Mexico's urban youth culture explosion

29 March 2013 Last updated at 00:58 GMT

This weekend - like every weekend for the past 30 years - thousands of punks, skinheads and goths will descend on Mexico City's El Chopo marketplace. It's a regular gathering of the Mexican capital's boisterous urban tribes.

This mega-city is in the midst of a youth explosion and it has created one of Latin America's most dynamic street cultures.

As the government struggles with corruption, a lengthy drug war and economic inequality, they are seeing increased resistance from Mexico's youth.

Michael Maher reports on the youth movement and its political implications.
