Oaxaca Update: Getting Uglier

Oaxaca MapKeeping you up to date on the situation in Oaxaca, Mexico – I came across this report of more abductions from Narconews. Blogger MarkinMexico also shares these indications that things are turning ugly down there. Father of 3 decapitated at APPO roadblock. President Fox and his cabinet draw the line. Guerrillas raising their ugly heads. The striking teachers and APPO refuse to negotiate.

IPS also has this follow up on the protestors’ preparation for an imminent siege to Shannon Young’s on-the-ground report from last week. Travel with increased caution.
