(en) Mexico, [Oaxaca],

Date Thu, 26 Oct 2006 11:50:02 +0200

In the National Meeting of Civil Organizations, celebrated in the city of México
from the 20th to the 22th of October in the present year, 81 organizations
participated from 23 states of the republic, and we desire to publish the following:
* The grave political and social conflict in which the state of Oaxaca is
living descends from at least three decades of injuries to the population
of Oaxaca, from whence the violent and reperessive action of the state has
brought together the society in a single demand: the rejection of Ulises
Ruiz Ortiz as governor of the State. This demand has provoked the illegal
arrest of directors, armed attacks on pacific demonstrations, the
installation of armed forces on Oaxaca territory, the torture and
assassination of sympathizers and members of the popular movement,
including the intimidation of personalities such as Maestro Francisco
Toledo, whose house was shot at the morning of Saturday, October 21.
All these have generated a climate of anxiety and psychological terror
in the population during the past four months.

* In Oaxaca, this crisis has been expressed in the exhaustion of a
political model and its institutions, changing with it all the sectors
of society. At the same time this crisis has been shown in the
sistematic violation of human rights, the breakdown of the state of
law, the collapse of the system of political representation and the
grave fragmentation of the social fabric.The ungovernability daily
becomes more evident in the state.

* The Oaxaca society has given a demonstration of its willingness to
dialogue and place confidence in the institutions, by putting in the
hands of the federal government and the Senate of the Republic the
possibility of a solution. Nevertheless, this trust has not been
answered with political decisions at the level of this social movement.

For all the anterior reasons, this National Meeting of Civil
Organizations declares as basic the following:
FIRST: We energeticlly reject the judgment emanating from the
Senate of the Republic regarding the disappearance of powers
(of government) in the state of Oaxaca.
SECOND:- We reject categorically the constant intimidation of
the people on the part of the state and federal police, and the
armed forces, and we demand the immediate departure of these
latter two.
THIRD:- We make an urgent call to society to involve itself in
the demand for a political solution for this conflict and we call
on the communication media to fulfill their responsibility for
truth , imparciality and the difusion of information regarding
the situation in the state, in a responsible way.
FIFTH (sic).- We declare ourselves in support of a peaceful
solution to the crisis and for a new social pact which defines
new relationships between the government and the people, new
institutions and political directors, and that these respond
promptly to the great necessities and pleas, in which the
majority of the popluation lives.It is necessary to install
institutional ways which are effective and prompt to comply
with what is established in article 39 of the Political
Constitution of the United Mexican States.
SIX.- We recognize and we support the Citizen Initiative
for Dialogue for Democracy, Justice and Peace, to which have
joined wide sectors and activists of Oaxaca society, toward
the goal of constructing alternatives for a basic solution
to the Oaxaca crisis.
SEVEN.- We call on International Organizations for Human
Rights to be present in vigilance, observation, documentation
and monitoring of the human rights violations in the State of

México, D.F. October 22, 2006.
