Uproar in Mexico— A Cry for Justicia!
End the Repression in Guerrero & Everywhere

The September massacre of 43 poor student teachers in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero has set off a firestorm of protest in Mexico and at Mexican Consulates in the U.S. Crooked local police turned the students over to a gang who murdered them. In a related case from Olinalá, Guerrero, Nestora Salgado was thrown in prison over one year ago for organizing an indigenous self-defense squad that was standing up to corrupt officials and narco-violence. Let’s build a movement to stop police blood-shed north and south of the border, and to hold the U.S. and Mexican governments accountable for the epidemic of brutality and racism unleashed against people of color, the young and the poor.

Speakers
Esther Muñoz, member of MECHx@ at City College of San Francisco
Moisés Montoya, Chicano unionist & Left organizer

Justice for Rasmea Odeh!



Rasmea Odeh, associate director of the Arab American Action Network (AAAN) in Chicago since 2004, was found guilty this month of trumped-up immigration charges brought by the Department of Homeland Security. She now faces a ten-year prison sentence. Tortured decades ago into a confession by Israeli security forces, Odeh's imprisonment then has been used to entrap her now.

Discuss how to support Rasmea as she appeals her case and the ongoing struggle for Palestinian rights. Everyone welcome.
