Rural teacher training colleges in Michoacán are training schools for guerrilla warfare and should be closed, business groups said Monday Aug. 8.

The president of the Business Coordinating Council, or CCE, in the state said it and several other organizations have written President Enrique Peña Nieto to ask that the normal schools, as they are called, be shut down.

“The normal school students are those who are causing the problems . . .” said Arcadio Méndez in an interview with the newspaper Reforma.

“We know there are guerrilla groups operating within the schools that are teaching the students. We know that in the first year they are taught guerrilla tactics.”

Méndez said that in June alone there were some 200 vehicles hijacked by students and members of the CNTE teachers’ union.

The stolen vehicles are being stored on land owned by the indigenous communities of Arantepacua, Turicuaro and Carapan, which are supportive of the dissident teachers’ movement.

The letter to the president was signed by the CCE and various organizations and chambers that have been affected by the normal school students’ mobilizations, highway blockades and vehicle thefts.

Among the stolen vehicles are three Pemex tanker trucks that were carrying 16,000 liters of fuel each. They were seized during a highway blockade and dispatched to Nahuatzen, where their contents were removed, said a state official
