As we write this, the people of Oaxaca are under attack by Mexico's federal police, army, and paramilitary forces. This is a decisive moment for movements of resistance everywhere.
More than a dozen Oaxaqueños, and now our friend and compañero Brad Will from NYC Indymedia, have been murdered in the streets of Oaxaca. People across the hemisphere are saying ¡ya basta!
On Monday, demonstrations were held in over 14 cities across the country. Mexican consulates were shut down in New York, North Carolina, Indiana, Spain and Brazil. Graffiti about Oaxaca was found from Boston to Sacramento to Santiago.
To all people in New England: Join us on Thursday, El Dia de los Muertes (Day of the Dead), for a massive show of solidarity at Boston's Mexican Consulate.
Join us to protest the killings, remember the fallen, and demand that the Mexican government immediately cease and desist in its invasion and terror against Oaxaca.
Bring noisemakers, banners, and signs expressing solidarity with the people of Oaxaca.
Spread the word to friends, comrades, neighbors, coworkers, classmates, everyone you know.
Transportation to the Consulate:
From Boston: Green Line T to Arlington Stop
