Yucatan: five anti-Bush protesters still behind bars

Two months after the detention of a group of young people protesting the visit of President George Bush to the southern Mexican city of Merida, Yucatan state, five remain behind bars, unable to pay bail which has been set at 30,000 pesos ($3,000). The only woman detained, Victoria Texeira, has been denied bail because she is accused of violently attacking a reporter. (La Jornada, May 18)
