New Yorkers occupy Mexican consulate


New York area Mexicans, Mexican-Americans and their supporters held a 24-hour vigil at the gates of the Mexican consulate in Manhattan June 19-20, to protest recent attacks in Chiapas that left an unarmed teacher dead and other unarmed Zapatistas wounded. Protesters charged the Mexican government with complicity in the attacks, carried out by a local "paramilitary" force.
