Binational Indigenous Front Meets in Oaxaca

New America Media, Photo Gallery, David Bacon Posted: Jun 24, 2008

SANTIAGO DE JUXTLAHUACA, Oaxaca, Mexico -- The assembly of the Indigenous Front of Binational Organizations (FIOB in its Spanish initials) met in the Mixteca region of Oaxaca, one of the poorest areas in Mexico, on May 31. A large percentage of the indigenous population of Oaxaca and other states has left to work in northern Mexico and in the United States.

The FIOB is a political organization of indigenous communities and migrants, with chapters in Mexico and the United States. It advocates for the rights of migrants, and for the right not to migrate -- for economic development which would enable people to stay home. Photos David Bacon
