Actualité - Oaxaca Protestors back on Streets

Mexico, Jan 10 (Prensa Latina) - Faced with the suspension of the new round of negotiations with the Secretariat of Government, the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO) is resuming on Wednesday protests against local Governor Ulises Ruiz.

Activist leaders in that southern Mexican state decided to reactivate demonstrations to counter the position of that entity, which is trying to minimize the conflict and refused to resume talks scheduled for Tuesday.

APPO considered that the Secretariat of Government is making excuses to ignore Oaxaca s main demands, the resignation of Gov. Ruiz and the release of those arrested on Nov 25.

Hence, it will stage new actions, including protests in the capital and the main cities in the southern state.

Since the conflict began on Aug 14, 2006, APPO and the Secretariat of Government have held several rounds of negotiations without a peaceful solution
