Tell Mexican Officials: Return Oaxaca to the people
On June 5 thousands of federal police, soldiers and marines flooded Oaxaca, Mexico, under the guise of “safeguarding” the mid-term elections. However local residents and human rights leaders believe that the government used the elections as a ploy to militarize Oaxaca and stifle social movements working for change in the region since the military remains after the elections have ended.
Our partners in Mexico and 54 other non-governmental agencies are asking if you will stand in solidarity with them and demand that the military exit Oaxaca immediately.
