Oaxaca Benefit, Saturday 16th December from 8pm till 2am

We are asking for £5 suggested donations but any other help counts.

There will be Latin-American food, live music from Latin-American and London bands, and Screening of Indymedia films with discussion.

This Saturday 16th of December a benefit is being organized in Rampart Social Centre in support of the people of Oaxaca who have organized themselves as the “APPO” Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca.

The APPO was formed by more than 300 social organisations that unified after a major teachers strike was violently suppressed by the governor of Oaxaca City Ulises Ruiz Ortiz. It started formally between the dates of 17th and 21st of June 2006

During the 6 months of their struggle the APPO have controlled radio stations, tv stations, universities and other public buildings.

In the last months the repression has been very violent and the government won’t stop until it has completely destroyed any sign of resistance by the people of Oaxaca.

The people of Oaxaca needs our support. We will be fundraising for money and spreading information and awareness of their struggle any other kind of help such as donated old laptops, digital cameras etc. are also welcome.
