OAXACA — Protesting teachers returned to the roads of Oaxaca Monday June 20 after eight people died when demonstrations turned violent over the weekend.
Wave of protests
Carrying a makeshift coffin the teachers brandished placards denouncing government repression.
Teachers and their supporters want police to leave the streets, arguing that they are protesting peacefully.
“We don’t want any more massacres. We don’t want repression. The police need to go back to their stations because Oaxaca is not at war. We’re protesting peacefully, expressing what we think is not good. This is why we demand negotiations where we can have a debate,” said Juan Garcia of the CNTE teachers union.
