FILM: "Un Poquito de Tanta Verdad" (a little bit of so much truth)

In the summer of 2006, a broad-based, non-violent, popular uprising exploded in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. With its origins in a public-sector workers' struggle (a teachers' strike), the uprising in Oaxaca was not unlike what we are currently seeing in Wisconsin and other states.

But it was the people’s use of the media that truly made history in Oaxaca.
