Battle of Oaxaca

There has been a virtual English language news blackout, except for Democracy Now’s Monday edition, of what has been happening in Oaxaca the last 3 days. A huge and peaceful demonstration against the occupation by federal police forces of Oaxaca City was attacked Saturday afternoon by the very same police. Hundreds have been rounded up, and many have been tortured even while being arrested. Many have been either disappeared or taken out of state to prisons where they are being further brutalized. The people of Oaxaca have resisted, and fighting apparently has continued up to now. See section 2 of a 4 part report from La Jornada
