The War is On in Oaxaca

The war is on in Oaxaca. It began at 8:00 AM with the gathering of the PFP and an infiltration by porros (hired thugs) along with state police in plain clothes. There are 5,000 PFP and many people if they're out there. The Rector of the university has called for unity and denounced the federal gov't. The University is an autonomous community. The radio is calling for pacific resistance but since the feds are using tear gas the people are pissed off and the report is that they are starting to use rocks and sticks. Several people have been arrested and wounded, including three children. A helicopter is there and presumably may airlift people to the airport for getting them into custody.

The barricades are up in Cinco Señores and the area surrounding University City. Most of the barricades are cars and barbed wire.

They also are calling for barricades at Santo Domingo where the APPO is camped.
