Felipe Calderón did not need this. Xóchitl Gálvez Ruiz, national Commissioner of Indigenous Peoples' Development, has handed in her resignation. She says that she is leaving on good terms with the new Mexican president but that his austerity plan did not leave her enough money to handle "the great quantity of requirements and demands that arrive daily to my office."
I think that this is a good lady, she's an engineer by profession, who has done a lot of good and she will be missed. She gained the trust of the EZLN (Zapatista Liberation Army in Chiapas), and they don't trust anyone, including each other, and her loss is a great loss.
While thugs and punks like Flavio Sosa run amok in the streets, Señora Galvan Ruiz gets things done. Or at least she used to.
I don't know where she'll go or what she'll do, but whatever it is it will be for the benefit of her people. I am sure, however, that she won't be manning barricades in the streets nor torching other people's property.
