-----please forward widely------ Urgent: Oaxaca on Red Alert- Solidarity Meeting 7pm THIS SUNDAY, 10/29, at the Jack Pine Community Center It appears that the imminent repression the APPO has been warning of has begun in Oaxaca. At least 5 people have been killed in the past day and a half, including a U.S.-born journalist, and President Fox has mobilized the Federal Police to arrive in Oaxaca today. The people of Oaxaca are on red alert, and asking for shows of solidarity all over the world. Please join us in planning solidarity actions in the Twin Cities. When: 7pm THIS SUNDAY, 10/29 Where: Jack Pine Community Center, 2815 E. Lake St., Mpls A little background: Over the past half a year, the people of Oaxaca have been engaged in a popular rebellion. Last May, Oaxacan teachers staged a walkout to demand higher pay and better working conditions, which was meant with severe government repression. In response, the teachers began an occupation of the city, citing removal of the governor, Ulises Ruiz , as a necessary condition of their return to work. At least 16 protestors have been killed since then, with many more injured.
