PoliSci: WTO x EMO

Lately, most of the focus on our neighbors to the south has been based around immigration. However, infamous hipster rag Vice has devoted its latest issue to all things Mexican. They even found time to weigh in on the most horrific/depressing/comical riots in recent memory: Mexico City's Emo Wars. A few weeks back, 200 Emo kids and an equal number of police gathered to protest a recent spike in Punk-on-Emo violence. Various "lame subcultures", as Vice so eloquently portrays them, have apparently been fighting for control of the city for years. Bar up the Hot Topic windows, 'cause this could escalate into a full-scale siege reminiscent of the Battle in Seattle. At least ours had a decent soundtrack.
