People have been taken off the street by unmarked cars, taxis, and even a white van marked 'Press,' according to Radio Universidad, which remains 'on the air' although their signal is being pirated across most of Oaxaca City by someone broadcasting THE SAME SONG over and over (and over and over) for almost a week now. Someone fired shots at the barricade outside of the University again yesterday, but hit no one. The PFP has raided homes, arrested people at barricades, and targeted organizers, teachers, and students. Those who have been release (see photo below) have told of torture and interrogation. Stay informed and make your voice heard at the closest Mexican consulate or embassy.
§List of those already freed
by danielsan
Posters are showing up all over town with the faces of lost sons and daughter, friends, parents... COFEDAPPO is trying to keep an accurate and current count of those who have been taken, and those who have been freed. As APPO meets to plan its next moves (today, tomorrow, and Saturday), the men and women whose whereabouts are unknown must not have their voices silenced through absence.
The next few pictures already got posted, but they are more than relevant here.
