To the people of Mexico

To the Social Organizations

To the Teachers in the struggle

Dear Comrades in Oaxaca:

Our first nations people of Mexico throughout history have suffered the repression and oppression of the neoliberal governments, the 9th of May in 2015 our farm worker brothers and sisters suffered such a repression in its maximum expression; where children, mothers and fathers, elderly farm workers were shot at and beaten by federal police. It is our duty to defend our people and communities, to secure a quality education for our children in exactly the same way we stood up for ourselves in the general strike that we observed last year, where more than 80,000 farm workers went out to the streets to demonstrate our inconformity against the state agricultural system of Baja California.

The tragedy that has happened in the state of Oaxaca at the hands of the Governor Gabino Cué Monteagudo hurts us deeply, the people of Mexico have been notified the lamentable deaths of 9 comrades that departed the earth defending public education for millions of Mexican children, we lived this in the state of Baja California and now we see it happening in Oaxaca.

We will never abandon our ideals nor the organization of our first nations people, the state governments have demonstrated that they are incapable of resolving what the people demand, in this context, we have rebelled because we are committed to overthrowing the system of Neoliberal Authority in our country: Mexico.

We join the mobilizations that the people of Mexico call for because we always will contribute to the wellbeing of our people and we will appropriate whatever needs necessary for these structural reforms to fall because they were never brought before the people and were approved by those few that benefit from the continued impoverishment and extreme poverty of millions of Mexicans.

STOP ALL REPRESSION AGAINST THE PEOPLE BY THE FEDERAL POLICE IN THE STATE OF OAXACA!

WE DEMAND THE IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF MEMBERS OF SECTION 22 OF OAXACA BY THE SECRETARY GENERAL RUBEN NUNEZ AND THE ORGANIZATIONAL SECRETARY FRANCISCO VILLALOBOS!

FOR A BETTER WORLD AND A NEW COUNTRY

IN SOLIDARITY

THE ALLIANCE OF NATIONAL, STATE AND MUNICIPAL ORGANIZATIONS FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
