The sides are drawn, the lines are clear.

On one side are heavily armed military police provocateurs and aggressors with swastika razor haircuts menacing strikers.

On the other are unarmed workers prepared to risk everything for their (our) just demands. The struggle has now moved to the Zocalo.

Stand with Us! Stand Tall! See you this Thursday.
