NYC Indymedia journalist Brad Will was shot and killed four years ago today while filming street protests during a popular uprising against the oligarchy that had controlled the impoverished Mexican state of Oaxaca for almost 80 years. Will’s killers have never been brought to justice despite overwhelming evidence implicating paramilitary gunmen who were filmed firing in Will’s direction moments before he was hit.
