"The indigenous communities
who have been holding a vigil
outside the governor's palace in
Oaxaca since April 20 and who have
begun to increase their protest since
mid-July, peacefully occupied the
Plaza de la Danza. About one hour
later we were surrounded by the
State police together with special
forces, and so, at approximately
9pm, they initiated the evacuation.
Nevertheless, women, children and
other people who were there joined
hands and we made circles, thereby
peacefully resisting the first attempt
to clear us away using electric ba-
tons, tear gas and shock grenades.
"The evacuation was directed
by Lt. José M. Vera Salinas, Secre-
tary of Civil Protection and Cpt.
Moreno Rivas, Director of Public Se-
curity in the state.
"It should be mentioned both
officials have acted previously as
bodyguards to José Murat and Cpt.
Moreno Rivas was famously injured
in the questionable attack on Gov-
ernor Murat.
"We have informed them that
we have come looking for Justice
and we will not leave without an
answer, that we are firm in our deci-
sion not to leave until Governor José
Murat decides to engage in dialogue
with us and decides to arrest To
s t o p Cesar Toimil and Jacobo
Chávez, heads of the paramilitary
o r g a n i z a t i o n "Consejo Regional
Obrero Campesino y Urbano de
Tuxtepec" [Regional Council of Ag-
r i c u l t u r a l and Town Workers of
Tuxtepec - CROCUT], and take care
o f agrarian conflicts, make a
committment not to continue de-
stroying the forest, give municipal
participation to the agencies and
punish all those that have hurt us.
"This repression clearly shows
how the government is protecting its
paramilitaries and has no interest in
looking after the communities.
"Please do not leave us alone.
We need you to ask for the inter-
vention of the CNDH, international
organizations, academic organiza-
tions, the progressive elements of
the church, the mass mesia, and all
those who can help spread news of
this repression and stop the injus-
tice against us.

Oaxaca "Ricardo Flores Magon"
