The days of the Huelga's are coming to an end. There's a new sheriff in town.

There is a noticeable difference in how the former administration handled the huelga's
and how the current administration is handling them. These guys look like they're riding
through a Cartel strong hold somewhere deep in the hills of Mexico ready for a shoot out.
Those guns are clearly being pointed at people's residences not military targets.

Last Thursday all hell broke lose in Salcedo. Main road from Villa Tapia was blocked off. Many burning tires. People shooting off guns. Your basic Huelga by the labor unions. But on steroids of what I’m told. People are getting very pissed off that the governments not keeping their promises from before the election. Everyone was promised jobs, food and dismissal of corrupt politicians. Checks in the mail. Rinse and repeat if the labor leaders do not get paid off.

Quite a few things have been achieved with huelgas: construction of roads , water sources, schools, etc, but also many lives have been lost.
Some people see the huelga guys as heroes. It's often the only way to get the authorities to "Listen".
Others see them as thugs, as they also damage both private and public property. Huelgas are also bad for business, as you have to shut down for one or several days, which means no income.

I see the military and police have about the same training as their Haitian counterparts
