San Salvador Atenco, Mexico
TO MATCH STORY LIFE MEXICO AIRPORT.
A Resident sweeps in front of two cannons from Mexico's revolution in
the main square of the central Mexican town of San Salvador Atenco, in
this January 4, 2002 photo, where residents are bracing to battle the
government over a new airport that would be built on their farmland.
The town's inhabitants, armed with machetes, say they will reject the
government's offer to buy the land, where corn, wheat and beans are
grown, and they plan to fight to the death to keep their fields.
