CALL FROM THE POPULAR ASSEMBLY OF THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA TO THE SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS AND DEMOCRATIC AND REVOLUTIONARY LABOR UNIONS
TO THE INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES AND PARENTS
TO THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA, OF MEXICO AND OF THE WORLD
Today the people of Oaxaca write one of the best pages in their state’s last 30 years of history, as today, just as durring the years of independence and the Mexican Revolution, our people have decided to take the lead in the development of a national struggle of the workers. In Oaxaca, the Revolution of the 21st Century is brewing. The clamor of all its people for Ulises Ruiz Ortiz to leave our state, together with his accomplices and the big oligarchs and owners of wealth that sustain him, has gone the way of struggle in the streets, with the many mobilizations that have taken place. The people have decided to take the fate of this struggle into their own hands with the creation of the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca, which has begun to develop in the different regions of the state. Day by day, the process continues with the integration of the assemblies at the regional, district, municipal and community levels.
At this point in our struggle we have managed to take an impressive step forward in the unity of all the people toward the total defeat of Ulises Ruiz Ortiz. Nevertheless, we still have not achieved the goal of this struggle; we still have not kicked that fascist off our Oaxacan soil, as those who sustain him in power remain determined that he continue administering their wealth and hardening his policies toward the workers and people of Oaxaca. That is why there is a prevailing necessity that we continue strengthening our struggle and see it through to the end. For that reason, the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca makes this call:
To the national organizations and labor unions, to strengthen the caravans leaving Monday, June 26 from Oaxaca City toward Mexico City, to present the evidence against Ulises Ruiz Ortiz to the appropriate authorities. We also call on you to attend the next “mega-march” to be held in the city of Oaxaca, on June 28 at 3:00 p.m., within the framework of a “National Civic Strike” and the installation of the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca at the end of the march.
To the people of the world, so that they may, from their own countries, using the most diverse forms of struggle, organize demonstrations of solidarity within the framework of our next mega-march.
To the workers, peasant farmers, housewives, indigenous, youth, women, and everyone from the land of Oaxaca, to join the caravans that will leave from all the regions of our state toward the city of Oaxaca. We invite all the people to participate in the next mega-march on June 28, at 3:00 p.m., leaving from the Airport intersection; and to participate in the next session of the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca at the end of the mega-march, which will be held at the Benito Juarez Stadium in Oaxaca City.
To all the indigenous peoples and workers from all regions of the state, to put together the popular regional, district, municipal and community or neighborhood assemblies, thus guaranteeing that the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca is constructed from below.
From now on, it will only be in the hands of all the people that we bring this struggle to its conclusion. Our great army of teachers continues to proudly carry out its role, strengthening this struggle that is now everyone’s. That is why we need to strengthen our unity and organization, hitting this government and the rich that sustain it harder and harder, tearing from them al the economic and political power that they have usurped for so many years, usurping the sovereign power of the people.
LET US PROUDLY CARRY OUT OUR HISTORIC TASKS!
DOWN WITH ULISES RUIZ ORTIZ AND HIS ENTIRE GANG OF MURDERERS AND THIEVES!
LONG LIVE THE POPULAR ASSEMBLY OF THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA!
“ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE”
POPULAR ASSEMBLY OF THE PEOPLE OF OAXACA
