Parent Article: Oaxaca Is Not Alone! Day of Action & March in Boston Tomorrow!
Hidden with code "Other"
Beware the Avalanche
19 Nov 2006
Many of the indy media reports ive read admit to sever local dissatisfaction with the appo, their aims and tactics. Additionally Indy media reports admit that they are armed with and use guns, fire bombs and homemade rocket launchers and that they steal independently owned busses and target local shop keeps and residents for a seige of Oaxaca. What ive read and scene points to a seeming hypocrisy in that the appo actually pays and arms its people to the detriment of the local populace.

Isnt that clearly contrary to the descriptions of them here as being popular and nonviolent?

I have not scene any cohesive anti imperialist analysis for the teachers strike which I understand is a local ritual and has since been declared over. Have you?

There is a long history of local labor struggles being taken over by external interests.

The over the top US Indy media based overthrow rhetoric and overtly contradictory portrayals doesn’t explain why activists should drop any anti-imperialist work to engage in destabilizing regime change in a foreign country that reportedly has the potential for inciting civil war.

Is there any moral surplus any where in US and western societies which have been completely corrupted by imperialism and Zionism and continue to fail to mount any real resistance to them?
