Demonstrations and Vigils at Mexican Consulate

Join mobilizations and vigils this week at the Mexican consoulate to support the people of Oaxaca and the memory of those killed by the Mexican state, including indymedia journalist Brad Will. 5pm Tuesday and Wednesday, 10am and 5pm on Thursday.

Vicente Fox's decision to use the Federal Police (Policía Federal Preventiva -PFP) to repress the people of Oaxaca- as manifested through the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca (APPO)- represents the neo-fascist character of the Mexican government; who's only method of advancing the neo-liberal (imperialist) economic model is through violent repression of the people.

Through a plan elaborated by the Mexican National "Security Cabinet" of the Presidency of Vicente Fox(requested by the governor) a decision was made to utilize the Federal Police to repress the popular movement in Oaxaca; who's central demand is the resignation of the despotic assassin Governor of the State of Oaxaca Ulises Ruiz Ortiz.

As of noon Sunday October 29th, several elements of the Federal Police (PFP) logistically supported by helicopters began to attack the barricades set up by the Popular Assembly (APPO), with the intention to retake the capital of the State of Oaxaca and re-establish the neo-liberal order.

The Federal Police (PFP)- military disguised as police- confronted men, women, youth, seniors and children; the people of Oaxaca, who in their long history of struggle have demostrated and peacefully confronted the goverment for better conditions for all people of Oaxaca.

During the most recent confrontations, the Mexican goverment has tried to justify the use of the military as "necccesary". Even thought, the military police has taken control over a small part of the city, many marches have taken place and the people of Oaxaca has surrounded the police with human chains, as a new strategy to neutralize the violence. Contrary to what the goverment might have thought, the people of Oaxaca is reorganizing knowing that there will more attacks brutal against them.

The Popular Assembly (APPO) reported the assassination of Compañero Roberto Lopez Hernandez, worker of the Social Security Institute; Jorge Alberto Beltrán, member of the Security Commission of the Popular Assembly (APPO); the death of a 15 year old and a multitude of injured and detained.

In the country side of Oaxaca, many communities have also been brutalized by the police but they are also resisting, much of this resistance has been led by women since their men have migrated.

Considering the brutal repression taking place against the heroic people of Oaxaca at the hands of the Federal, PAN led government of Vicente Fox- puppet of the Transnational Corporations- as well as the PRI led State Government of Ulises Ruiz Ortiz, we see it necessary to call on all the community in Los Angeles to join the struggle of teacher and the people of Oaxaca.

Join us for the following actions:

Tuesday, Octuber 31, Demostration in front of the Mexican Consulate 5:00 PM

Wednesday, November 1, Demostration in front of the Mexican Consulate 5:00 PM

Thursday, November 2, Demostration at 10:00 AM and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Death) / Vigil 5:00 PM. This is going tobe a traditional oaxaquen@ celebration
