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
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
3. In Mexico and Oaxaca people are tortured,
persecuted, raped and assassinated for political
reasons, for being social activists.

comrades Santa Maria Caro and Sacramento Delfino Cano

these prisoners out of jail. Each prisoner faces a
bail of about ,000 US dollars.

prisoners as well as how to support anarchist
collectives working in Oaxaca e-mail (in Spanish) :
