Maybe even broader connections to concerns and actions "outside" the "hub", those that can be interdependent like that of many locales with global outlook maybe in addition to more independent media connectiveness it could lead to more IMC support, monetary, volunteer, donations, "outreach", etc.

CIPO-RFM en Espanol
09 Jul 2005
“Nuestra lucha no es por el poder. Por cambiar un poder por otro. Es por la política del bien común, de la vida comunitaria, de la justicia. Es política contra la impunidad, contra las injusticias, contra la muerte.”
-El Consejo Indígena Popular de Oaxaca- Ricardo Flores Magón (CIPO-RFM)

El gobierno mexicano de Vicente Fox ha negado el reconocimiento constitucional a los pueblos indígenas y en cambio ha aumentado el número de militares y paramilitares en las comunidades de Chiapas, Guerrero y Oaxaca principalmente. Además, a pocos meses de instaurado un nuevo gobierno en Oaxaca situado al sudoeste del país, y encabezado por Ulises Ruiz Ortiz se ha visto un deterioro en la situación social y política en particular en los derechos políticos de los pueblos indígenas. Situación que se ha visto reflejada en crímenes políticos, enfrentamientos comunitarios, detenciones injustas y criminalización de la lucha social.

Stop the repression of the CIPO-RFM
09 Jul 2005
“Our struggle is not for power. To change one power for another. But for the policy of communal good, of community life, of justice. It is the policy against impunity, against injustices, against death.”

The Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca-Ricardo Flores Magón (CIPO-RFM)

The Mexican government of Vicente Fox has rejected the constitutional recognition of Indigenous peoples, yet on the other hand; has increased the number of soldiers and paramilitaries in the communities of Chiapas, Guerrero and principally in Oaxaca. Only a few months after the appointment of the new government of Ulises Ruiz Ortiz in the south western state of Oaxaca, there has been deterioration in the social and political situation and in particular regarding the political rights of Indigenous peoples. Evidence of this situation are the political crimes, community confrontations, unjust detentions, and the criminalization of social struggles. One of the Indigenous organizations suffering the most repression in all of Mexico and particularly in Oaxaca is the Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca- Ricardo Flores Magón (CIPO-RFM). Even though they are against the use of arms, the history of the CIPO-RFM has been marked by persecution and repression. Since the creation of this organization of communities in 1997, there have been: 517 people detained/tortured; 103 raids by the military, police and paramilitaries in the communities of the organization, 81 arrest warrants for crimes they did not commit; 229 criminal, civil, and mercantile trials; 27 assassinations and 263 serious injuries. At the moment, one of the more known members, Raúl Gatica, lives practically clandestine due to attempts against his life he has suffered. Also an undetermined number of the inhabitants of Lagunilla, Morelos Yosonotu, San Isidro Aloapam and Santa Maria de Yaviche live displaced from their communities for fear of being murdered or jailed, their only crime being to organize themselves in the defense of their rights as peoples. In this moment, 16 members of the CIPO-RFM still remain imprisoned.
