The Cornelius protest wasn't even much of a protest. It was just a few of us walking around the building, trying to talk to people and taking pictures.
But evidence of how much one or two people can make a difference: We scared the crap out of the Mexican government.
Whether it was hiding behind the blinds while waiting for us to leave...
Or covering up the side-doors with paper when we would stop and look inside from the sidewalk...
it was clear that a couple of bloggers were capable of throwing a wrench into the plans of a foreign, and hostile, government.
When we changed positions to take advantage of the public alley that ran next to the building they huddled together in a conference while at the same time trying to hide behind the pillars.
And when the cameras came out it seemed that everyone was shy... either that or they realize that they are criminals and wanted to hide their faces.
And the Mexican Consul General, THIS MAN, is too scared to talk to me or even make eye contact. (and I asked him for a minute of his time every time he walked outside) Actually, I was able to walk up and shake his hand when he first arrived, before I had been kicked off the property. He wasn't very enthuisastic to see me.
