I came across this monument to the Haymarket Martyrs in San Luis Potosí State (Central/Northern Mexico) this past December (06). Yo pasé una hora nada más en este pueblo en estado San Luis Potosí en diciembre de 2006.

Seeing only one hour of civic life in this town while in transit, I snapped a couple pictures of a monument to the formative event of today's global day of protest for the working class.

Within that hour, I found a spanish-language bicycle repair manual, passed the crumbling building of the Local for the National Education Workers Union (SNTE), witnessed a stop and patdown of basketball-playing young men by well-equipped and quite militarized local police, got a meal, and caught a bus further north.

Yo pasé una hora nada más en este pueblo en estado San Luis Potosí en diciembre de 2006.

Saqué estas fotos durante la hora en tránsito, mientras encontraba un libro de guía para arreglar bicicletas, paseaba para la oficina del SNTE local, miraba un discurso entre policía local y bien-equipado (y más como militares que policía) con unos jóvenes jugando basket, comía poquita, y encontraba mi bus para llevarme más norte.
