[olympiaworkers] Oaxaca Calls to Action - please repost

Spread the word!

Please forward and re-post these urgent calls to action

December 1, 2006 - Oaxaca is under siege. More than 140 people were
arrested November 23rd through 25th and three were killed. The repression
has reached new heights, with disappearances occuring daily. The Federal
Police (PFP) are deploying special operation units to crush the popular
uprising, and have issued statements declaring that they will do whatever
it takes to put an end to the movement by December 1st, when the new
government takes power.

APPO, the popular assembly of the peoples of Oaxaca, has issued a call for
solidarity demonstrations on December 1st. International attention and
pressure is desperately needed.
