email me at mollie11 (at) riseup.net or post on indymedia with how people are responding to the zapatista call for soidarity actions on dec 22nd? for those who havent seen it-- here's the call to action:

DECEMBER 2, 2006

TO THE PEOPLE OF MEXICO:
TO THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD:

SISTERS AND BROTHERS:

THE ATTACK THAT OUR BRETHREN, THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA, SUFFERED AND ARE SUFFERING, CANNOT BE IGNORED BY THOSE WHO STRUGGLE FOR LIBERTY, JUSTICE AND DEMOCRACY IN EVERY CORNER OF THE PLANET.

FOR THIS REASON, THE EZLN CALLS EVERY HONEST PERSON, IN MEXICO AND AROUND THE WORLD, TO BEGIN, FROM THIS MOMENT, CONTINUOUS ACTIONS IN SOLIDARITY AND SUPPORT OF THE OAXACAN PEOPLE, WITH THE FOLLOWING DEMANDS:

FOR THE LIVE RETURN OF THOSE WHO HAVE DISAPPEARED, FOR THE RELEASE OF PRISONERS, FOR THE WITHDRAWAL OF ULISES RUIZ AND FEDERAL FORCES FROM OAXACA, FOR THE PUNISHMENT OF THOSE GUILTY OF TORTURE, RAPE AND MURDER. IN BRIEF: FOR FREEDOM, DEMOCRACY AND JUSTICE FOR THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA.

WE CALL FOR THIS INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO SAY, IN ALL WAYS AND IN ALL PLACES WHERE IT IS POSSIBLE, WHAT HAS HAPPENED AND IS HAPPENING IN OAXACA, EACH PERSON IN THEIR OWN MANNER, TIME AND SPACE.

WE CALL FOR THESE ACTIONS TO CULMINATE IN A GLOBAL MOBILIZATION FOR OAXACA ON DECEMBER 22, 2006.

THE OAXACAN PEOPLE ARE NOT ALONE. WE MUST PROCLAIM THIS AND SHOW THAT IT IS TRUE, BOTH TO THEM AND TO EVERYONE.

Democracy!
Liberty!
Justice!

By the Clandestine Revolutionary Indigenous Committee-General Command of the Zapatista Army for National Liberation.
Mexico.

call a meeting or issue a local call to action
13 Dec 2006
I would suggest calling a city wide meeting to discuss plans for action on the 22nd.

I realize that it's short notice but a meeting of all interested individuals and/or organizations could build a powerful solidarity action.

If people feel that it's too hard to organize a planning meeting before the 22nd, then the folks who have been organizing around this issue should simply issue a call to action so that people like me can spread it around.

The sooner we have a plan the better.

PS any action on Dec 22 should have a very heavy informational component so that people passing by can learn about the situation in Oaxaca. The organizers of the last planton got out thousands of leaflets. We need to do that again.
