EMERGENCY DELEGATION TO OAXACA, MEXICO: UNDERSTANDING HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES IN LIGHT OF CURRENT EVENTS
WHEN: December 16 — December 22, 2006
WHERE: Oaxaca, Mexico
CONTACT: Jacob Muller, Oaxaca Solidarity Network,
Is it November already? Apologies for the lag getting this month's newsletter out, but as many of our readers are aware, things have been increasingly tense in the past month throughout Mexico. Both CASA collectives have been actively involved in the developing events in Oaxaca, the Otra Campaña's caravan got back underway after being stationed in Atenco since this May, and there has been increased repression against some EZLN support bases located on lands recuperated in the late 1990's.

PFP helicopters circle the city. The radio urges people to go outside with mirrors to blind the helicopters. We watch from our roof as, all around our house, old women and small children hold up their mirrors as the helicopters fly overhead. The valley below us is filled with the constant glitter of bright light from citizens doing the same.
