AYOTZINAPA CARAVANA: Family members of 43 missing college students share their struggle in Oxnard (VIDEO)

ROB VARELA/THE STAR Blanca Luz Nava Velez (second from left) and Estanislao Mendoza Chocolate, part of the Caravana 43, prepare to address a standing-room-only crowd at the Café on A after leading a march from Plaza Park in Oxnard on Thursday. Their sons are among the 43 students missing in Mexico.

“…we do not hold moments of silence, for that is a minute of seeking justice that is lost, and an extra minute that our families will be sequestered.”

(OXNARD, CA) If you read the VC Star article (see below) about the Caravana 43 event for Ayotzinapa, you’d note the Star’s softening of critical statements that were made that evening. For example, “The United States should stop giving guns to Mexico” could imply that it is primarily individual sellers, rather that than government action that contribute to the war by supplying arms. This point might have been more accurately represented as “The United States government should cut off its foreign aid – 2.1 billion since 2008 – of which a significant portion has come in the form of arms and military training, often under the pretext of counter-narcotics, and used under questionable human rights practices.”

Over 100,000 people have died since the Mexican government, under the guidance of its U.S. sponsors, escalated the drug war. Simultaneously, those who have called for an end to the war represent some of those most detrimentally affected by militarization: the indigenous, poor, and rural populations in Mexico, as well as against social movement activists. While the cartels and law enforcement remain firm partners in Mexico, those who expose the corruption and manufactured poverty are seen as a threat to the vast wealth garnered both through the drug trade, U.S., donations, and trade agreements such as NAFTA, The Trans-pacific partnership, and Plan Mexico(Merida), which have displaced subsistence farmers from their traditional land once guaranteed to them by the Mexican constitution.

This caravan represented a transnational organizing effort, and drew connections between the exploitation of farmworkers in both the U.S.’s and Mexico’s agricultural industrial complexes – specifically speaking to the communities of Oxnard and San Quintin. It also acted as an encounter between victims of state violence in both Mexico and the U.S., as the Limon and Ramirez families, who both lost their loved ones at the hands of the Oxnard Police Department, met with the families of the 43. Working through the political process of community assembly, an attendee requested a moment of silence for those missing students of Ayotzinapa, to which their families replies, “We appreciate the sentiment, but we do not hold moments of silence, for that is a minute of seeking justice that is lost, and an extra minute that our families will be sequestered.”

Below you will find some videos of the families of Ayotzinapa speaking in Oxnard on 3/26/15.

“Hoy a 6 meses sin saber nada de mi hijo, el gobierno se lo llevo, no nos lo quiere entregar eso es otra cosa”

“Sé que no hay ni un gobierno ni aquí ni en ninguna parte que escuche una situación como esta. Porque no hay nadie que haga justicia. Porque todo el gobierno es el mismo, la misma corrupción, tanto aquí en Estados Unidos como en México. Y en realidad yo no me asusto de lo que está pasando en México porque ya estoy acostumbrada. Porque desde que tengo uso de razón sé que es un país corrupto. Pero aquí pensé que había más leyes y que era todo más justo pero en realidad es lo mismo.” Sra. Limón, Oxnard CA

“I know that there isn’t a government anywhere that will listen to a situation like this. Because there isn’t anyone that will do justice. Because all government is the same. The same corruption, here in the U.S. as in Mexico. And actually I am not frightened by what’s happening in Mexico because I’m used to it. Since I can remember I’ve known that it’s a corrupt country. But here in the U.S. I thought things were different, I thought there were more laws and that there was justice but in reality it’s the same.” Mrs. Limón, Oxnard, CA

VENTURA COUNTY STAR: Family members of 43 missing Mexican college students share their struggle in Oxnard

OXNARD, Calif. – About 100 people gathered Thursday night in Oxnard as relatives of missing college students shared memories of the young people many fear were massacred six months ago in Mexico.

Forty-three students vanished Sept. 26 from the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers’ College of Ayotzinapa after a conflict with police in the southwestern state of Guerrero. Some Mexican authorities suspect they were turned over to a drug gang to be killed.

But those who spoke in a panel discussion Thursday at Café on A in Oxnard do not believe that.

Blanca Luz Nava Velez’s youngest son went missing that day. She thinks the Mexican government took her child, even though Mexican authorities claim they haven’t.

“They don’t have a heart,” Velez said of the government.

Velez said she constantly has pain in her heart as she worries about her son, who she believes is still alive as she continues to spread awareness about the missing students.

Relatives and supporters of the students have been touring the United States to raise awareness about the incident. In Oxnard, the so-called Caravana 43 was to be joined by relatives of people killed by Oxnard police, according to the activist groups hosting the event, Todo Poder al Pueblo Collective, Oxnard Unidos Por Mexico and Frente Ayotzinapa USA.

For almost an hour before the discussion, people dressed in Aztec regalia beat drums and danced in a circle around the victims’ families at Plaza Park while they made an offering of flowers. Then the event moved to Café on A for the panel discussion.

Angel de La Cruz Ayala said he was one of the students at the school when the 43 were taken. He said the missing students had done nothing wrong and that they were youths with dreams and that the incident finally opened people’s eyes to how bad the Mexican government is. He said the United States should stop giving guns to Mexico because they are used for violence, two things reiterated by the other speakers.

Estanislao Mendoza Chocolate, whose son is one of those missing, said he is reminded of what happened when he sees the empty place at the dinner table where his son would sit.

Like many of the victims’ relatives, he has gone to the site where Mexican authorities said the students were killed and their bodies burned, but the families and the experts who have accompanied them to the site said there is no evidence of that. Bodies have been found, he said, but they are not those of the missing students.

“The more you look, the more graves you find,” he said.

Meagan Hockaday: Young mother of 3 killed in her home by Oxnard Police

Rest In Peace // Que Descanse En Paz

[Español abajo] The Todo Poder Al Pueblo Collective offers our sincere condolences to the family, friends, and young daughters of Meagan Hockaday, who was killed by the Oxnard Police Department when police responded to a domestic violence call at her home on Saturday, March 28, 2015. The OPD are alleging that she was holding a knife, which compelled the officer to open fire while fearing for his or her life.

We are not jumping to any conclusions but the OPD’s history of extrajudicial killings force us to ask:

1) Why was a firearm deployed as a first resort instead of less-lethal means of force (tazer, bean bags, etc)?
2) Who was the officer that killed Hockaday? In how many other incidents has s/he used excessive force or drawn their weapon in similar incidents?
3) What sort of training has the Oxnard PD undergone in cases of domestic violence or mental illness, especially since the August 2012 killing of Michael Mahoney and the February 2014 shooting of Rosa Guillen?
4) Why does the City of Oxnard continue to stand by Chief Jeri Williams’ claims that a CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT BODY is NOT necessary for a police department that has recently been forced to pay millions of dollars in settlements and is involved in at least 2, possibly 3 ongoing investigations of extrajudicial killings by officers?

Women of color suffer disproportionate violence at the hands of the state, and every 28 hours in the USA a black woman, man or child is executed by either a police or correctional officer, a security guard, or a vigilante. In such conditions we can never give the Oxnard Police Department the instant, un-critical benefit of the doubt and we urge the community to continue to demand answers to the questions raised by the tragic killing of Meagan Hockaday.

El Colectivo Todo Poder al Pueblo ofrece nuestras más sinceras condolencias a la familia, amigxs, e hijas de Meagan Hockaday, quien fue asesinada por el departamento de policia de Oxnard cuando respondieron a una llamada de violencia doméstica en su hogar ayer, sábado 28 de Marzo. El departamento de policía alega que ella traía un cuchillo, y que eso forzo al policía a disparar al temer por su vida.

No estamos dando conclusiones, pero la historia de asesinatos extrajudiciales por el departamento de policia de Oxnard nos obligan a preguntar:

1) Por que usaron un arma de fuego en vez que otra fuerza menos letal?
2)Quien es el policía que mato a Hockaday? En cuantos otros incidentes ha usado estea policía la fuerza excesiva o ha sacado un arma de fuego en situaciones similares?
3) Que tipo de entrenamiento ha recibido el departamento de Oxnard para enfrentar casos de violencia doméstica o enfermedades mentales, especialmente desde que asesinaron a Michael Mahoney en Agosto de 2012 y en Febrero que dispararon a Rosa Guillen?
4) Por qué la ciudad de Oxnard continúa a respaldar a la jefa de policía, Jeri Williams, cuando dice que una JUNTA DE SUPERVICION CIVIL sobre la policia NO es necessaria para un departamento que ha tenido que pagar millones de dolares en acuerdos y esta involucrado en al menos dos, probablemente, trés investigaciones continuas de asesinatos extrajudiciales por policías?

La violencia del estado afecta desproporcionadamente a mujeres de color, y cada 28 horas en Estados Unidos, una mujer, hombre, o nina/o afroamericanx es ejecutadx por un policía, funcionario de prisiones, guardia de seguridad, o vigilante. En las condiciones presentes, no podemos darle el beneficio de la duda sin criticar al departameto de policia de Oxnard, y urgemos a la communidad que continue a demandar respuestas a las preguntas que se han levantado por el trágico asesinato de Meagan Hockaday.

Pronunciamiento de Solidaridad de Oxnard con los Obreros de San Quintín

BannerESP

El colectivo de Todo Poder al Pueblo se adhiere a las demandas de los trabajadores agrícolas en el valle de San Quintín, Baja California. Siendo nosotros una organización de voluntarios con base  obreracon sede en Oxnard, California, una ciudad que se basa en la explotación diaria de miles de trabajadores que laboran en la fresa, cebolla y campos de cítricos, entendemos la necesidad de solidaridad incondicional con los trabajadores y campesinos de San Quintín, que se  están organizando y movilizando para defender su dignidad social, humana y los derechos laborales.

Asimismo, denunciamos enérgicamente la represión que está llevando a cabo por el gobierno de México y declaramos nuestra oposición a su carácter engañoso, hipócrita y mentiroso. El gobierno mexicano hace tiempo cierra sus oídos a las demandas de la gente y ha demostrado una y otra vez su descarado servilismo a los banqueros internacionales, las élites criminales locales e imperialistas de Estados Unidos que han creado el caos asolado por la pobreza que afecta a la vida de nuestras comunidades en ambos lados de la frontera. Tomando el lado de la industria de  sindicatos agrícolas parasitarios y charros, el gobierno de Enrique Peña Nieto y los desacreditados partidos políticos han ofrecido clara prueba de que la justicia y dignidad sólo puede ser defendida a través de nuestros propios esfuerzos organizados como gente trabajadora consciente, unida en la lucha para derrocar las instituciones de la explotación capitalista y la opresión que han llevado a la clase obrera mexicana a la ruina.

Las raíces del actual desastre se encuentran claramente en la implementación del Tratado de Libre comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN), hace 21 años formó parte de una gran ofensiva contra trabajadores en todo el mundo, puso en marcha bajo la bandera de la “globalización”. El TLCAN desató la toma generalizada de la economía mexicana por grandes empresas agrícolas y de manufactureras estadounidenses y en el proceso los pilares de la economía mexicana, las granjas de subsistencia de los pequeños pueblos a las industrias nacionales orgullosas como PEMEX fueron destruidos o robados de la gente. La inestabilidad resultante ha incluido ataques importantes a los derechos de los trabajadores, el auge de los cárteles de la droga, feminicidios generalizados, la creciente corrupción de las autoridades locales, estatales y nacionales,  el desarrollo de un masivo aparato (DHS-ICE) para la represión, detención y deportación de migrantes no autorizados en los Estados Unidos.

El TLCAN ha desplazados millones de trabajadores mexicanos a través de la parte continental de “zona de libre comercio” convirtiendo a esta en una de las mayores migraciones de masa conocidas en la historia, golpea además fuertemente a las comunidades indígenas y pobres de México. Este ‘milagro económico’ del libre comercio sin restricciones dispersa a las comunidades de las regiones del sur de México como Oaxaca y Guerrero de lengua Mixteca a tales regiones distantes como San Quintín, Oxnard, Salinas, Fresno, Oregón, Washington, el medio oeste americano, Florida y aún más allá. A pesar de nuestra contribución a las ganancias de los súper ricos, nuestras comunidades son todavía objeto de inseguridad económica y de  violencia de estado (incluyendo negligencia sistémica por entidades educativas y las instituciones de salud) y falta de representación política.

Mientras vivamos en diferentes regiones, nuestros explotadores son una y la misma: las empresas transnacionales que llevan por nombres tales como BerryMex, Driscoll’s, Sunkist, Nestlé, Costco y Wal-Mart, entre otros – monolíticas empresas privadas que ejercen el poder real sobre nuestros funcionarios elegidos y llamados “representantes”. Además de maltratar a nuestros hermanos y hermanas en los campos, estos mismos explotadores nos han expuesto a un ambiente contaminado aquí en Oxnard mediante el uso descontrolado de pesticidas diferentes que forman una capa invisible de veneno que envuelve nuestras escuelas y barrios. La solidaridad de los productores en sus diversas asociaciones y sus estrechas relaciones con el estado, muestran la necesidad de nosotros, en la parte inferior, para fortalecer nuestros lazos de solidaridad entre las comunidades, regiones y fronteras.

En estas condiciones, las luchas de los campesinos de San Quintín ofrecen los más brillantes destellos de esperanza. Mediante el bloqueo de las carreteras internacionales que acelerar la extracción despiadada de la riqueza de México, recursos y mano de obra, los trabajadores orgullosos de San Quintín con la toma de carreteras interrumpen y obstruyen las venas arteriales de un injusto sistema (capitalista) nos prefieren esclavos que vernos vivir  en paz y con dignidad. De pie y rechazando la humillación ante el atropello de los derechos humanos, abusos sexuales y abusos laborales, los trabajadores de San Quintín están abriendo horizontes y levantan la moral de los trabajadores no sólo en el estado de Baja California, no sólo en América del norte, sino en todo el mundo.

Cerramos esta declaración con algunas palabras de la misión del colectivo Todo Poder al Pueblo:

“La historia y la experiencia han demostrado que la unidad y organización son capaces de transformar una situación de aceptación pasiva en uno donde las personas son capaces de defenderse de una posición de fuerza y pueden tomar la iniciativa en la lucha para un futuro digno. Un pueblo optimista, asertivo y autodeterminado es capaz de superar el miedo, la hostilidad y la corrupción general de quienes apuntan hacia nosotros”.

VICTORIA PARA LOS TRABAJADORES AGRÍCOLAS DE SAN QUINTÍN…  ¡ VIVA LA HUELGA!

¡ VIVA LA SOLIDARIDAD LABORAL INTERNACIONAL Y RESISTENCIA OBRERA!

LA LUCHA OBRERA NO TIENE FRONTERAS!

Oxnard Statement of Solidarity with the Workers of San Quintín

Banner

ESPAÑOL

The Todo Poder al Pueblo Collective warmly pledges our full support for the demands of the struggling agricultural workers in the Valley of San Quintín, Baja California. As an all-volunteer, working class organization based in Oxnard, CA, a city which relies on the daily exploitation of thousands of workers who toil in the strawberry, onion, and citrus fields, we understand the need for unconditional solidarity with the workers and campesinos of San Quintín, who are organizing and mobilizing to defend their basic dignity and their social, human, and labor rights.

Likewise, we strongly denounce the repression that is being carried out by the government of Mexico and declare our opposition to its deceptive, hypocritical, and lying nature. The Mexican government long ago shut its ears to the demands of the people, and has proven time and again its shameless subservience to the international bankers, local criminal elites, and United States imperialists who have created the poverty-stricken turmoil that affects the lives of our communities on both sides of the border. By taking the side of the parasitic Agricultural industry and charro unions, the government of Enrique Peña Nieto and the discredited political parties have offered clear proof that justice and dignity can only be defended through our own organized efforts as conscious working people, united in the fight to overturn the institutions of capitalist exploitation and oppression that have brought the Mexican working class to ruin.

The roots of the present disaster clearly lie in the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), now in its 21st year, which was a part of a major offensive against working people throughout the world launched under the banner of “globalization.” NAFTA unleashed the widespread takeover of the Mexican economy by large American agricultural and manufacturing corporations and in the process, pillars of the Mexican economy ranging from the subsistence farms of small villages to the proud national industries such as PEMEX were either destroyed or robbed from the people.  The resulting instability has included major attacks on the rights of workers, the rise of vicious drug cartels, widespread feminicides, the ever-increasing corruption of local authorities, and the development of a massive apparatus (DHS-ICE) for the repression, detention and deportation of unauthorized migrants in the United States.

NAFTA displaced millions of Mexican workers across the continental “free trade zone” in one of the largest mass-migrations known in history, hitting indigenous and poor communities of Mexico the hardest. This ‘economic miracle’ of unrestrained free trade scattered communities from the Mixteco-speaking regions of Southern Mexico such as Oaxaca and Guerrero to such distant regions as San Quintín, Oxnard, Salinas, Fresno, Oregon, Washington, the American Midwest, Florida, and beyond. Despite our contribution to the profits of the super-rich, our communities are still subject to economic insecurity, state violence (including systemic neglect by educational bodies and healthcare institutions), and political non-representation.

While we may live in different regions, our exploiters are one and the same: the transnational corporations who go by such names as BerryMex, Driscolls, Sunkist, Nestlé, Costco, and Walmart, among others – monolithic private companies who wield the real power over our elected officials and so-called “representatives.”  In addition to mistreating our brothers and sisters in the fields, these same exploiters have rendered our air toxic here in Oxnard through the unrestrained use of various pesticides that form an invisible layer of poison that enshrouds our schools and neighborhoods. The solidarity of the growers in their various associations, and their tight relations with the state, shows the need for us, at the bottom, to strengthen our bonds of solidarity across communities, regions, and borders.

In these conditions, the fighting campesinos of San Quintín offer the brightest flashes of hope. By blocking the international highways that expedite the ruthless extraction of wealth from Mexican resources and labor, the proud workers of San Quintín are disrupting and obstructing the arterial veins of an unjust system (capitalism) that would rather see us enslaved than living in dignity and peace. By standing up and rejecting humiliation in the face of widespread sexual abuses, assaults on the rights of labor, and the trampling of human rights, the workers of San Quintín are opening horizons and lifting the morale of workers not only in Baja California, not only in North America, but across the globe.

We close this statement with some words from the Mission Statement of the Todo Poder al Pueblo Collective:

“History and experience have shown that unity and organization are capable of transforming a situation of passive acceptance into one where people are able to defend themselves from a position of strength and can take the initiative in the fight for a dignified future. An optimistic, assertive, and self-determined people are capable of overcoming the fear, hostility, and general corruption of those who take aim at us.”

VICTORY TO THE AGRICULTURAL WORKERS OF SAN QUINTIN ~ LONG LIVE THE STRIKE!

LONG LIVE INTERNATIONAL LABOR SOLIDARITY AND WORKING-CLASS RESISTANCE!

THE WORKERS STRUGGLE HAS NO BORDERS!

Caravana 43 Oxnard: Parents of the 43 disappeared in Ayotzinapa to hold forum

Caravana 43 Oxnard: Parents of the 43 abducted students from Ayotzinapa, Mexico to participate in forum with relatives of local police brutality victims

When/Where:       Thursday, March 26, 2015

                              Plaza Park, 500 C. St., Oxnard (5:30pm)

                              Café on A, 438 South A. St., Oxnard (6:00pm)

Who: On Thursday, March 26, 2015, Oxnard will be welcoming the caravan of parents and supporters of the 43 students who were kidnapped and disappeared on September 26, 2014 from the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers’ College of Ayotzinapa in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico.

The family members of the 43 will also joined by the relatives of Oxnard’s police killings in 2012. The event will be hosted by the Todo Poder al Pueblo Collective and Oxnard Unidos Por Mexico, who will be hosting the family members and allowing them to recount their pain, trauma, and the difficulties they’ve experienced since the disappearance of their children.

What: Parents and supporters of the 43 Ayotzinapa students from Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico will be visiting Oxnard on March 26, 2015. Oxnard marks one of many visits in a major solidarity tour by the Caravana 43, which is taking the parents to various communities across the United States. Oxnard’s events will begin at Plaza Park on 500 C st. with a traditional Aztec dance ceremony at 5:30pm. This will be followed by a free community forum that will be held a block away at the Café on A / Acuña Gallery and Cultural Center at 6:00 pm, which will discuss the violent policies of the governments of Mexico and the United States, the need for solidarity, and the continued importance of local community organizing,

Why: March 26, 2015 marks exactly 6 months since the disappearance of the 43 students from Ayotzinapa. Despite the prosecution of former Iguala Mayor  Jose Luis Abarca and his wife Maria de Los Angeles de Pineda, the students are still missing (with the exception of one, whose body has been identified). The Federal Government of Mexico under President Enrique Peña Nieto  has officially declared that the 43 students died at the hands of drug traffickers, yet international human rights groups and investigators have refuted these claims. Meanwhile, the past 6 months have seen the development of a massive social movement that has echoed the demands for justice by the families and friends of the missing students. The events in Ayotzinapa have called into question the policies and practices of the United States’ failed “War on Drugs,” which has resulted in economic support and the shipment of weapons to the government of Mexico under the Merida Initiative – weapons which are often used against Mexico’s organized social movements that are fighting against government privatizations and attacks on the poor. These weapons are also often passed from corrupt officials, military, and police directly into the hands of Mexico’s notorious narco-traffickers.

Oxnard stands with Ayotzinapa, demands end to US aid for repression

10850029_757764280966339_953032561562856554_n

En Español

The Todo Poder Al Pueblo Collective and Oxnard Unidos por Mexico, as members of Frente Ayotzinapa USA, sponsors the commission of the 43 parents of Ayotzinapa who are now in the United States, visiting various cities and pressuring to the Mexican government of Enrique Peña Nieto to present alive and well the 42 students still missing who have been forcibly disappeared by the government of the State of Guerrero. We demand that those who are guilty of the abduction and attempted murder of the young students be punished with imprisonment.

For the families of the students, the investigation into the forced disappearance of the students by the Normal Rural Raúl Isidro Burgos of Ayotzinapa cannot be closed. The government’s official report tried to sanitize the government of Enrique Peña Nieto and the image of the Mexican government at an international level  by blaming drug traffickers, completely omitting the fact that it was the state police and the Mexican army who were complicit in the disappearance of the students on the night of September 26, 2014 in Iguala, Guerrero.

Therefore, we endorse the demands of the parents of the 43 missing students. In addition, we demand that the US Government and the administration of Barack Obama stop participating as an accomplice to these crimes with 2.1 billion dollars spent on the training and arming of repressive forces in Mexico. We demand that the Mexican government be punished under the US Leahy Law for violating human rights agreements during Mexico’s execution of the infamous “War on Drugs”.

Therefore, we demand:

  • STOP PLAN MEXICO!
  • ALIVE YOU TOOK THEM, ALIVE WE WANT THEM BACK!
  • NO TO PLAN MERIDA!

English

El Colectivo Todo Poder al Pueblo y Oxnard Unidos por México, miembros del Frente Ayotzinapa USA, se adhiere a la comisión de los 43 Padres de Ayotzinapa que se encuentran en Estados Unidos visitando varias ciudades presionando de esta manera al Gobierno de Enrique Peña Nieto a presentar con vida a los 42 estudiantes desaparecidos forzadamente por el gobierno del Estado de Guerrero y a castigar con cárcel a los culpables de los asesinatos perpetrados y el secuestro de los jóvenes estudiantes.

Para las familias de los estudiantes, la investigación sobre la desaparición forzada de los estudiantes de la Normal Rural Raúl Isidro Burgos de Ayotzinapa no se puede cerrar.

La versión oficial que intentó limpiar al gobierno de Enrique Peña Nieto culpando solamente a los narcotraficantes y omitiendo que fue la policía estatal y el ejército Mexicano quienes intervinieron en la muerte y desaparición de los jóvenes estudiantes la fatídica noche del 26  de Septiembre de 2014 en Iguala, Guerrero no es más que una artimaña para limpiar la imagen del gobierno a nivel mundial.

Por lo tanto ratificamos las exigencias de los Padres de los 43 desaparecidos y ademas exigimos al Gobierno de los Estados Unidos y a la administración de Barack Obama se omita de participar como cómplice al participar con 2.1 billones de dolares utilizados en el entrenamiento de fuerza represivas y compra de armamento. Exigimos castigue bajo la ley Leahy al Gobierno Mexicano por violar los acuerdos de respeto a los Derechos Humanos en la aplicacion de la famosa “guerra contra el narcotráfico” por lo tanto demandamos:

  • ALTO al Plan México!
  • VIVOS LOS LLEVARON,VIVOS LOS QUEREMOS!!
  • NO  AL PLAN MERIDA!
