Coverage of Atenco Violence & Solidarity Actions

Coverage of Atenco Violence, and of Solidarity Actions North of the Border, Continues

May 7, 2006
Please Distribute Widely

The reports from the Other Journalism with the Other Campaign are coming in to Narco News far too quickly to keep up through these alerts. Since the Mexican government unleashed a wave of brutal repression against the small farmers of Atenco and Texcoco, near Mexico City, the Other Journalism road team has kicked into overdrive.

In a new video newsreel released today, the Other Journalism video crew reports from New York City, where a quickly-organized protest outside the Mexican Consulate demanded that the Fox administration stop its attack on the people of Atenco. The newsreel includes clips and photographs from the last four years of struggle in San Salvador Atenco:

Other new articles include Al Giordano's reporting on the commercial media's lies about what is going on in the State of Mexico and Marcos' words for those mercenary journalists, first-hand accounts and testimonies from the people of Atenco in reports by Quetzal Belmont, Bertha Rodríguez Santos and Amber Howard, and much more.

To stay up-to-date as this turning point for the Other Campaign and, possibly, for all of Mexico unfolds, keep watching and reading the Other Journalism with the Other Campaign in the pages of Narco News:
