IN BROAD DAYLIGHT: Moments before Brad Will was shot and killed October 27, 2006 in Santa Lucia del Camino, Oaxaca, Mexico, several local officials were filmed and photographed firing in the direction of Brad and anti-government protesters.

On October 27, 2006, Brad Will stood on Juarez Avenue in the municipality of Santa Lucia del Camino, Oaxaca, Mexico. He was filming a violent clash between armed, civilian-clad municipal police and officials and members of the Oaxaca Peoples’ Popular Assembly, or APPO.

On Thursday, July 25, activists, organizers, and collective members from across the city convened at the “2640 space” (St. John’s Church, 2640 St. Paul Street) to discuss the recent and much-publicized uncovering of a covert surveillance program initiated by the Maryland State Police to monitor anti-war and anti-death penalty protest groups. According to an ACLU of Maryland report, the program lasted 14 months, spanning 2005 and 2006.
