Day of Solidarity with the People of Oaxaca

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.

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.
