Just have to post this entire letter. Thank you, CUPW.

Dear President Fox;
On behalf of the 54,000 members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), I am writing you to protest in the strongest terms the violent military operation you have launched against the teachers and people of Oaxaca in the past two days.

A few days ago, protestors against the notoriously corrupt administration of Governor Ulises Ruiz, as well as observers, were shot and murdered by off-duty local officials and police. Your response, rather than to ensure that the assassins were brought to justice, has been to use violent military force on behalf of Governor Ruiz and his cronies.

Mr. President, CUPW cannot accept such ruthless repression, especially since it is being carried out by a NAFTA partner. We urge you to end this operation immediately.

Mr. President, the whole world is watching.

Sincerely,

Deborah Bourque, National President
Canadian Union of Postal Workers
