Do protests in Oaxaca complicate travel there?

The wife and I are considering a trip to Oaxaca. A couple we know who goes there every Christmas holiday (the husband is from Oaxaca) has warned us that travel there outside of the biggest holidays can be disrupted by protests, strikes, etc. that happen pretty regularly there - to the point that it can be very difficult just to get from the airport to the city (or vice versa). Just looking for a second opinion: are Oaxaca protests frequent and disruptive enough that it's kind of risky to plan a trip there not during a major holiday?

Opportunity for travel to Mexico + injury: go or no?

I have an RSI that, with aggressive rest, has finally begun to calm down. It doesn't take much walking to aggravate it right now. I have not been able to find wheelchair rentals in the areas we are traveling to. I can rent a wheelchair in my home city, but am not sure how the logistics of that would work out, hopping three flights. We are traveling with friends, and I am not willing to curb their activities.

Travel, behavior, safety recommendations for Oaxaca, Mexico

At the end of June, my sweetie and I will be traveling with a group tour/class in Oaxaca on prearranged flights, in prearranged lodging and mostly prearranged eating and activities for 2.5 weeks. There will be times we are at liberty, and we've already had the class' orientation, which focused, in part, on travel safety and habits. But I'm wondering if my fellow MeFites have more tips and ideas? [more inside]

Traveling to Oaxaca with a friend for a 2-4 week Spanish immersion program this June/July. We are looking for some advice about Spanish language programs, homestays/lodging, and transportation. We are having a very difficult time finding a good learning program—there are so many to choose from and we don't quite know what to look for and how to determine which ones are good. [more inside]
