CIPO-VAN would like to invite you to a very special fundraising dinner on June 14, 2014, which marks the 8th anniversary of what became known as “the Oaxaca Commune”: A popular uprising that started on June 14, 2006 against a State government unwilling to address the needs of the population and ready to use public and paramilitary forces in order to silence and murder dissenters.
We will prepare some of the best Mexican food & snacks you’ve ever had, and host a presentation and slideshow about the history of the struggle in Oaxaca since 2006. We will also present our most current campaign, Make Mexico Safe, in support of indigenous community organizers there.
If you cannot make it, please consider making a donation, and please give as generously as you can: without your support it will be very difficult to get this campaign off the ground!
Please call Gil at 604-828-8909 or Raul at 778-791-3419 to make a donation or for more information.
