Cancun Tourism: Where are the Maya?

From the Narco News School of Authentic Journalism comes this 15min documentary about the Maya experience in the Mexican tourist mecca of the Yucatan. A short blurb about the video from the groups youtube page:
In eleven days and nights of February 2010, the nine members of the Narco News School of Authentic Journalism's documentary filmmaking group reported, investigated, interviewed, filmed and produced this 15:34 documentary about the descendants of the original indigenous peoples of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula where the tourist industry from Cancun to Playa del Carmen now exploits them as workers, residents and in name.

    I wonder why there are no protests over this on college campuses. Students have successfully protested against sweatshop labor, and this is equally exploitative - and happening in Spring Break Central.
