Freedom for Anarchist Prisoners in Oaxaca!!!!

Freedom for Oscar and Sacramento!!!!

Anarchists and anti-authoritarians have played a vital

role in the struggle against the government of Ulisses

Ruiz Ortiz in Oaxaca. From Magonistas like the CODEP

and CIPO-RFM to the Bloque Autonomo (Autonomous Bloc)

and the Ocupacion Intercultural en Resistencia,

anarchists and anti authoritarians have had an

important presence in maintaining barricades in the

face of attacks from paramilitaries and police as well

as helping repel the PFP (Federal Preventative Police)

during street battles in front of the University, in

media and cultural projects and spaces, political

prisoner support and within the APPO itself.

As the PFP finally penetrated the barricadesof Oaxaca

in November the hunting of activists began. Among the

many prisoners being held in jails around Mexico are

anarchist activists Oscar Santa Maria Caro and

Sacramento Delfino Cano Hernandez who were arrested on

November 30th in Oaxaca.

They are being charged with various crimes and have

endured physical and mental torture in jail. Both face

bails of more than ,000 US dollars and need the

support of anarchists all over the world.

(The following text is loosely translated from part of

a statement released by the Todxs Somos Presxs [We Are

All Prisoners] anarchist collective in Mexico, an

awesome collective dedicated to supporting the

political prisoners of Oaxaca, and all of Mexico)

Oscar Santa Maria Caro,

20 years old from Oaxaca, has participated in various

anarchist and punk collectives. Is part of the RATA

collective, which focuses on animal liberation, and

more recently has participated in the Bloque Autonomo

[AutonomousBloc], and the Ocupacion Intercultural en

Resistencia [Intercultural Occupation in Resistance]

Oscar has been part of the struggle in Oaxaca since it

started. He was detained by armed plain clothed

members of the PFP in the streets of Oaxaca and has

since been held as a prisoner. Oscar has been tortured

physically and psychologically since his detention.

Sacramento Delfino Cano Hernandez,

29 years old from the State of Mexico, Sacramento is a

student of philosophy and psychology at UNAM [the

National Autonomous University of Mexico]. Sacramento

moved to Oaxaca to participate in the struggle, he was

detained along with Oscar Santa Maria. Sacramento has

also been beaten and tortured in jail.

Oscar and Sacramento were arrested on November 30th

by armed plain clothed police as they left the house

where they were staying in Oaxaca. They were accosted

by men with guns and thrown into separate automobiles

which drove around the city while they were

interrogated and beaten when they refused to answer

questions and later taken to jail. In the prison the

police threatened to kill them both and also

threatened to rape female political prisoners if

Sacramento and Oscar didn’t give information about

other activists.

The police say that they found molotov cocktails, bags

of marbles, knifes and other tools to make weapons on

Sacramento and Oscar. The police also claim that

Sacramento was driving a stolen pickup truck, an

absurd claim since he doesn’t know how to drive.

Both Oscar and Sacramento are being held in the

regional prison CERESO in Miahuatlan de Porfirio Diaz,

Oaxaca en Hall B, Cell 5.


1. That the authorities have offered our comrades

freedom if they sign self incriminating confessions

that are contrary to their ideas and dignity.

2. The Government of Oaxaca has invented crimes to

unjustly keep our comrades imprisoned. All of these

prisoners are innocent of the crimes that they are

accused of.

3. In Mexico and Oaxaca people are tortured,

persecuted, raped and assassinated for political

reasons, for being social activists.

We Demand:

1. Punish the police that have made up lies about our

comrades Santa Maria Caro and Sacramento Delfino Cano

Hernandez: Official Pedro Canseco Galvan, Police

Officer Adan Alvarez Arrona, and Police Officer Elias

Garcia Miguel.

2. The immediate and unconditional release of all

political prisoners of Oaxaca, Atenco, Mexico,and the


3. Justice for activists murdered by the Mexican


4. Punish the murderers, rapists and torturers, of the

PFP and State Police of Oaxaca, and the State of


5. Cancel the Apprehension Orders [warrants] against

social activists.

6. Justice for our International comrades who have

been expelled from the country for seeing the reality

of the Mexico from the view of those who face

injustice daily.

No One is Free until we are all free!

Tear down the Prison Walls!

Dissolve All Forces of Repression!
