Postby greencrow0 » Thu Oct 05, 2006 10:59 am

Subject: FW: Oaxaca Crisis Timeline & Requested Urgent Action<br>Importance: High<br><br>Global Exchange has put out a short story and a very useful timeline of events. It is posted on the US site of onewold.net:<br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://us.oneworld.net/article/view/140115/1/">us.oneworld.net/article/view/140115/1/</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br> <br>Indymedia UK has posted a story today from Nancy Davies of Narco News in Oaxaca saying that there are now 5000 police from other states dressed in army fatigues and that they believe a violent attack is imminent. She pleads for people to write to government officials (and lists names and e-mail addresses) to not seek a violent solution: <!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2006/10/352440.html">www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2...52440.html</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br> <br>If you are able to write and pray for a peaceful resolution tonight, please do. As promised, I will work on a more formal urgent action to go out to our general membership tomorrow. Thanks,<br> <br><br>John Gabor,<br>B.C. Animator<br>for Development and Peace.<br><br><br>======================<br><br>I received this e-mail from some fellow peaceniks and thought the links were very interesting as we never see this in the MSM.<br><br>gc <p></p><i></i>
