Oaxaca Remembers Brad Will

As many as 20,000 people gathered in Oaxaca City on Saturday this weekend to remember Brad Will, the American journalist shot dead a year ago.

The marchers also walked in memory of the Oaxacan teacher Alonso Fabian who was shot dead the same day during clashes between teachers and members of the APPO, and municipal police and government forces.

Police sources told press agency EFE that 20,000 people marched from the suburban municipalities of Santo Lucia and San Bartolo Coyotepec to the centre of Oaxaca City.

Bra Will was shot dead by an as yet unknown assailant on October 27th 2006 whilst covering the clashes in Oaxaca City for Indymedia. Justice has yet to be served.
