| Friends, It
is impossible for me to keep up with local
developments here and to get the information out to you in a timely
fashion. Unfortunately the local daily newspaper Noticias does
not maintain a website that is regularly either up to date or complete.
Thus even readers of Spanish who go to the Noticias website, at

events reported in the printed edition.
As it happens, the website right now has two reports from this morning's issue which, if I have time, I will translate and post subsequently. They are

A third report in today's paper on yesterday's actions is not on the Noticias website. To make it available in the same format as the item below, an e-mail, I would have to retype it and then translate it. The e-mail is posted on the Oaxaca Study-Action Discussion site at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/oaxacastudyactiongroup/message/2658 .
An e-mail I received yesterday is about the arbitrary arrest
of a young activist. He has not, so far as I know, been released. More
than likely they beat the shit out of him, as is their practice.
There's no shortage of cowards ready to do Ulises Ruiz Ortiz's (URO's)
dirty work of terrorizing ordinary people. And Mr. Felipe Calderon,
dressed in his "white collar" facade of respectability, is backing URO
to the hilt, two fascists working in tandem with a third, George W.
Subject: "We also ask for international solidarity to break
the silence in the face of so much repression"
