I do not trust any news source. The media is bought and paid for by those secretly in power, who engineer and manipulate events and spin outcomes and tell the talking heads and comedians what to say. They study the hypnotic effect the TV and Internet has on the voting population.
Among the most well documented of these struggles has been at Plachimada in Kerala, where the Coca Cola Virudha Samara Samiti [Anti Coca Cola Struggle Committee] organized a mass rally in August 2002 to protest the appropriation of 1.5 million litres of water daily by the Coca Cola company.

Many Puerto Ricans already had college degrees by the time they reached New York and were moving into white collar jobs and upper education. This increased population and earning power resulted in increased animosity from other minority neighbors, especially Italians on the East Side.
