"True To My Pledge" is the first of a two-part documentary about the human rights violations during the current conflict in Oaxaca. "True To My Pledge" documents some of the horrors committed against the civil society of Oaxaca, and shows the strategy of state terrorism employed by the local governor. To date 25 known deaths have been reported, and yet there have been no criminal accusations or investigations although everybody knows who is responsible for these murders.
Mal de Ojo T.V. is a collective of filmmakers and media makers, which has formed in Oaxaca in response to the conflict. June 14th will be the first public screening of “True to My Pledge” in Oaxaca City. Out of concern for our security as filmmakers we are inviting other collectives and interested people to show this film on the June 14 anniversary in different parts of the world as a way to protect ourselves and also to let people know what’s going on here in Oaxaca. We need more international pressure on the Mexican government to make the murderers pay for their offenses.
