Editor's Comment: And so, it begins. Look for the government of Panama to be finding new ways to spend money in the indigenous areas. Now that he has declared "peace" and relented on the mining issue, he will be trying to find new ways to make these people happy with him and his administration. Lots of ways. Meaning, lots of money, projects, investments in infrastructure, you name it. He needs to get these votes back into this camp, and he can't afford to spend the rest of his term in office fighting with them.
