August 17th, 2007 – ChicagOtra writes: ChicagOtra and others protested the announced visit to Chicago of the governor of Oaxaca, Ulises Ruiz. Ruiz didn’t show up, but governors from several other Mexican states were feted at the Mexican Consulate. The activists outside urged the immigrant organizations invited by the Consul to the festivities to pass up the party and join the protest in support of the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca (APPO) and demanding freedom for the political prisoners being held in Mexico. The governors and other functionaries had to sneak in through the back door to avoid the protesters in front.
