(en) Mexico, Red Alert in Oaxaca*

Date Sat, 12 Aug 2006 08:24:12 +0300


On 6th of August governor of Oaxaca Ulises Ruiz and the president of
Mexico Vincente Fox made a new ultraright alliance, which activated the
federal preventive police (PFP), known for its cruelty. The PFP is and
will be used against peaceful protestors. Ulises also allied himself
with archbishop Botello, which accused the protest of being violent and
stated that a peace is worth much more than any fight for justice«.
The same day Catarino Torres Peredo was violently arrested on the false
accusations. The police was wearing civilian clothes. Catarino is member
of APPO and a member of CODECI from Tuxtepec.
Because of the massive threat from the police APPO declared RED ALERT IN OAXACA!

Represive state institutions are trying to stop the movement by any
means necessary. APPO intercepted the information that police would even
place bombs in banks in order to harm the movement. On August 6th
another shocking thing happened, people paid by the governor, took over
several buses, claiming to be members of APPO. Police, as usual, in
civilian clothes attacked protestors with teargas and firearms in front
of one of the public buildings.

APPO IS SENDING A CLEAR MESSAGE TO ULISES AND HIS ALLIES:

Oaxacan men, women, children, young and old, we are tired of life in
misery in which we are forced by governmental employes. Most of the
people of Oaxaca are of Indian origin and we have a lot of experience
in resistance and in struggle.

WE WILL RESIST! WE WILL NEVER LET FASCISM WIN!

And we are answering to archbishop with the words od Mahatma Gandhi:

THE WORST VIOLENCE IS POVERTY!

TO INDIGENOUS PEOPLES
TO INTERNATIONAL AND NATIONAL SOCIAL MOVEMENTS
TO HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS
TO THE PEOPLE
Oaxaca de Juarez, Monday 7th of august 2006, 5:47 PM
Indian Organizations for Human Rights in Oaxaca (OIDHO)- member of the
provisional collective directorship of the Popular Assembly of the
People of Oaxaca (APPO), sends the following urgent communique:
In these moments, - via radio broadcasts from the brave Oaxacan women
who peacefully occupied the Channel 9 TV station last tuesday - APPO
calls for a RED ALERT in order to reinforce all current blocking of
local, state and federal government buildings and Channel 9 amidst the
threat of intense police activity in the states capitol.
Let us not forget that as of yesterday we have confirmed a dangerous
complicity between right-wing extremists of both the national and state
governments evidenced by President Fox's immediate grant of a request,
petitioned by (ex) governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz, to send the Federal
Prevention Police (PFP) - a nefarious militarized police created for the
authoritarian neoliberal state. The acute aversion to the state police
can be attributed, amongst other reasons, to the repression experienced
at the hands of fellow country-persons. More than one thousand PFP
actives, along with some special state and municipal units with similar
repressive practices, and groups of vandals financed by the
(ex)government, have been contracted to enforce the fascist plans of
this moribund regime.
New information has come to light that reveals other tactics in this
dirty war. The repressive front has plans to plant bombs in banks in
order to frame the popular movement and, thus, use the accusations to
justify massive repression. And yesterday, thieves hired by the
(ex)state government highjacked and burned buses having falsely
identified themselves as APPO. Fortunately, the movement was able to
apprehend them and reveal the nature of the provocation. Today, units of
the police dressed in civilian clothing tried to dislodge one of the
blockades in front of an occupied public building with tear gas and
gunfire. The attempt to disperse the blockade was a failure, and there
were no wounded reported.
Previously described in an internal communique within the state regime
which the APPO acquired, the dirty war has tactics to prevent the
impeachment of the nefarious governor and his mafia. The campaign
includes a move orchestrated on the high pulpits of ecclesiastic power.
Yesterday and today, the Archbishop Botello of Oaxaca made repeated
calls for "Peace" criticizing the supposed "violence" of the popular
movement. The Archbishop went on to say that "peace was worth more than
any movement for justice" to the various outlets of mass disinformation.
The compañero Catarino Torres - a representative for the
Indigenous-Farmworker Organization (CODECI) from the Tuxtepec region and
member of the APPO - was detained yesterday under false federal
accusations.
These accounts depict the tense situation that we live in the State of
Oaxaca set in the context of ultra right-wing state and national
government alliances that believe the popular movement DOES NOT EXIST.
The compañeras of the radio have just said that Oaxaca is the
birthright of humanity; and they hope that this perspective would not
be limited to the beautiful buildings, but would include all the human
beings fighting for a just and free life on these lands.
From the permanent sit-in in the center of this Capital, from the
different blockades of public buildings and roads, from l@s
<mailto:l@soaxaqueñ@s' <mailto:oaxaqueñ@s'Channel 9, from the
university and free radios, and from the popular organizations and the
distant communities in the different regions of the state that have
integrated into this peaceful and just fight with the APPO, we are
sending one sole communique to Ulises Ruiz and his regime, including any
of his alliances, being state or national:
The men and women of Oaxaca, the children, the youth, the elderly, we
are all tired of being walked over, tired of living in misery due to the
greed of corrupted officials and business-people. The State of Oaxaca in
its majority is indigenous and has a long history of resistance and
struggle.
We will resist. We are not going to retreat. The State of Oaxaca will
not permit fascism. THEY WILL NOT PASS.
And to the Archbishop we speak with the words of Mahatma Gandhi:
"Poverty is the worst of all violence."
We are putting out a red alert to everyone warning them not be fooled by
the dirty campaign perpetuated by the mass system of disinformation and
to join in solidarity with the popular oaxacan movement represented in
the APPO.
