OAXACA, Mexico (AP) -- Federal police in riot gear and armored cars took up positions on the outskirts of this southern Mexican city on Sunday, as leftist protesters who have taken charge of the streets stood firm at their barricades of tree trunks and hijacked trucks.
Teachers, whose strike over pay raises in May began the uprising in Oaxaca, agreed to go back to work on Monday, and the federal presence appeared designed to bolster law and order ahead of their return. But some strikers and their leftist supporters were outlining plans for street-by-street resistance.
From this article, though, comes the best reason ever for the 2nd Amendment, and it comes from a Mexican housewife. Referring to the Federales:
"They're going to kill us. It's not fair," said Juana Garcia, a 48-year-old housewife. "We can't do anything, we have no weapons."
