I tend to avoid Paraguayan political stories. I know that I never know the whole story. Things are just too complex and Kansas-Paraguay Partners is about mutual understanding not taking sides in political matters. However the story that has been widely reported in ABC Color and other papers is just too interesting and more about the emerging democracy than supporting a political position. It may be that social media and new political activism have made the Paraguayan Congress reconsider a decision. Part of the story is that business establishments have refused to serve the 23 senators that voted to support a colleague. Is this a tactic we could adopt in the north? Take a look at this BBC report on the matter.
