Dan gave a brief synopsis of the situation in Oaxaca Mexico, as well as some commentary on the conditions leading up to the present invasion by Federal troops. At least three have died, including an American reporter working with Indymedia New York.|
Soon after this interview, Chris Ferlazo, also, I believe, with PCASC, described the lockdown earlier in the afternoon which led to the two arrests. Chris has recently been down to Oaxaca, and spoke briefly from his perspective about the events as they are unfolding in that area.
This is only a scant example of the words spoken in strong support of those who reside in that beseiged city, todos somos Oaxaca. The rally featured a few scheduled speakers, followed by an open mike. All conveyed their sympathy and solidarity for the people of Oaxaca.
Thanks to all who attended and to those who have taken the time to report their experience to Portland Indymedia.
