Resistance and Repression in Oaxaca

College of the Atlantic Professor Gray Cox has an excellent op-ed piece in today's Bangor Daily News about the nonviolent uprising in Oaxaca in southern Mexico, and the violent military, police, and paramilitary response to it.

Oaxaca is Mexico's second poorest state, a region where the falling corn prices brought on by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) have devastated the local economy.

The Narco News Bulletin provides excellent background information, analysis, and continuous updates about the struggle in Oaxaca.
