Yo Compro …

El Mañana newspaper announces a kickoff to its new campaign to promote Nuevo Laredo that is going to start at 5:00pm tonight.

If you are on one of the four intersections they list, you can pick up a free bumper sticker that says “Yo compro en Nuevo Laredo” (I buy in Nuevo Laredo). It doesn’t say how long they will be there but I assume until they run out of stickers.

I am not sure how much good it will do other than to cover up the dent you might have in the bumper but it is a source of pride for some to say they buy locally. Good luck, Nuevo Laredo – you and Laredo really need it!

(extra note: I like the “yo compro en nuevo laredo” campaign but what is up with the only youtube video about it is this one indicating that Coparmex (Confederacion Patronal de la Republica Mexicana) is supporting the effort? It looks like my amateur self shot it – come on Coparmex, you can do better than that.)
