Molechocolate posts a video which suggests that the violence in Oaxaca could soon spread throughout all of Mexico. Finally, the one silver lining, Olganza says the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca (APPO) have agreed to meet with the Secretary of Governance (ES) to discuss their demands which include the resignation of Governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz.
