Human Rights Activists Protest at the Mexican Consulate in San Diego
by via SD-IMC
On Monday, human rights activists responded to brutality in Oaxaca against a people’s celebration of Guelaguetza, a traditional festival, by educating and protesting at the Mexican Consulate in San Diego.
On July 16, state and federal forces in Oaxaca City attacked members of APPO (Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca), people participating in the popular celebration and journalists, leaving at least one dead, numerous injuries and over 60 detained or disappeared (en1, en2; es1, es2). The popular Guelaguetza was an alternative to the government-supported celebration, co-opted from the traditional holiday by commercial tourist interests.
