Protest & Vigil today, Saturday, October 28, 2006, at 5pm
Place: The Mexican Consulate, 8th Street and J Street, Sacramento, CA 95814
We protest the murder of representatives of the Asamblea Popular del Pueblo de Oaxaca (APPO) yesterday and the killing of IndyMedia journalist William Bradley Roland by paramilitary forces, reportedly municipal police officers. The Oaxacan people have supported the strike demands of teachers of the Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación (SNTE) and the state authorities of Governor Ulises Ortiz Ruiz of the PRI party have responded with violent measures to stop the Teachers’ popular support. At least 15 other APPO members were wounded in the violent attack. [see El Universal newspaper link, Spanish, http://archivo.eluniversal.com.mx/primera/27863.html)
We call upon the government of Presidente Vicente Fox not to use the Mexican military against the APPO, the teachers, or the supporters. We demand an end to the paramilitary reign of terror against the Oaxacan people and that state and federal security forces be called back and not be used against the people.
Protests, demonstrations, news conferences, and vigils are occurring in several U.S. cities today, including San Francisco and Oakland in solidarity with the people of Oaxaca.
