Commerce in the village is re-activated


“Marina, write a shopping list for me because I’m going to town tomorrow!”


Marina felt angry and sad knowing that she could only make a list that added up to thirty thousand pesos, because that’s how they had deprived them of their right to buy and sell freely. Trade, along with the whole economy, was collapsing. They were powerless.


Times are changing, and business has been growing again now that we’re free.
