Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Guerrero Created in Chilpancingo

The Primary Demand is the Dismissal of the Secretary of Education

Chilpancingo, Guerrero, October 1, 2006: This weekend, at least 30 trade unions and social organizations formed the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Guerrero (APPG in its Spanish initials), whose members announced mobilizations set for this coming Monday.

The director of the Guerrero Education Workers State Coordinating Committee (CETEG), Felix Moreno Peralta, announced that the APPG will demand that Gov. Zeferino Torreblanca Galindo resolve various requests, including the dismissal of the Secretary of Education, Jose Luis Gonzalez de la Vega Otero, as well as the creation of 618 positions for graduates of teacher training colleges.

The APPG also requests the construction and remodeling of education infrastructure, mainly in the indigenous zones of la Montaña. Furthermore, the APPG will take up social and agricultural demands.

Moreno Peralta warned that the dismissal of the Secretary of Education in Guerrero will not be negotiable with the state authorities because the official has not been able to deal with the educational conflicts.

The members of more than thirty social organizations and trade unions called for a march this Monday in Chilpancingo to commemorate the 1968 student massacre in Tlatelolco.

Planned actions include sending an APPG contingent to Mexico City to welcome members of the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO), who are marching to the capital of the county.

The APPG is made up of two factions of the CETEG, university unions, the Guerrero University Student Federation, the Community Development Workshop, the Revolutionary Popular Front, and the Popular Defense Front. Also participating are: the indigenous organization Calpulli Tecuanichan, the Left Social Movement, the National Front of the Socialist Struggle, the Cuauhtémoc Indigenous Community, and the Guerrero State Coordinating Council of Graduates of Teacher Training Colleges, amongst other groups.
