As has been made known to the public, yesterday, October 29th, 2006, Vicente Fox’s federal forces attacked the people of Oaxaca and their most dignified member, the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca, the APPO.
To the date, federal forces have killed at least three people, among them a young child; left tens of people wounded, among them many women from Oaxaca; and tens of people have been detained and illegally moved to military prisons. All of this in addition to the dead, detained, and disappeared since the beginning of the movement to demand the resignation of Ulises Ruiz as governor of Oaxaca.
