Oaxaca 2006: Women's Resistance Guerreras de Las Barracadas poster
by anonymous and Just Seeds
In 2006, an uprising in Oaxaca, Mexico against the repressive neoliberal regime of governor Ulises Ruiz occupied the state capital for 6 months. Women played a key role maintaining barricade and spontaneously organizing militant mass actions such as occupations of TV and radio stations. Oppressive gender roles shifted as Oaxacan women self-organized in the face of state and parliamentary violence, rape, and opposition from male-dominated spheres of the movement. These revolutionaries unleashed a powerful process of personal and collective transformation that threatened the foundations of their oppression within the household, the state, and the global economy.
