Video from Police Repression of Electricians in Ecatepec, Mexico State

This video is the unprovoked federal police attack on the Mexican Electrical Workers Union (SME) in Cerro Gordo in Ecatepec, Mexico State.  This attack left one man "gravely wounded" and three people detained, at least who of whom were reported to have been severely beaten.



To add insult to injury, La Jornada reports that after the police beat and arrested people in Mexico State, they tore down their strike banners and burned them.

It's true. Sorry, but for some reason the user took down the video. It's a shame, it was a good video. I can't find another copy anywhere. If anyone can, please post the link! This just goes to show that we need to mirror videos.
