Oaxaca

October 29, 2006

 Oaxaca resists!

Bradley Ronald Will, a young cameraman and journalist from Indymedia, was killed yesterday by paramilitaries at the service of Oxaca’s governor Ulises Ruíz, who enjoys the steady support of president Vicente Fox. Another political crime for which both Ruíz and Fox should pay.

Fox has vowed to “resolve” the popular movement in Oaxaca led by the Asamblea Popular de los Pueblos de Oaxaca in order to leave a clean slate for the inauguration of the spurious president elect Felipe Calderón. And these provocations and crimes may be the preparation for a final coup to be delivered by the infamous Federal Preventive Police (PFP), whose members are arriving in mass in Oaxaca.

The PFP is the repressive corps that Vicente Fox and Carlos Abascal (the interior minister) launched against the miners and steeler workers in Sicartsa, Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán (with the consent, if not active cooperation of PRD’s Michoacán governor, Lázaro Cárdenas Batel) and against the popular uprising in San Salvador Atenco.

The images linked below were the last captured by Bradley R. Will’s camera: http://video.indymedia.org/download/%5BIndymedia%5D_(2006-10-29)_Infamia-contra-Bradley_ataqueArmado-en-SantaLucia-del-Camino__Oaxaca–27oct06.mp4
