Oaxaca Resistance Crushed! Radio APPO stops transmitting

Meet The New Boss. Same As The Old Boss

Since Friday, the peaceful (mostly) resistance of the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca
has been violently crushed. What leaders that have not been arrested are now in hiding.

Over 200 have been arrested using blank arrest warrants, most beaten and tortured then shipped to distant
prisons in far flung sections of the country without contact with family or access to attorneys. Human rights organizations have reported rapes of women prisoners. Many others are simply disappeared. This has happened since infiltrated provocateurs and instigators provoked a military response to an otherwise peaceful demonstration last Saturday.

The last barricade, at the intersection Cinco Senores outside the university whose radio station has been the voice of the resistance, fell at 4:30 am yesterday. As the radio station was thus unprotected and an invasion
of Federal forces was immanent, the decision was made to cease operations and turn the station
over to university officials. At this time it is not known the fate of the announcers who have all
had arrest warrants issued for them.

Although the movement has been seriously damaged and been driven underground, it will go on.
Money is being raised through RadioTupa.org for the equipment to launch a pirate station
to replace Radio Universidad. I sure hope DUers can find it in their heart to help.

Tommorrow, december 1, a new mexican president will be installed as the result of an obviously
fraudulent election. Already the mexican congress is torn apart by brawls and fistfights on the floor
as well as an ongoing sleep-in to prevent takeover by rival parties.

A massive demonstration is planned in the central sqaure of Mexico City to protest the inauguration.

What follows is a crude babelfish translation of two news article concerning the situation in Oaxaca
that I found on the website of Lopez Obrador, the legitimate president of Mexico. Al Gore and JohnKerry have company now.
