I think they were having problems because the president practically made the order of & according to the people is responsible for the deaths of 17 people who were protesting against him.

it's no true!, a Judge sent police to evict farmers from the land of landowners, economic groups, military and right-wing parties are the government right now :mad:, if someone read the Capital of Karl Marx, remember "the enclosures" of the process of land enclosure in England, it's the same situation :o

Paraguay will be isolated economically, no South American country recognized the new government

This is pretty interesting about the enclosure situation. The tv network news in the U.S. has said nothing on this situation.

Jenna Bush, daughter of Laura and George W Bush went to Paraguay to buy over 100,000 acres of land not too long ago. It was kept quiet. Such land, rich in natural gas and water aquifers seems the thing to do.

Maybe, but check this out:

The Mennonites, who include the traditional Amish sect of Pennsylvania, believe in a strict interpretation of the bible and often seek isolation in remote areas. But the Chaco land rush, which has seen prices rise from under $10 a hectare to over $200 in a few years, has made the sect worth at least $500m.

- John Vidal in Filadelfia , guardian.co.uk (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/oct/05/chaco-paraguay-deforestation), Tuesday 5 October 2010 21.41 BST



In Filadelfia, Mennonite teenagers barrel down roads outside town in new Nissan pickup trucks. Banks advertise loans for cattle traders. Gas stations sell chewing tobacco and beers like Coors Light. An annual rodeo lures visitors from across Paraguay.

Patrick Friesen, communications manager for a Mennonite cooperative in Filadelfia, said property prices had surged fivefold in recent years. “A plot of land in town costs more than in downtown Asunción,” said Mr. Friesen, attributing the boom partly to surging global demand for beef.

“Eighty-five percent of our beef is exported, to places including South Africa, Russia and Gabon,” he said. Citing concerns in some countries over foot-and-mouth disease, which Paraguay detected in its cattle herd in 2011, he continued, “We are currently focused on some of the less-demanding markets.”
