Mexico: APPO Leader Flavio Sosa Arrested

Mark in Mexico has four updates on the arrest of APPO leader Flavio Sosa in Mexico City. Juan Trujillo is far less enthusiastic about the detention and notes that “the spokesperson for the APPO, Florentino López, announced from hiding the start of a series of protests nationally and internationally to demand the liberation of these APPO leaders that were arrested Monday in Mexico City.” Ricardo Carreón wonders if the detention signals a stronger presidency. Ana Maria Salazar says yes: “this detention will be interpreted as the new policy of cero tolerance by the Calderón administration. Hit and then negotiate.”
