On November 19th, women of Oaxaca marched to protest disrespect and harassment by the Federal Police.

These women demanded respect of their dignity and the freedom to walk through the Zocalo or town square without fear of harassment.

The women allege the PFP has been responsible not only for sexual harassment but in some cases assault. Until now we have not heard of any reprisals against Federal police forces.

At this time the PFP have been withdrawn from Oaxaca City, however Municipal Police have been placed in control of the Zocalo and it remains to be seen whether the conflict in Oaxaca has finally subsided.
