Members of the Local 22 of the National Education Workers Union (SNTE) delivers a list of economic grievances to Ulises Ruiz Ortiz, the governor of the Mexican state of Oaxaca. After receiving no official response, hundreds of teachers start to encamp themselves in the state’s historical center with the support of numerous anti-neoliberal organizations.

The Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO) is formed in response to the recent crackdown. It is “comprised of around 365 social, political, human rights, non-governmental, environmental, gender, student, and union organizations, the indigenous communities, and thousands of independent Oaxacans.” Its main goal is the ouster of “the fascism personified in the state governor,” Ulises Ruiz Ortiz.
