by México Solidarity Committee

The newly formed Mexico Solidarity Committee is pleased to announce
that a representative of the Teachers Union in Oaxaca will be at its
meeting to give us an update on the struggle in Mexico.

Fernando
Mendoza, a teacher from the State of Oaxaca, Mexico, who is on the
Executive Board of Section 22 of the SNTE, the Teachers Union. This
union is part of the Democracy Tendency (Tendencia Democracia) that
has helped to lead the struggle for a uniform wage for all teachers
in Oaxaca and for the resignation of the notoriously corrupt Governor
of Oaxaca, Ulises Ruiz.

At our October 19 meeting, we'll hear an update from Fernando Mendoza
and plan our activities in the coming month. During the week before
November 20, when the popularly elected Andrés Manuel López Obrador
is inaugurated President by the National Democratic Convention
(Convencion Nacional Democratica or CND), the Mexico Solidarity
Committee will be planning educational events and mobilizations in
defense of the people of Mexico's fight against fraud, for justice,
democracy, and freedom.

Join us!
