Oaxaca Solidarity Demonstrations in the US

November 29th, 2006 – Oaxaca is under siege. More than 140 people were arrested November 23rd through 25th and three were killed. The repression has reached new heights, with disappearances occurring daily. The Federal Police (PFP) are deploying special operation units to crush the popular uprising, and have issued statements declaring that they will do whatever it takes to put an end to the movement by December 1st, when the new government takes power.

APPO, the popular assembly of the peoples of Oaxaca, has issued a call for solidarity demonstrations on December 1st. International attention and pressure is desperately needed.

  3. I screened the film Granito de Arena for my university reading class this morning to give them some background on the history of the teachers’ strikes in particular, and the effects of globalization & corruption on education and on the grassroots communities in this state.
    We have been following some of the events in Oaxaca as I teach on
    the Texas Mexico border where many student are bi-national… and also
    several are education majors heading for classrooms themselves. We almost did not get to see the film because of technical difficulties but finally got it working in black and white…I hope my small efforts help fill holes caused by mainstream media’s lack of coverage of/misrepresentation of issues such as this.
