Mexico City Suffers Under Peaceful Protest

August 2, 2006 By: Mark Rogers Travel Agent

In Mexico City, supporters of presidential candidate Manuel Lopez Obrador have staged a peaceful protest in a demand for a vote recount of the recent election results. Obrador's supporters set up hundreds of tents along the capital's Reforma Avenue, shutting down traffic and access to businesses, including tourist attractions such as the National Anthropology Museum and Chapultepec Park. It's estimated that reduced tourism alone will cost Mexico City a staggering $12 million a day. "Our business is down about 20 percent," says Vincent Hoogewijs, general manager of The Four Seasons Mexico City D.F. "We have had groups cancel their reservations for this week and next week, but not months out." Hoogewijs estimates the hotel has lost 550 room nights as a result of the protest. "We have no idea when it will end," he says. "But thankfully it's been peaceful so far."
