OAXACA: MEXICO’s WATERSHED.

ad.s | Mass protests against fraud in the wake of the Mexican
presidential elections this summer and a
six-months-old standoff in Oaxaca between the
authorities and protesters have converted Mexico into
a hotbed of insurrection. The target is a long-ruling
oligarchy of hacienda owners and industrialists who
may have underestimated populist power buoyant today
on mass communication techniques and encouraged by the
swing to the left on the Latin American continent.

Worldwide Action to Take Place in Support of Oaxaca on November 20

fff | On October 27, paramilitaries in Oaxaca, Mexico murdered Indymedia journalist Brad Will. He is one of dozens who have lost their lives at the hands of pro-government forces while participating in the largely nonviolent resistance to government oppression in that region. Mexican president Vicente Fox used Brad’s death as a pretext to send 4,000 federal police into the city of Oaxaca; these forces are systematically brutalizing the population.

The people of Oaxaca have not backed down – through days of courageous fighting, they have managed to protect their radio station at the university, repelling machine gun wielding armored police with only sticks, stones, and hope. On November 5, tens of thousands marched through the streets of Oaxaca, calling for the federal police to leave.
