Señor gobernador Gabino Cue Monteagudo, el día 14 de marzo, en una acción a todas luces coordinada, fue secuestrado y desaparecido el Profesor Carlos René Román Salazar de la sección 22 y secuestrados cuatro regidores por la presidenta municipal de Putla de guerrero, Oaxaca, Isabel Gonzala Bello Chávez.
Como parte de la herencia del régimen de Ulises Ruiz, existen conflictos postelectorales que no han sido resueltos, particularmente en aquellos en que las fuerzas reaccionares de Oaxaca se encuentran interesadas en mantener, como es el caso de Putla de Guerrero, Oaxaca.

CODEP-APPO (Committee in Defense of the Rights of the People), with which we held an international women’s conference in March 2008, is again being targeted for repression. Taxi driver Sergio Martínez Vasquez, was murdered on 7 June, and odontologist Agustin Rios Cruz was beaten almost to death and is now in exile – both were members of CODEP’s state council. Others have been threatened, including exiled teachers Jaquelina López Almazán and Samuel Hernandez Morales.
