An open letter to Christians who vote

A Christian | Millions of American Christians have had enough of watching our faith being hijacked and warped for partisan political gain, and watching as "Christian" leaders annihilate Christ's message of love, compassion and peacemaking to replace it with a message of fear, arrogance, greed and warmongering. On November 7th, we'll reject the tactics of fear, hatred and deceit, and we'll vote Christ's values: love, compassion, gentleness, caring (including caring for gays and for women's medical privacy!), humility and peacemaking.

Local PRI Flexes Muscle

El Universal | The daily newspaper Reforma published evidence Wednesday that Elpidio Concha, a former PRI deputy implicated in the 2004 beating death of an opposition teacher, is now coordinating anti- APPO actions, including the march Tuesday in support of Gov. Ruiz.

Another daily, La Jornada, citing PFP sources, reported that operatives linked to the PRI were committing crimes and acts of violence in Oaxaca City, intending them to be blamed on APPO.

In a news conference Wednesday, Ramírez Leyva offered to assist federal troops by deploying 20,000 PRI members "to clean the streets of Oaxaca." He called for the arrest of Flavio Sosa and other APPO leaders, and criticized Interior Secretary Carlos Abascal for negotiating with "subversives." more...  0 Comments

Camera his weapon vs. injustice, Daily News Column

by Juan Gonzalez | Camera his weapon vs. injustice

When the bullets started to fly, New York photojournalist Bradley Will was clutching a camera, doing what he loved most - filming a group of downtrodden people fighting for respect in some forgotten corner of our world.
This was last Friday, on a narrow street on the outskirts of Oaxaca, Mexico, where Will, 36, a longtime member of New York's radical IndyMedia Center, had gone in early October to document an amazing story.

It is one our own national media somehow managed to ignore for five long months.
