Documentary about another current Mexican political crisis

For those who have begun to follow the events in Oaxaca due to learning of Brad Will’s assassination there, I highly recommend this film about the conduct of the Mexican government in another community they have been repressing.

Be sure to watch all three parts of this documentary, and not just the first part, which starts out kind of slow. It is well worth the effort if you do, as this may well be the best documentary ever made about Mexico’s political situation. It records quite well the events that occurred at Atenco (a suburb of Mexico City) in May of this year. And understanding what happened at Atenco will fill you in quickly about what’s going on right now in Oaxaca.

(Parts 2 and 3 have been added in the comments.)
