Teacher Strike Sparks Violence in Oaxaca, Mexico (Photos)
Mark in Mexico documents the results of an attempt to send in police to break up a teachers’ strike in Oaxaca, Mexico. He has an extensive firsthand account and several photos.
Reuters reports: “The teachers union said two of its members and a child were killed when police forced the teachers out of the main square in the city of Oaxaca, but state Governor Ulises Ruiz denied that on local radio.”
IndyMedia is terming it a “massacre.”
BBC reports that the teachers have agreed to a “temporary halt” to the protest and to enter into talks with the government.
