To Go Or NOT To Go

There are many beautiful places to see in this big world, but touring these breathtaking locations may carry a dangerous price tag.

Journalist Brad Will died in Oaxaca, Mexico on October 27, 2006. He was filming a documentary of the area and people, where the violence is at an all time high. Will was unfortunately shot and killed while filming. His story was recently told at a lecture/documentary presentation held at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts.

‘Public announcements: These are temporary notices meant to let travelers know about ”terrorist threats and other relatively short-term conditions that pose significant risks or disruptions to Americans.”
This is where State told people to expect massive crowds in Germany during the recent World Cup, but also where it advises U.S. citizens to ”avoid travel” altogether to Mexico’s Oaxaca City, where a labor revolt has killed at least nine people in recent months.’
