I just returned from an amazing experience in Oaxaca, Mexico. Striking teachers and all other progressive groups have united in the APPO movement. It is one of the most directly democratic organizations of its size. They have withstood months of attack by local and federal police and other groups. I spent two weeks participating in daily marches and all sorts of other events from the Constitutional Congress to a riot.
I will give a talk about what I saw and felt there as well as show some videos.
