Ulises Ruiz Ortiz: Asesino in Oaxaca, Mexico
Brad Will, an independent journalist with Indymedia, was gunned down by pro-government paramilitaries on October 27, 2006 in Oaxaca. The website UlisesRuizAsesino.com exists to provide pointers to action you can take to vindicate Brad’s death and everyone else who has been killed fighting against neoliberal corruption in Oaxaca.
Mexican embassies and consulates around the world are hearing our outrage and grief about the deaths in Oaxaca. You may be able to find a protest near you at UlisesRuizAsesino.com or use a listing of Mexican Consulates in the U.S. & Canada to organize a demonstration.
