After blockading the state high way for six hours on Wednesday, the people of Atenco rose up in solidarity with their embattled flower vendor friends in nearby Texcoco. Later in the early hours of Thursday, hundreds of police entered the city center to violently evict hundreds of people gathered to defend the center.
