Mexico Solidarity Network presents: National Speaking Tour on Mexico's Social Movements
April 10th UCSC Baobab Lounge, Merrill College 6pm

The current political situation in Mexico is of great social discontent and unrest, as well as tremendous state repression. From the Acteal masacre, to the Guadalajara repression, to the cases of Lazaro Cardenas, Atenco, and Oaxaca, international human rights organizations have denounced that in Mexico there is a grave problem of human rights violations and impunity. In 2006 only, the Atenco people and zapatista supporters were detained, killed, raped and tortured by local, state and federal police; the Oaxaca teachers, general population and independent journalists were repressed,detained, tortured and the Mexican social and political situation and participate to prevent future human rights abuses and demand democracy, peace and justice with dignity for all mexican social movements from the left and from below.

The MEXICO SOLIDARITY NETWORK will be featuring a panel composed of a journalist/activist, an academic-activist and a well-known academic and political analyst, who will be speaking about the current Mexican political climate and contemporary social struggles for self-determination.
