Radio Autonomía Interview with Foxy 6 Defense Team (LA)
On November 14, 2012, six individuals were beaten and arrested across the street from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, where the ex-president of Mexico, Vicente Fox, was speaking.
A few weeks ago, we met up in Oakland with some members of the Foxy 6 Defense Team from Los Angeles to hear about what happened that day and to learn about the case.
Of those protesting for an end to violence against indigenous Zapatista communities, six demonstrators were arrested. Four of those are facing multiple felony charges, while two have misdemeanor charges. The "Foxy 6" are all currently fighting the unjust charges together, united in continuing their struggle for justice wherever it takes them. One of those arrested was held in jail for two months on $100,000 bail before being bailed out, and money is currently being raised to meet the continuing payments for his bail, as well as for the costs of legal representation.
