WE DON'T FORGET, WE RESIST - Sta. Lucía del Camino, Oaxaca, December 23rd, 2004
BROTHERS AND SISTERS - In Oaxaca, December 22nd is turning into a day of
protests against repression and impunity, as a date that the police
forces use to repress all those that search for a better world.
Thus yesterday we, as we announced cultural activities to not forget the
massacre of our sisters and brothers of Acteal, we were evicted from the
peaceful sit-in that we were maintaining in the central plaza of Oaxaca.
In spite of the violent eviction, we went out in the afternoon to fulfill our
promise to do the cultural acts because to struggle peacefully so that our
autonomy might be respected, the murderous paramilitaries might be
arrested and there might be a solution to our community demands is
something that we will not fail to do.

In spite of the blows all over our bodies and the theft of our belongings by
the special forces of the state police, AFI and tourist police, yesterday
starting at 6pm a little more than 100 members of CIPO, the Chakas
collective, Ratas collective and MPR jointly developed a demonstration
on the streets of November 20th, to the León Arborway.

Since we left, 2 large anti-riot vehicles and 3 white vans monitoring with
radio and using turrets and sirens intimidated us. They numbered more
than 200 heavily armed, of the UPOE (special forces) that surrounded
the march at the height of the chocolate shop "el mayordomo" and left us
in no time. The whole operation was directed by José Manuel Vera
Salinas and the state director of the National Institute of Migration,
Daniel Camarena Flores.

We marched hand in hand and screaming slogans against repression:
"murderous government, you kill peasants" "December 22nd is not
forgotten" "Chiapas is not a base, army out" "Oaxaca is not a base, army
out" "Acteal is not forgotten" "neither with tanks nor shrapnel will the
the CIPO be silenced" "Free the political prisoners" "We are not all here,
the prisoners are missing"

We set up in the atrium of the Oaxaca Cathedral, with a newspaper
mural and banners explaining the repression against the indigenous
folks. We joined hands and made a circle to which tens of tourists
gathered to inform themselves of what was happening. The speakers
remembered the repression in Acteal and what happened in Oaxaca by
similar facts like the case of Agua Fría and the recent aggressions
toward the NOTICIAS NEWSPAPER and to the CIPO-RFM.

When Cesar Chávez arrived with the projection equipment, Vera
Salinas directly threatened Cesar Chávez, Simon Yllescas Manzano,
Gabriela Pérez Gómez, Félix Machuca, among others and ordered
the arrest of Cesar Chávez, but the active and immediate participation
of our comrades, successfully impeded his arbitrary imprisonment and
they were able to bring him to a safe place. Without a doubt, the taxi in
which he traveled was pulled over and brought by the police to an
unknown location. Between the threats that the police officer spoke:
"they are going to shoot your fucking mother" "they will not escape
passing some time in the joint" and he pointed them out with his finger
so that the plain-clothes agents would film them.

But the police also attacked foreigners by the hands of the National
Institute of Immigration, given that Daniel Camarena Flores, by orders of
the governor took away three foreigners, threatening to deport them,
among themm Mitchell Cowen Verter, from the USA, because he told
them that no foreigner should see the activities that the CIPO carries out,
although the only thing the foreigners did, like many others, was to see
the banners, reed the mural, ask what happend and receive answers. The
idea is to intimidate all foreigners who are interested to know what is
going on in Oaxaca.

The event ended at 9pm, at which time we retired peacefully to the place,
but the police followed us with patrols and motorcycles until Lázaro
Cárdenas square, to film those who participated in and coordinated the

We will continue to struggle for the freedom of Dolores Villalobos
Cuamatzi, Margarita García García, José y Habacuc Cruz Cruz.
And we take responsibility for the damages that any member of the
CIPO-RFM might suffer and Cesar Chávez in particular.

KINDLY For the reconstitution and free association of our peoples For
