    Anti-Emo Riots in Mexico: ¡Pánico en el Disco!

    In our June issue, we chronicle the escalating violence inside Mexico against emo fans, there commonly referred to as "emos." The wave of thuggery made national headlines after hundreds of youths pummeled a handful of emos on March 7 in the central Mexican city of Querétaro's main plaza, resulting in three injuries and 28 arrests. Eight days later, dozens of self-styled punks, "darks" (goths), and skaters marched on a plaza in Mexico City where emos gather daily, and the ensuing war of words eventually deteriorated into a rock-hurling, bottle-throwing melee before police arrived.
