Nez sez: Oaxaqueño Youth Under Attack

On January 15th, [2008], before the beginning of a youth march for the liberation of political prisoners, Urban Paramilitaries (porros) initiated a series of provocations to defame the social movement. Known urban paramilitaries (identified as Aladin and Crusty) have occupied and burned at least two buses to provoke violence before the march, and other urban paramilitaries have began to open fire at UABJO (Benito Juarez Autonomous University of Oaxaca). Students are being forced out of classrooms and clashes have ensued.

The youth march is scheduled for 4 pm and is beginning to get together. Students and organizers are concerned for their safety, seeing as how these tactics of provocation always lead to violence in peaceful actions. Please post widely and remain vigilant.
