Mon, 03/24/2008

 

As the corporate media declares that the government of Mexico has succeeded in suppressing the people's uprising in Oaxaca, the people of Oaxaca are emerging to tell a very different story.

In Oaxaca this week, a forum was held to give a voice to the political prisoners that are still being held from the 2006 people's revolt.

Here in Oregon, as well, the voices of the people of Oaxaca are coming through in a variety of forums, films and public presentations.

Last night was a film documenting the life and death of Brad Will, who was shot and killed by paramilitaries in Oaxaca.

And on Thursday, a workshop will be held which presents videos created by the people of Oaxaca, and a presentation about the neoliberal agenda.

Simone, the organizer of the event, spoke to KBOO's Jenka Soderberg about the event:
