More information on Oaxaca solidarity at

Mal de Ojo TV surfaced in Oaxaca City after June 14, 2006 as a coalition of independent, indigenous and community media workers, including Indymedia Oaxaca and Ojo de Agua Comunicación, dedicated to covering the rising social movement and its repression in Oaxaca. The organization has been targeted by the Oaxacan police. Mal de Ojo TV has been a vital source of coverage for most of the major events involving police repression in the city, but they have also been covering the building of a popular movement, documenting assemblies, peaceful marches, press conferences and proclamations.
