Oaxaca, Mexico: Violence escalates

The striking teachers and their APPO supporters have spread out through the city taking over by force radio and television stations. It is being reported that they now have five under their control. They are also reported to have burned or are burning eight city buses and two more police cars.

This is in response to the destruction of the broadcasting equipment inside the public radio and TV studios which the APPO took over on August 1 and renamed Cookpot Radio. One APPO supporter is reported shot in the leg in that confrontation which took place at 3:30 this morning.
