According to reports from New York City Independent Media Center and La Jornada, Will, 36, was shot at the Santa Lucia Barricade from a distance of 30-40 meters in the pit of the stomach by plainclothes paramilitaries and died while enroute to the Red Cross.

Arrests Fail to Deter Protest-Vigil for Oaxaca at Mexican Consulate

Chicago, 04.11.2006 00:08

Seventy-five people gathered in front of Chicago's Mexican Consulate on Oct 31 to protest the latest state repression and violence being carried out against the people of 0axaca. The protest was followed by a memorial sidewalk vigil for those murdered by police and pro-government paramilitaries -including New York City IMC journalist Brad Will. The actions were collaboratively organized by Chicago Otra, Chicago Indymedia, and Brad's many grieving friends in the Chicago area.

Chicago cops arrested two people at the onset of the 3:00 PM action. Chicago IMC journalist Christine Geovanis was arrested after attempting to tape a photo of Brad Will to the exterior front wall of the consulate. A second activist was arrested after objecting to her arrest. Both were charged with disorderly conduct and spent 11 hours in lock-up.

Protesters refused to back off after the arrests, and Chicago Otra led a delegation (and a Indymedia videographer) into the consulate to demand the removal of occupying federal police from Oaxaca and justice for those killed by police and PRI gunmen loyal to the corrupt state government of Ulises Ruiz. Not surprisingly, consular officials remained noncommittal. Chicago Otra immediately announced a series of actions and events in the coming days to raise local public awareness about the dramatic escalation of government-sponsored attacks against striking teachers and APPO — the embattled grassroots popular movement of Oaxaca - Read More | Photos: [ 1 ] Video: Chicago Stands with Oaxaca - Labor Beat | Photos and Story of Chicago's Demonstration at Mexican Consulate

Protesters for Oaxaca Gather in Boston: Mexican Consul Confronted at a Day of the Dead Celebration at Harvard

Boston, 03.11.2006 18:08

Boston, Mass. – About 150 protesters from several cities in Massachusetts (Boston, Worcester, Bedford) and Providence, Rhode Island, joined forces to protest in front of the Mexican consulate yesterday to raise awareness and demand justice for the people’s resistance in Oaxaca. They did so as an international red alert was raised from Oaxaca announcing that Radio Universidad was being attacked by federal forces injuring 15 men and 9 women between the ages of 19 and 78 years old; at least one person has been reported to be in grave condition. The Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO), a democratically elected body with representatives from worker, teacher, student, and women groups, are asking for the immediate resignation of Governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz, who is accused of having created a repressive and corrupt state in Oaxaca.

Oaxaca: Polizei vorerst aus der Stadt vertrieben

Switzerland, 03.11.2006 18:07

Nach der Ermordung mehrerer Aktivisten aus den Basisorganisationen (darunter auch der Indymedia Journalist Brad Will aus New York) durch Polizisten und regierungsnahe Personen [en], begann die mexikanische Bundespolizei und paramilitärische Einheiten mit Angriffen auf die südmexikanische Stadt Oaxaca. Nach dem Einmarsch (1|2|3 1) mehrer tausend Polizisten und Soldaten, unterstützt durch mehrere gepanzerte Wasserwerfer, Helikoptern und anderen schweren Geräten, begann diese mit der Räumung der seit Frühling bestehenden Barrikaden. Im laufe der Auseinandersetzungen wurden weitere Tote, wie auch viele Verletzte gemeldet.
Die Menschen in Oaxaca leisten jedoch zunehmend mehr und mehr Widerstand ( 1|2 1 | 2 | 3 | 4| 5 ) und so erlitt die PFP am Donnerstag, nach heftigen Kämpfen rund die Universität ( Audio Auschnitte) eine erste Niederlage und sie musste sich aus der Stadt zurück ziehen.

Eine wichtige Informationsquelle für die Aktivistinnen vor Ort und Solidaritäts und Medienaktivistinnen in aller Welt ist Radio APPO ( Livestream), welches im Kanal #radioappo auf dem Indymedia IRC-Server fast Live in Englisch übersetzt wird. Ein Archiv der vergangenen Streams findet sich hier.
Ebenfalls sind sehr viele alternative und unabhängige Medien daran beteiligt die Aktionen zu dokumentieren und ein anderes Bild als das der bürgerlichen Presse zu zeichnen. (Siehe Links unten.)

Weltweit haben bereits verschiedene Solidaritäts- und Gedenkaktionen stattgefunden. So auch vergangenen Montag in Zürichund Samstags in Berlin. Die Zapatisten rufen derweil zu einem Generalstreik und weiteren Protesten auf.

Breaking: The APPO Wins an Important Battle Against the PFP

Portland, 03.11.2006 00:39

After a six-hour siege on the Benito Juarez Autonomous University, which is the home Radio Universidad, voice of the APPO, the Federal Preventative Police (PFP) was forced to retreat just moments ago.

As helicopters, tanks, and scores of armed federal police approached the University campus, "la doctora," the now famous host of radio APPO, urged the citizens of Oaxaca to rush to the scene to aid in the defense of the campus and particularly, of the radio station.

Scores of neighbors and students reportedly surround the PFP troops. Simultaneously, APPO supporters in Mexico City marched from the hunger strikers' encampment near the Senate to the offices of the PFP to demand a retreat from the campus.

A World Away

As I write this, a woman screams across the crackling wires. A faceless cry of anguish from a world away. I stare out through the grey, impassive, Oregon rain, squinting through the fog, trying to see her, trying to imagine what it's like down there. Trying mutely to offer solidarity. Reaching out across the ether to someone I have never seen, but whose voice I recognize as a comrade. I'm listening to the voice of Oaxaca.

Killed for the Truth, Paid for the Lies, and Impunity for the Murderers

NYC, 02.11.2006 20:09

Here are two small but important details about Brad’s death:

He was wearing an Indymedia t-shirt when he was shot. One bullet must have gone right through the (((i)). Maybe that shouldn’t matter to me but it does. I have that t-shirt, as do many people I love.

Second, Brad lived for nearly an hour after he was shot. The initial photos made it seem like he died on the spot. Other reports suggest he died minutes later on the way to a hospital. In fact, protesters carried his body for a long distance, drove a car until it ran out of gas, unsuccessfully tried to wave down a couple of trucks – it started to rain – and then, about five blocks from the Red Cross station, he died. I don’t know if this should matter either, but it does.



[Oaxaca] Suivi en temps réel

Liege, 02.11.2006 20:08

Cinq mois après le début de l'impressionnant mouvement social à Oaxaca, les pouvoirs fédéraux ont décidé d'envoyer entre 3.000 et 4.000 militaires et policiers pour "ramener l'ordre" Vendredi, début de l'intervention armée à Oaxaca, 4 personnes ont été assassinées et de nombreuses autres bléssées et arrêtées. Malgré la résistance pacifique des habitants d'Oaxaca et des sympathisants venus de partout, les 3 jours suivants ont vu la "police fédérale préventive" (PFP) et les paramilitaires reprendre peu à peu le contrôle du centre-ville. A nouveau, on a compté de nombreux bléssés et arrêtés. Plusieurs quartiers restent aux mains des manifestant-e-s, notamment celui de l'université à partir duquel émet la radio de l'Assemblée Populaire des Peuples d'Oaxaca (APPO), véritable voix de ce mouvement des sans-voix.
