PDX OAXACAN SOLIDARITY ACTIONS MONDAY N20

November 20 is Revolution Day in Mexico. The Zapatistas have called for a General Strike in Mexico with solidarity with the popular movement in Oaxaca, and have called for actions internationally.
SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA!

The people of Oaxaca are engaged in a courageous struggle to build a
popular democratic government that values citizens over corrupt political
and economic interests. They are taking back their government from a
discredited governor and those who use violence to keep him in power. The
people of Oaxaca now face a repressive occupation by Federal military
police forces and terrorist acts of disappearances.
