Brutal force continues to be exerted by the Mexican state upon the people
of Oaxaca. What more can we learn about the situation? And how can this
knowledge inform our actions or activities here? How can individuals
living in this context contribute to the rebellion that is taking place in
Oaxaca? What forms can solidarity take in this instance?

Barucha Calamity Peller, who has participated in anti-authoritarian
collectives in Mexico for the past 4 years, has just returned from Oaxaca
where there has been a widely defended popular uprising and where dozens
of people have died and disappeared in this past week alone. She will give
a presentation on the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca (APPO), the
life at the barricades, international solidarity and the brutal repression
and assassinations at the hands of paramilitaries and police throughout
last month and specifically on November 25th. Her presentation and first
hand accounts will also include a slideshow and recent videos from Oaxaca.
Representatives from the Friends of Brad Will network will join in the
discussion about local solidarity efforts.

This event is hosted by the 16Beaver Group and Not An Alternative
collective.  http://www.16beavergroup.org
