I was reading Brownfemi as I usally do, and a person named Labyrus(sp?) said something about Food Not Bombs, and so here's a little message from the site:
Food Not Bombs has been invited to start kitchens in Oaxaca, Mexico to support the rebellion. We need as many volunteers willing to travel to Oaxaca as soon as possible.
Conditions continue to deteriorate here as the state resorts to terrorist tactics in an effort to crush the now quite broad movement to remove the governor, Ulises Ruêz Ortêz, from office. There is far more than I can report in this note. George Salzman thinks the number of certified deaths was up to 5 by yesterday, and many have been injured, kidnapped and imprisioned. One of the people seized by the state and now incarcerated is the biologist Ramêro Aragon PZ¯rez. His illegal arrest and jailing is not more deserving of denunciation than those of any of the other political prisoners seized by the state in an effort to destroy the movement, but there's a strong effort being made to force his release by bringing international pressure to bear, and of course to publicize nationally and internationally the traagic events happening here.
One of the Oaxaca Study-Action Group members, Lois M. Meyer of the University of New Mexico , wrote on 22 Aug, "I emailed Ramiro Aragãn's wife the denunciation translated into English. She responded with the following brief and sobering message. Last Friday Ramiro was sentenced to 45 to 90 days in prison. She is hoping the letters of support will cause/force the judge to free him.
