Just released documentaries on Mexico, followed by live feed with journalist on-the-ground in Oaxaca.

1. NO TE RAJES - a 30 minute documentary by Caitlin Manning and the Videoactivista collective about the movement of peaceful civil disobedience that took over the heart of Mexico City for 49 days July trough September of this year. The movement was catalyzed by the fraudulent elections in July 2006. The documentary provides background and context for current wave of social unrest in Mexico.

2.VICTORIA DE LOS SANTOS: a powerful 10 minute documentary by the Mal de Ojo collective on the events in Oaxaca City in early November. Since March of this year, the center of Oaxaca City has been occupied by protestors who are demanding the removal of the governor, Ulises Ruiz. The video was shot on the streets during the attempted takeover of Radio Universidad by the Federal Police, and provides insight into who is involved in the Oaxacan movement and why it is occurring.
