Starting today Planeta.com takes readers on a trip down memory line to one of the more problematic episodes in our peripatetic journey. A decade ago there were news-making social protests in Oaxaca, Mexico and we were there for the duration.
On the anniversary of the June 14, 2006 desalojo, we are asking friends and colleagues who lived or visited Oaxaca during this contentious period for their memories and take-away lessons.
We also debut a collection of archival photos taken by Ron Mader: 2006 Oaxaca
