December 19th, 2006 – san diego indymedia volunteer writes: The courageous people of Oaxaca continue to resist amidst continuing occupation by federal forces, detentions, violence, terror, repression and torture. On December 10, nearly 400,000 people filled the streets in the Eighth MegaMarch to demand the release of political prisoners. Most recently, 2000 women marched through Oaxaca City and then met the buses carrying 43 released prisoners, who had been imprisoned outside of Oaxaca in Nayarit, a 24hr bus ride from their families.
On December 10, the local solidarity group VAPPOR OAXACA held a festival outside the Mexican Consulate in Little Italy that featured informational speeches and updates, political and traditional Oaxacan music, and an open mic (Photos: from r.l. rodriguez | from Miguel | from donkilo). The group will be holding another festival at Chicano Park on December 22 at 5:00PM in solidarity with the EZLN’s call for a global mobilization on the 22nd.
