DEMAND JUSTICE FOR OAXACA!

To date, at least 16 people have been killed by the local and federal government in Oaxaca, México. Among them, Indymedia NY documentary filmmaker Brad Wills, Oaxacan schoolteacher Emilio Alfonso Fabián, and two other journalists who were shot and killed on October 27th by paramilitaries tied to the local police.
Dozens more have been injured by government sponsored gunfire.

Oaxaca is the site of a massive popular protest, initiated by a teachers strike in May, demanding the resignation of the repressive governor Ulises Ruíz. In the last 5 months, the government has responded with violent repression, killing a number of teachers and protesters. Very recently, the violence has escalated tremendously and it is reported that truckloads of armed paramilitary forces, working on the part of the government, are invading the city of Oaxaca, as well as thousands of federal police forces being sent in by President Fox. In the past six months, Mexico has been the site of extreme violence against the people and the media. The mainstream media in the US and Mexico has avoided and distorted coverage of the situation.
