Ten years after the June 14, 2006 date when the popular uprising in Oaxaca began, we spoke with our compañero Fernando Lobo, writer and former broadcaster of Radio Plantón.
What is your perspective of what happened in Oaxaca in 2006?
At that time there was a huge conflict between the teachers’ union and the state government that was directly related to a wage demand. It was a matter of money. On the other hand, one of the strategies the union took was to not acknowledge the immediate authority- the governor, and instead engage in direct dialogue with the federal government. In this sense, this was the first moment that the idea of the removal of the governor was raised.
