November 24th, 2006 – Barucha Calamity Peller writes: Cinco Señores barricade, positioned in front of the university to protect the radio within it and the autonomy of the university, is the last major barricade in Oaxaca City. Some of the most rebellious elements within the APPO have been the students and the barricade defenders at the University Benito Juarez. The barricade is known as the “Barricade of Victory” for the defeat of thousands of federal preventive police by merely a few hundred people who defended the university radio during an attempted eviction on Nov. 2nd.
Update: more information on the exploitative process which values natural resources more than the lives of campesin@s.
A list of US, Canadian and European corporations profiting from death and repression in Oaxaca. These US, Canadian and European companies play a major role in propping up Oaxaca’s bloody regime.
November 21st, 2006 – evil writes: These companies do business in Oaxaca with the corrupt PRI government of Ulises Ruiz Ortiz and under Plan Puebla Panama. They are part of the repression and they need to be held accountable! They need to divest or face up to the crimes against humanity and against the people of Oaxaca that they play a major part in by propping up the corrupt regime of Governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz and the PRI. We know the truth. Start hitting these bastards where it hurts until the killing stops in Oaxaca, for justice and for Brad.
