Oregon Day of Solidarity with the People of Oaxaca

Oregon Oaxaca Solidarity writes: November 20 is Revolution Day in Mexico. The Zapatistas have called for a General Strike in Mexico with solidarity with the popular movement in Oaxaca, and have called for actions internationally.

The people of Oaxaca are engaged in a courageous struggle to build a popular democratic government that values citizens over corrupt political and economic interests. They are taking back their government from a discredited governor and those who use violence to keep him in power. The people of Oaxaca now face a repressive occupation by Federal military police forces and terrorist acts of disappearances.

3:00: Oaxaca Solidarity Rally, Pioneer Square (Downtown Portland)

3:30: March to Mexican Consulate (1234 SW Morrison St.)
