Actualité - Oaxaca Rips Ruiz, maybe Calderon

Mexico, Nov 14 (Prensa Latina) - The Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO) announced the beginning of an action plan to insist on the removal of Gov. Ulises Ruiz.

Reinstallation of barricades, occupation of public offices and roadblocks are among the measures they will implement in the regions of that southern Mexican state.

According to APPO leader Zenen Bravo Castellanos, demonstrations could even extend against president-elect Felipe Calderon if on Dec 1, Ruiz is still in the post.

Meanwhile, the constitutive congress of that organization, ending Monday, decided that APPO will be collectively run without a particular leader.

A state council composed by 260 people will represent the eight regions of Oaxaca and the different sectors in the movement.

Former political prisoners and those who have arrest warrants against them for participating in the movement will be honor members.
