Monterey Bay Chapter of California Faculty Association Resolution in Support of APPO

December, 2006 – We, the Executive Committee of the Monterey Bay Chapter of California Faculty Association, support the Asamblea Popular del Pueblo de Oaxaca-Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca (APPO) in its struggle of peaceful civil disobedience for social justice in Oaxaca. We demand that the Mexican Government stop it’s violent campaign against the demonstrators.

This means:

1. The immediate withdrawal of the Preventive Police Force;
2. A halt to paramilitary actions and against the APPO and arbitrary arrests of APPO members and supporters;
3. The immediate return of individuals who have been “disappeared;” and
4. The release of all political prisoners.
