Government Launches New Aggression Against the Popular Assembly Movement

Commentary from Oaxaca

November 27, 2006

On Monday, November 27 “Citizen” Radio, operated allegedly without a license by the PRI in support of Governor Ulises Ruiz, called on PRI supporters to invade and burn the offices of EDUCA, one of the signatory non-governmental organizations which have allied with the Popular Assembly of the Peoples’ of Oaxaca (APPO). The call to destroy the offices also named the current director of EDUCA, Marcos Leyva, as an APPO activist. EDUCA is accused by Citizen Radio of manufacturing Molotov cocktails, and otherwise creating illegal and explosive artifacts. EDUCA is a civil organization based in Oaxaca City which works in various local communities in three regions of the state: the Central Valley, the Southern Sierra and the (Pacific) Coast. It seeks to promote local development and to strengthen local organizational initiatives in Oaxacan communities, while educating people about their civil and legal rights.

Ciudadana Radio is the same broadcast station which on November 25 called for people to drop acid or boiling water on the APPO marchers.

Also this morning, the Policia Federal Preventiva are reported to have detained 150 people, who have been shipped out of the state of Oaxaca, to the state of Nayarit. According to El Universal of November 27, 107 men and 34 women -141 persons detained for “violent acts” the past weekend in Oaxaca – were transported to the federal prison of San José del Rincón, in Nayarit.
