Photos of Oaxaca's 5th MegaMarcha: San Felipe to Oaxaca City (part 1)
On September 1st, Oaxaca's 5th MegaMarcha took place starting in the community of San Felipe and ending at the zócalo in the center of Oaxaca City. Hundreds of thousands of people lined the streets and marched to demand the immediate departure of Ulises Ruiz Ortiz (URO), liberation for political prisoners, the cancellation of 70 government arrest warrants for people involved in the leaderless Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca (APPO, by its Spanish initials) movement and the desire for popular governance. San Felipe was the home to José Jiménez Colmenares, a mechanic married to a teacher, who was shot in the street while participating in a march organized by APPO on August 10th.
