Members of Tijuana's SWAT team, the Special Forces, march beside the Han Young factory, as they prepare to illegally reopen the plant and bring in strikebreakers. After fighting for their union for a year, workers struck Han Young on May 22, 1998, in the first legal strike by an independent union in a maquiladora.
