  2. Misericordia a los poderosos, dejen de matar a mis hermanos, amor para los que ya murieron, que dieron su vida por un ideal cosa que jamas los que estan sentados en el poder podran hacer, pero llegara el dia que se atormenten pensando en cada uno de los que mataron.
    Estube en el poder decidi ya no estar ahi, apoyo a los maestros y les mando mi mas sentido pesame a los familiares y a las madres de los que han muerto.

  4. Greece, Athens: Solidarity demo to the people of Oaxaca

    On the 31st of October and despite the initial rain some 200 people mainly anarchists gathered outside the Mexican Embassy in Athens. Many banners were hanged, flyers were spread about while brochures were handed out to passers by and informing them about the situation Oaxaca and the recent deaths by the paramilitary.

    The riot police was blocking the entrance to the embassy at all times while many more were located at nearby streets. Anarchist, anti-state and anti-authoritarian slogans were shouted for about 2 hours.

    Just before leaving the embassy red paint and stones were hurled towards the building and the riot police.

  10. A small crowd of Grand Junction citizens showed their solidarity with the struggle in Oaxaca and honored the memory of murdered Indymedia journalist Brad Will on Tuesday night.

    A candlelight vigil was held on the steps of the federal courthouse, calling attention to the unchecked violence in Oaxaca. The message was clear: We mourn the death of journalist Brad Will, and demand justice for the citizens of Oaxaca.

    The event was covered by local media, and the airing of this story will be the first mention of Brad Will or Oaxaca’s situation in the local Grand Junction news.
