Students seize radio station
Mie'rcoles 02 de mayo de 2007
OAXACA CITY - A group of students took over a university radio station in
Oaxaca City on Monday and transmitted messages in support of a leftist
movement demanding the governor's resignation.
The students forced their way into Radio Universidad, which had served as
the nerve center for the Oaxaca People's Assembly (APPO). The group led
protests last year calling for Gov. Ulises Ruiz to resign, virtually
paralyzing the city for months.
"This is a peaceful takeover and we're doing it with the rights that we have
as university students," said an improvised radio announcer, according to
the government news agency Notimex.
The students called on others to participate in Tuesday's march to demand
the release of APPO leaders who were arrested in December, deflating the
movement. They said that on Wednesday they would leave the station and block
highways throughout the state.
