saying that the taxi operators are having a tough time since they have much less work this tourist season than in previous ones when the tourist transportation operators were working under a court protective order that allowed them to work in Cabo, but that now that the protective order has been rescinded by the Supreme Court, allowing the tourist transportes to be prevented from working in Cabo, they are not being stopped, and are in fact being protected by the PFP, Mexican Federal Police.
This has reduced the work load and opportunities of the taxi operators. They would prefer to not have to resort to protests, and road and hotel entrance blockages, but the authorities are not responding to the Supreme Court's orders and are not providing protection for the rights of the taxi operators and they are growing more and more restless and are being given no option other than to mobilize, hoping to force a solution favorable to their interests. - Mario E.

Tuesday Movie Night At Buena Vida - This Tuesday we will be showing "The Piano" Holly Hunter (who won a Best Actress Oscar) plays a strong-willed 19th century Scottish expatriate who arrives in New Zealand with her daughter (Anna Paquin) and her beloved piano. Although betrothed to a farmer (Sam Neill), Hunter falls for former Maori tribesman Harvey Keitel. This movie was done so beautifully. It is Holly Hunters best work. It has been a while since it first came out but it is worth seeing again. We will be open at 6:30 for dinner service and the movie will show at Sundown! Please call me if you have any questions! - Jessie Rutowski, jessierutowski[-at-]hotmail.com, 6121343100, Todos Santos
