CALL TO ACTION AT THE MEXICAN CONSULATE
Protest the Murder of our friend Brad Will!
No Massacre! No Police!

Last Friday, October, 27, 2006, our friend Brad Will was brutally
murdered
by government-backed paramilitary forces in Oaxaca, Mexico, while
working
as a journalist for the global Indymedia network. Now, Brad's death is
being used as a pretext by the Mexican government and media to send in
federal police forces to massacre the people of Oaxaca.

In solidarity with the people of Oaxaca, we demand that:

1. All armed forces acting on behalf of the government against the
people of Oaxaca be removed immediately

2. The illegitimate governor Ruiz be removed immediately;

3. The federal government negotiate directly with the people on the
barricades in Oaxaca;

4. Guilty parties on all levels be identified and held accountable
for the assassinations of Brad Will and the other civilian victims
in Oaxaca.

We make these demands in support of the Oaxacan people’s efforts to
establish an
autonomous popular government that recognizes local traditions and
values.

JUSTICE FOR BRAD WILL!
JUSTICE FOR THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA!
NO MASSACRE IN OAXACA!
BRAD PRESENTE!

La prensa y el gobierno están usando la muerte de Brad como pretexto

1.La expulsión inmediata de todas las fuerzas armadas, trabajando de
parte

Hacemos estas demandas en solidaridad con el esfuerzo del pueblo de
Oaxaca

los
valores y tradiciones locales.

JUSTICIA PARA BRAD WILL!
JUSTICIA PARA LA GENTE DE OAXACA!
NO A LA MASACRE DE OAXACA!
