From the Amor Y Resistencia site, a bilingual (Spanish and English) site recently added to our list of links under the Blogs heading.
The anarchists of the state of Oaxaca, the CODEP, the CIPO-RFM, the Bloque Autonomo and the Occupacion Intercultural en Resistencia, played a vital role in the resistance of the people of Oaxaca to the government of Ulisses Riuz Ortiz. Since the final breaching of the barricades numerous activists have been hunted down and presently languish in jail. Amongst these are Oscar Santa Maria Caro (20) from Oaxaca and Sacramento Delfino Cano Hernandez (29) of the State of Mexico City. Both were arrested on November 30th, 2006 and have been abused in detention since their arrest. They are being held in the regional prison CERESO in Miahuatlan de Porfirio Diaz, Oaxaca in Hall B, Cell 5.
The comrades of Amor Y Resistencia have issued a denunciation of these arrests including the abuse in prison and the death threats issued against Oscar and Sacramento to try and force them to confess to trumped up charges. they have also denounced the other arrests, abuses and even murders suffered by the activists of Oaxaca since last November.
For more information see the Amor Y Resistencia site above or email the collective at (in Spanish). The collective is presently trying to set up a paypal account for financial contributions to the defense. for info on this email .
