3. Probably not. The major media is owned by the same people who
hired the murders!

8. AP is reporting that "citizens" are tired of "leftists" but
Indy Media reporting that gov snipers in civilians clothes are firing on people.

4. The NarcoNews article is very moving. Photo of Brad Will. And photos
of his assassins in the act--or that's what the photos appear to be, and are so identified at this site! Amazing photos! They are attributed to "El Universal." But I don't know who is behind the camera. One assassin is pointing his gun right at the camera. And presumably the cameraman/woman was in mortal danger at that moment. It's unclear if Brad took these photos in his last moments, if some other news organization (El Universal?) got hold of his footage, or if another news organiztion was taking the pix when it happened. Maddeningly unclear. I hope NarcoNews will clarify. If these photos are what they seem to be, the assassins are right there, easy to identify--thus possibly to find out who hired them.

Others have been assassinated, kidnapped, raped, tortured, in the governor's paramilitary operations, crimes that the Fox/Calderon federal government is winking at. The Oaxacans want the governor removed. This is why. This and a stolen state election. But of course Calderon is also the beneficiary of a stolen election, so what does he care? Illegitimate power is the mode of the corporatists, there as here.

5. Oh no!
:cry:

Solidaridad, Brad Will.
Thank you and rest in peace.
Your death was not in vain.
