Memorial de Agravios, Oaxaca, Mexico, 2006 brings together the work of 24 photographers who followed the social movement in Oaxaca during 2006 and 2007, along with essays by five Mexican writers translated into English, French, and Italian. A remarkable edition, conceived as an art book is a testimony to the difficult months in which citizens confronted the corrupt administration of Governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz, is an independent work which encourages critical reflection on the violence that dominated Oaxaca during 2006 and 2007.
David Jaramillo, photojournalist/activist from Mexico City, covered the movement, will discuss the trajectory of the movement, its current state, and present images of the uprising. Copies of Memorial de Agravios will be sold to benefit widows of this movement
