Mexican police attacked activists and residents in the town of San Salvador Atenco in the State of Mexico in early May, killing one, injuring scores, and jailing over 200. The police attack on Atenco followed a violent police assault on striking steelworkers in Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán that left two dead and several severely injured. Local residents believe that the Fox government was taking revenge on Atenco activists for their success four years ago in blocking the construction of a new airport.
