The purple scar that cuts across Carmen Zalpa's nose and under her left eye has become a badge of courage for the Indian woman who heads a village committee in support of leftist leader Cuauhtemoc Cardenas. Zalpa was hit in the face by a brick last month during a confrontation with police who were escorting the ruling party's candidate for the state assembly on a campaign swing through her village of Acachuen. To protest the incident, Zalpa and dozens of other peasants have occupied the city hall in this rural town in the state of Michoacan and have built stone barricades in the streets to prevent the police from evicting them.
