And how much I have felt emotionally involved in the worldwide Occupy movement, despite living in a poor country far from the centers of plutocratic power. Ever since it began in Tunisia and Egypt, I have rejoiced to see a spontaneous movement of ordinary people – no leaders inciting them, simply an amorphous declaration of the same thing: “We have had enough!”
Still, living here in the Tierras Altas, I felt far removed from all that. Panamá, and this part of it in particular, usually seems so idyllic, so peaceful, that all the troubles elsewhere in the world are part of some other far more troubled world. Certainly not this one.
Until the same cry of “We have had enough!” came to the Tierras Altas.
