Wednesday, February 23 The CGH Speaks!, 7PM @ ESPERANZA peace 
and justice center 922 San Pedro, right next to SAC
San Antonio, Texas

This Wednesday we are hosting a plática by one of the
members of the CGH (Consejo General de Huelga), the
general council of the UNAM strike.  Herendira Tellez
has come a long way to talk to us and I hope all of
y'all will make it a point be at the Esperanza Center
to welcome her, and to pass on this info to all
interested.  The Mexican government has refused to let
all the students out of jail (almost 1000 were
arrested just the other week) and many, in and out of
jail, still face charges as far fetched as terrorism
and sedition.  We are also really excited about this
event because it will be the inauguration the new
internet cell of the Colectivo, who plans on
webcasting the talk in almost real time world wide!!! 
More info on this aspect later!  Can't wait to see you

Oh, and just in case you cats got the feeling that
everything is dying down in Mexico since the
government benevolently released some of the students,
I thought I'd send you an update (this is from the
FZLN daily updates).  If you scroll down to read it,
please excuse my poor translation abilities, I am
including the Spanish also…

En amistad y resistencia,

Esperanza Garza

Students in the state of Mexico went out into the
streets in response to the call of the CGH.  In
Morelos, students, academicians and workers of the SME
gathered in the main square of Cuernavaca.  In the
University of San Nicolas Hildalgo of Michoacan
academic activities were stopped for twelve hours. 
University departments of five states in Mexico
gathered for the national strike called by the CGH of
the UNAM and demanded freedom for the student strikers
in jail and "for free higher education."

While in Guerrero, Michoacan, Zacatecas, Morelos and
in the state of Mexico reported protests and a
paralysis of academic activites, in Queretaro y
Nayarit the response was almost nothing.  [translators
note:  Lets not let a report say that San Antonio did
nothing, eh?  embarrass…]
