9/11: We still remember

Even overseas Sept. 11 is reverenced, as seen by this statue in a Costa Rican park.

“To you and your families the rest of us cannot begin to imagine the pain you have endured these past few years. But no matter how many years pass, no matter how many times we come together on this hallowed ground, know this, you will never be alone. Your loved ones will never be forgotten.”

President Barack Obama Sept. 11, 2012

Agriculture Protest

During an agriculture march from Central Park to the Democratic Assembly a young kid pulls an ox cart.

Costa Rican agriculture workers and farm owners from different farmer organizations came together July 31 to support a proposed law,  N° 18.070, that will exempt much of their agricultural land from taxes.  The protesters marched from Central Park to the Legislative Assembly to music and were greeted by a live band.  It was a true party with a purpose.
