Por más de 13 horas, profesores de la Sección 22 del Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación (SNTE), pertenecientes a la región de Valles Centrales, bloquearon ayer los accesos del aeropuerto internacional de Santa Cruz Xoxocotlán de Oaxaca, como medida de presión para obtener respuestas satisfactorias en la mesa de diálogo con funcionarios del gobierno federal en la Ciudad de México.The protests are widespread. This from the LAHT and Tixtla in Guerrero
Twelve people were injured on Wednesday when Mexican federal police intervened to prevent a march by the families and supporters of 43 students kidnapped last September and presumed dead....See, the thing is that making one of the demands that the students be returned alive is well, simply not going to happen for obvious reasons. It is an unreasonable demand that cannot be met and condemns the process to failure. I guess protesters gotta protest. It looks like it going to be a rough week,
Meanwhile, around 300 people, including teachers and members of the unofficial community police force, blocked access to Tixtla as their comrades burned posters and leaflets touting candidates in Sunday’s elections.
The aim of the mobilization, a teacher identifying himself as Miguel Angel told Efe, was to demand the safe return of the 43 students and the repeal of the education overhaul enacted in 2013 by President Enrique Peña Nieto.
“We will impede the elections” to force the government to meet those demands, the teacher said.
The activists are determined that elections will not take place in Tixtla and they have a “well-planned” strategy to prevent the voting, Miguel Angel said.
