What’s been going on in Oaxaca?

May 22nd, 2006: Thousands of Oaxacan teachers went on strike demanding a pay increase to cope with the high cost of life.

June 14, 2006: State repression, tear gas canisters and bullets shot from helicopters left some dead and many injured; this radicalized the teachers, who urgently added to their demand the destitution of the governor of Oaxaca, Ulises Ruiz. After the fraudulent state elections, Ruiz became governor and soon banned protesting as a means of popular expression in Oaxaca. This added to the discontent of the wider community of Oaxaca, Hundreds of thousands of them joined the Teachers in the streets and in at sit-in's.

Since May 25th, the Negotiating Popular Commission concluded its last meeting with the governor, the Commission has not seen him again. The people no longer present their demands before him or his representatives, they won't accept their money or their "proposals." The people want to rule themselves.

July 11th, 2006: Over 350 popular organizations, indigenous communities, labor unions, and civil organizations formed the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca (APPO). APPO entered the arena with a wave of peaceful and civil disobedience with which it sought to mark their discontent against the government. The people are APPO, APPO is the people, and as such they have assumed the political role in Oaxaca. If APPO chooses to, they block entrances to downtown's luxurious resorts, the airport, the streets, etc. Its popular strength has grown so much that the state government had no choice but to cancel the official Guelaguetza celebration. The teachers and organized citizens organized their own alternative Guelaguetza.

July 22nd, 2006: Radio Universitaria (University Radio), controlled by the movement was attacked by 20 unknown men, using highly sophisticated weapons. That same day, unidentified men threw molotov cocktails into community organizers' homes. including Human Rights organizations and the Section 22 of the National Union of Educational Workers.

In Oaxaca, the civil disobedience is turning into a popular uprising that is far from vanishing, one that radicalizes itself by the day.
