News From The Front - Oaxaca
Many of you know that I work and serve in Oaxaca, Mexico. For the last several months there has been an ongoing struggle there between the teachers of that state and the government of Oaxaca. You can read about that here on one of my prior postings.
Monday, the Federal government, headed by President Vicente Fox, sent in troops to dislodge the protesters after an upsurge in violence last week. The picture above is from that struggle. There are many more pictures posted here. Please pray for Mexico and Oaxaca during these tense times.

I am sorry that the link for the pictures is no longer working. All I can say is that someone took down almost 100 pictures of a people struggling against what they see as an incredibly oppressive situation. If the site again becomes "live", I will repost. ntil then keep praying for the people of Oaxaca and the resignation of Ulises Ruiz.
