Oaxaca- A victory in the Streets- 11/2/06

by Facilitated by Anna Tuesday, Nov. 07, 2006 at 5:15 AM

This video is of the events in Oaxaca on Nov.2 in front of the university of Oaxaca when the federal police tried to break in and destroy the radio station, the people's main communication tool to each other, and to the outside world. The whole town came out to defend and fight back and they won a great victory.

(Lo que sigue es una explanación para la gente de habla inglés, para ayudarles a entender de lo que se trata el video. Si alguin no está de acuerdo con lo que he escrito aquí, le pido el favor de informarme de mis errores. Gracias, Anna)

-The voice in the beginning is the voice of radio Oaxaca calling for citizens to come out and form barricades around the university to protect the radio station. "We cannot allow this important voice to be lost.''

- Then you see the people responding; creating barricades.

-You will see a man and a woman scolding the federal police, and appealing to them as fellow Mexicans with families; reminding them that they are no different than the people in the streets that they are attacking.

- The doctors making a statement; saying that some of the news media has been framing the movement in Oaxaca as being made up of gang members and criminals; (This framed by shots of the townspeople standing hand in hand to form barricades)

but, they say, "we are doctors; profesionals who are defending our city and helping the people. "Holding up his stethoscope, he says, "These are our weapons. With these weapons we fight and help our people and our compañeros."

- Then you see a member of the police saying that they have no intention of attacking the university or of arresting anyone. The lie to this is evident in the next shot where helicopters are shown dropping tear gas into the university.

- Then you see a couragous people; a people fighting together for a just cause, and in the end, winning. I watch this with tears...and only hope that I would find the courage to be like these people in the same situation.

On the right of the screen is a list of more videos that you can watch just by clicking on the links. One of them is the video that came out of Indymedia reporter Brad Will's camera after he was shot dead in the streets of Oaxaca last week.

I hope that this little recap helps all my English speaking compañeras and compañeros to understand the importance of this battle. This is the type of thing that people in Latin America have been dealing with for hundreds of years. Our government doesn't want us to know that this is what has been going on in our name, but now, with modern technology it is no longer hidden from us.

Our tax money is paying for this, and in the cases of the worst brutality and torture, the perpetrators are trained here in Fort Benning, Georgia at the School of The Americas. My friend Hector Aristizabal, a torture victim from Columbia, said that with knowledge comes grief....and yes, my tears have surprised me. But let's let our grief and our compassion work for us to give us the strength to make change. Let's support our sisters and brothers in their efforts to create justice in their countries. In doing so we will

create a just world; one in which as Subcomandante Marcos says, "Un mundo donde quepan todos." (A world where we all have a place.)

Please watch this video and pass it on.

A big abrazo to all,

Anna
