TO THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA:
TO THE APPO:
TO THE MEDIA:
TO THE PEOPLE OF MEXICO IN GENERAL:
At present, the popular Oaxacan movement is in the vanguard of social movements in Mexico and in Latin America, and finding itself snared by the political class and its imminent demise, the 2nd National Student & Youth Conference, held November 11th 2006 proclaims its solidarity with the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca (APPO) and calls attention to communities of resistance as follows:
1. We consider maintaining the barricades until the removal of both Ulises Ruiz Ortiz and the PFP from the state of Oaxaca, and in fact their strengthening, to be living evidence of the momentum of the movement, and support those who are maintaining them, and thus are against the negotiations for their removal.
2. Continuing to protect the installations of Radio Universidad (as well as the campus) as a territory in resistance, we reject the return to class and demand that the faculty and administration also take this position. We hold responsible for any act of repression Luís Martínez Solís (UABJO administrator), Leticia Mendoza Toro, Martín Gamboa, and their collaborators or any others who promote the return to class in order to favor the strengthening of groups of hired guns and PRIista militants who foster confrontation with the University students who guard the Radio station at UABJO.
3. The reestablishment of Radio Universidad´s signal, being the most accessible media for the citizenry, which facilitates their participation in the popular Oaxacan movement.
4. The immediate release of political prisoners, as well as the presentation of life of the disappeared of Oaxaca and Mexico.
NOT ONE STEP BACK IN THE STRUGGLE OF THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA!!
ULISES RUIZ ORTIZ AND THE PFP: GET OUT OF THE STATE OF OAXACA!!
