A List of US, Canadian and European Corporations Profiting from Death and Repression in Oaxaca

evil | These companies do business in Oaxaca with the corrupt PRI government of Ulises Ruiz Ortiz and under Plan Puebla Panama. They are part of the repression and they need to be held accountable! They need to divest or face up to the crimes against humanity and against the people of Oaxaca that they play a major part in by propping up the corrupt regime of Governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz and the PRI. We know the truth. Start hitting these bastards where it hurts until the killing stops in Oaxaca, for justice and for Brad. more...  0 Comments

NYC IMC statement on Caña Cadeza Investigation

NYC IMC | Here's what we do know: the Governor of Oaxaca, Ulises Ruiz Ortiz, has a proven track record of sending plainclothes paramilitaries to commit murder and other human rights violations against the people of Oaxaca. We do not trust him or any of his underlings - underlings who include Oaxaca Prosecutor General Lizbeth Caña Cadeza. We have absolutely no confidence in the results of the "investigation" of Brad Will's murder carried out by Prosecutor Caña Cadeza. more...  2 Comments

Rally in Support of El Puente Academy for Peace and Justice

El Puentista | On Friday; October 6th, the El Puente Academy for Peace and Justice, a nationally celebrated public high school, was summarily evicted from its home of 13 years (211 South 4th Street) by the New York City Department of Education (DOE). Citing their "sudden" awareness of worsening building conditions (the same conditions that drove El Puente for years to demand DOE support), the DOE dangerously and disrespectfully removed the Academy's operations to M.S. 50 literally overnight, without any prior consultation with the students, parents, administrators or teachers of either school community. El Puente calls for your support. more...  1 Comments

PFP and APPO clash in Oaxaca

John Gibler | Here are some photos from a brief clash between the PFP and the APPO. As a march was passing by the PFP barricade, some people in the crowd threw rocks at the police, who responded by firing tear gas. The APPO retreated a few blocks, built a new barricade of their own and fired bottle rockets through plastic tubes at the police. The PFP continued to fire tear gas. At least 40 people were overwhelmed by gas, three were injured by the grenades, 15 were detained, but seven released. The APPO called on its members to retreat and prepare for the Nov. 25th offensive.

Brad Will's Second Murder (English)

Carlos Vigueras (trans. by Stacy) | Why now do the expert and forensic services of the Mexican government show a new version that turns it around 360 degrees and puts in judgment fabric that Brad Will was assassinated by people from the government of Ulises Ruiz and it exonerates them of any responsibility to blame somebody else? It is obvious that there are tricks and obscuring in order to justify the murder of Brad Will and to cast the blame onto the APPO so that the weight falls on them and not on the true guilty ones that enjoy all impunity to continue using their arms against the multitude. more...  0 Comments
