Seventy thousand soldiers / occupy the state of Chiapas, driving indig- / enous people from their villages. Soldiers / are also on patrol against unrest in Oxaca / and Guerrero and U.S. taxpayers are foot- / ing the bill - $190 million in weapons to / Mexico since the people of Chiapas rose up / in 1994. Mexican human rights supporters / are jailed, and U.S. and other international / human rights observers are deported. / Stop Military Aid to Mexico / for more information call FireWorx at (415) 431-3594, www.fireworx.org".
