Oaxaca Solidarity action December 8th, 2006
Gather 5:00pm Murrow Park
March 5:30pm to Mexican Embassy 1911 Penn
Bring pots and pans!
As the people of Mexico continue their struggle for justice, autonomy, and dignity, the United States physically and economically supports violence against the poor.
The People’s Popular Assembly of Oaxaca has called for international solidarity actions on December 8th to tell the Mexican government that the whole world is watching.
In DC, we will gather in Murrow Park at 5pm, across from the World Bank (18th and H, NW). The World Bank props up governments that destroy poor and indigenous communities in Oaxaca. At 5:30 we will march to the Mexican Embassy (1911 Pennsylvania Ave, NW) to demand that the Mexican government be held accountable for the atrocities committed in Oaxaca.
Bring pots, pans, drums, loud noisemakers, and your friends for a raucous cacerolazo!
– the release of all political prisoners
– the resignation of the Oaxacan governor
– an investigation into all the disappearances
– and that the demands of the APPO be met.
