UPDATES: 10-2-am, Military overflights continue and Marcos: “Oaxaca is not just an emergency. It is also an example to follow.”

Parts of Oaxaca City have been occupied for over four months, in what started as a teachers strike and blossomed into a broad movement, Popular Assemblies of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO), following an attack by state forces on the teachers. APPO is demanding the removal of the corrupt and murderous PRI governor, Ulises Ruiz Ortiz, and the release of political prisoners. Apparently to appease PRI partners and corporate masters, Vincente Fox's federal forces are preparing for an attack.

September 30, 2006 - An attack seems imminent, according to Nancy Davies reporting for Narco News:
APPEAL FOR NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL AID
The word I have now is that there are about 5,000 men wearing army uniforms who are not army, but police, culled from other states like Vercruz and Morelia, that is to say, this is a PRI operation, not the federal troops, altho I don't know how our source explains the "naval" helicopters (maybe not?). The "police" are heavily armed, and the attack is supposed to happen around 10:00 PM Oaxaca time. The attack, code name cicloncinco, was revealed by the same person who informed our friend that there would be a drive-by shooting last night, which came true.

Indymedia Oaxaca reported on miltary overflights on September 30

APPO has called for demonstrations at Mexican Consulates.

Our friend says there are already a lot of PRD people gathered in the zocalo, thousands have gathered, apparently including some foreigners including univision and CNN.

Aid is asked for food, water, telephone lines. Only one radio station is still operating

Our friend told us to stay off the streets. Good friend. The one still operating radio station says, stay calm, not respond to acts of aggression which are provocations. Our friend says the city is "surrounded", not sure what that means.

Anybody who can email should do so, to any addresses you have, phone calls, faxes, etc. (cabascal@segob.gov.mx) the message is "no a la repression, si a la destitucion de Ulises Ruiz."

La Jornada has a live feed running on their site. Please disseminate news however you can.

There is still a chance that this is psychological warfare, very tiring. Doesn't look good right now.
