Viva la revolución

Teachers in Oaxaca, Mexico, still on strike. They also sabotaged the national radio station trasmitter. (Wouldn't it be nice to sabotage a Fox News transmitter?) It was only for 15 minutes but good for them.

Update: Somebody means business. Jaime René Calvo Aragón of the Consejo Central de Lucha, the government-sponsored dissident movement in Oaxaca, was found in a ditch with his throad cut. Apparently, he opposed the Asamblea popular de los pueblos de Oaxaca, which has blamed agents provocateur.
