Actualité - Oaxaca Government Wants Police Back

Mexico, Jan 11 (Prensa Latina) - Ulises Ruiz, governor of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, requested that the Secretariat of Government on Thursday return the federal forces to help deal with the intensification of the social movement.

At his first meeting with Francisco Ramirez, secretary of Government, Ruiz asked for a security boost in Oaxaca capital as the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO) reactivated its protest actions.

The encounter came two days after denunciations against sexual abuse of fifteen APPO members, detained on Nov 25, by federal officers.

It also coincides with the presentation of those events before the Chamber of Deputies and with the decision of legislators of the Democratic Revolution Party to take such denunciations to the international court The Hague.

Ruiz s request is due to the new action plan by the social movement since the Secretariat of Government refused to resume talks on Monday, saying that APPO lacks a concrete agenda to transform Oaxaca.
