Oaxaca, Mexico: Video of federales entrance into city

In this video you'll see the federal police using front-end loaders to move barricades out of their way. You can also see some people throwing rocks. What you will not hear are any gunshots nor rocket explosions nor even see any tear gas. This confrontation took place early and was most typical of the faceoffs around the city. The big battle that took place in front of Tech University was atypical of the day. In this film it appears that there are more camermen and reporters than either police or protesters. That was not the case for all the confrontations.
