> The situation became very tense toward the area north of downtown where
> the police attempted to surround the protesters. At some point, the PFP
> entered Santo Domingo, which is occupied by an APPO encampment, and then
> set fire to the camp. Many fires started throughout the city, which were
> set by saboteurs. A bus near the University City, a door of the Hotel
> Camino Real and then the legislative palace and external relationships
> buildings were all set aflame.
> <p>
> The police started using gunfire and also shot gas cans at the
> protestors. This practice has killed people before in Oaxaca on Nov. 2
> and in other places like Atenco. Radio Universidad made a general call
> to withdraw and to get off the streets. Three people were shot by police
> from two pickup trucks using heavy gunfire near the College of Medicine.
> Reports indicate more than one hundred shots heard. The killers took two
> of the bodies and left the third one lying at the spot.
> <p>
> Near a place known as El Pochote, a big group of people were surrounded by
> the police. Also in the streets of Fiallo y Colón, a big number of
> teachers and workers of the health department were detained and removed
> in two buses. To the north of downtown, several reports indicate that
> there were massive arrests of up to thirty people who were sprayed with
> gas after being detained. In a place called El Fortin, witnesses report how
> police were beating up and torturing detained ones before moving them
> from the spot aboard pickup trucks. Radio Universidad keeps transmitting
> and making announcements and denunciations.

> The pacific mobilization received an attack from the federal police with
> gases and gunfire. Then protesters faced a wave of represion by armed
> police officers and paramilitary which resulted in the deaths of three
> people, many injured individuals, more than 60 detained protesters and
> innocent bystanders and an unknown number of disappeared people. The
> numbers are increasing because violence has not ceased in the streets of
> Oaxaca.
> <p>
> People caught on the streets are looking for safe places to hide as the
> night promises more terror.
> Radio Universidad is asking its listeners to open their doors and allow
> people to hide. Now the PFP is entering people’s homes to ransack them
> and search for protesters. The APPO has made a plea for all national and
> international organizations in solidarity with the Oaxaca struggle to
> protest where they can against the brutality of the Mexican federal
> government in its support of Ulises Ruiz.</div>
