Dear Friends of C.A.S.A.,
On November 25th, Oaxacans commemorated the fiercest day of government repression against the social movement 2 years ago, when hundreds were arrested and tortured, with one of the biggest marches this year.
The most exciting event of the day for many was the return of Dr. Bertha Muñoz, fondly known as La Doctora, who has been in exile since the 25th of November of 2006. La Doctora was the main broadcaster on Radio Universidad and her voice brought people together and gave them hope in the most difficult times. Following a dispute at the march between different groups in the APPO, she invited everyone present to come out the following Sunday for a session of informal reflections.
Gustavo’s talks focused on the repression that continues, especially in the case of Brad Will’s murder, where protestors are being held responsible, despite ample evidence to the contrary. Read an interview with Juan Manuel Martinez, accused of the murder and held in Ixcotel. In November, many political prisoners were transferred and some brutally beaten in the process.
Many thanks to all of you who helped make the Teaching Rebellion Book and Speaker Tour possible!
