Wednesday-Memorial Bike Ride for Brad

Yesterday there was a protest at the Mexican Consulate in NYC to demand justice for the killing of Brad Will, independent journalist who was shot dead in Oaxaca.

Here is a link to a media roundup of yesterday's protest including 2 videos taken yesterday.

This is a response from the Will Family:

"We are grieving over the tragic and senseless loss of Brad's life. Brad's friends and family admired his brave support for the downtrodden and willingness to act tirelessly upon his convictions. We believe he died doing what he loved. We will all miss Brad's compassionate, loving and adventurous spirit and it is our hope that his life's work reporting on the human struggle will never be forgotten."

Tomorrow there will be a memorial bike ride for Brad.
Bike Rides for Oaxaca!

If you are in New York City,
join the Friends of Brad Will
this Wednesday, November 1st for a Bike Ride
in Solidarity with the People of Oaxaca!

We are meeting this Wednesday at 1 pm at 40th St & West Side Highway (12th Ave)
and will be riding to:
1. Expose the commercial media’s distortion of the current situation in Oaxaca.
2. Raise awareness about the capitalist forces in our city that are benefiting from the continued repression of the people’s movement.
3. Highlight the hypocrisy of the Mexican government holding a seat on the Human Rights Council of the United Nations.

If you are not in New York City,
we are calling on people from around the world
to join the Zapatista call for November 1st actions
in solidarity with the people of Oaxaca
by organizing a Bike Ride for this Wednesday
or As Soon As Possible!
