Civil Disobedience Tijuana Style
Las paraditas -- "the little ones who stand", more commonly referred to as street whores -- are taking a stand. After city officials ordered them off the streets, the ladies of the night decided to do something about it. From the LA Times:

"Their faces covered with blue handkerchiefs, about 200 prostitutes gathered in La Coahuila, as the red-light district is known, and twice marched across the city in a show of civil disobedience that culminated with a threat to strip on the steps of City Hall. City officials backed down and offered a compromise."
Well, I'm sure Henry David Thoreau would be proud. (Be sure to catch las paraditas' attorney's thoughts on Marilyn Monroe. Flattering stuff.)
