In 2006, improvised barricades went up in the Mexican city of Oaxaca to defend the city’s residents and members of the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca from  paramilitary  incursions  and  police  repression.  Composed  of  everything  from appropriated  buses  to  nails,  sticks  and  string,  and  organized  and  protected  by housewives and young kids from urban crews, the Oaxacan barricades cultivated an intimate and effervescent sociality of el pueblo (the people). Fifteen years earlier, in 1991, the Latvian tauta (the people or Volk) also constructed barricades in the streets
of  Rīga  to  shield  themselves  and  important  landmarks  from  Soviet  military  units.
