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.

Call For A United Antiwar Movement: September 24
08 Jul 2005
Call For A United Antiwar Movement - We Must All March Together on September 24!

[For individuals and organizations wishing to sign this statement,
please see below.]

September 24, 2005 has been set as the date for national
demonstrations by the U.S. antiwar movement. We will return to the
streets of the nation's capital, and elsewhere, with a force
determined to challenge the continuation of a brutal and immoral war
and occupation. That the Iraqi War is the central issue in world
politics today is not in dispute. Neither is the fact that there is
a rapidly growing opposition to this war in the United States and
across the globe. The potential for a truly massive turnout that can
open the door wider than ever to our movement's expressing the will
of tens of millions is within reach.

When our own country shows utter contempt and disregard for the massive slaughter of civilians by its military, we have to expect the same thing to happen to us. It’s not right, but it’s predictable.
