Memorial for Brad Will

October 27th of 2006 Brad Will (independent journalist) was killed by paramilitaires in Mexico. Brad was there to make a documentary about the indigenous struggle in Oaxaca.

Some activists from the Netherlands and Belgium were in Oaxaca in the beginning of October 2006 and worked closely with Brad.

26th of October 2007 they would like to organize a memorial for EVERY PERSON that was killed during the uprising against Ulises Ruiz Ortiz.
Please join us!!!

Poema dedicado a Brad Will – 1 ano de assassinato e impunidade
Por alexzapa, cmi fortal

Companheiro Brad,
Te conheci pouco,
Mas te conheci muito

Te conheci pelos vídeos dos ?sem vozes?
Pelas imagens documentadas
Pelas notícias do mídia independente relatadas

Indymedia!
Eu grito!

Das minhas lágrimas tímidas
Saem gotas de sangue de indignação
Que me manterão acordado
Pelo homem imprescindível que você foi
Esse homem ao qual Brecht já advertiu

?La lucha sigue? dizem os latinos
Eu te digo:
A Luta seguirei
Por ti, companheiro, por ti

Como aquela maldita bala me doeu
Ela não só atingiu seu pulmão
Atingiu meu mundo, uma legião
E, infelizmente, ela não vai parar…
Até que vençamos
E venceremos!

Brad Somos Todos!

Não se preocupe Hermano,
Você tomou o céu por assalto
Literalmente!

Do seu companheiro de Centro De Mídia Independente (Indymedia),
Alexandre Mourão (alexzapa)

Poema escrito no mesmo dia da morte de Brad Will, e readaptado após um 1 ano.

Dedicado também às outras várias pessoas mortas em Oaxaca. E a todos(as) que caíram na luta.

Fortaleza, Outubro de 2007
