Authentic Journalists, Undeterred by State Violence, Record the Invasion of Oaxaca by the PFP (23:18)
October 30, 2006
Federal Preventative Police (PFP) advanced on the city of Oaxaca yesterday in the hopes of dislodging the Peoples’ Popular Assembly of the City of Oaxaca (APPO.) In the face of an impending military occupation of their city, determined residents resisted the invasion without resorting to violence. This video testimony was shot by authentic journalists determined to document the truth about the use of state violence. Contrary to official reports, at least two people died, including Jorge Alberto López Bernal, a nurse, who appears in this video.
