Puerto Rico: Environmental Activist Turns Himself In

  19 November 2007

Puerto Rican environmental activist "Tito Kayak" turned himself in to police on November 14 after a spectacular televised escape, following a week-long protest atop a 200-foot construction crane in San Juan. He was protesting a disputed luxury development that environmentalists warn will cause serious damage to public beaches. Some Puerto Rican bloggers aren't impressed, while others look at the underlying causes that led to the protest.
