Demand an end to violent repression of teachers, strikers and other working people in Oaxaca.
PSC-CUNY writes: On Monday, November 13 at 4:30 PSC members are invited to join other unionists and teachers in a demonstration at the Mexican Consulate to demand an end to violent repression of teachers, strikers and other working people in Oaxaca. The escalating use of state violence against strikers and community groups began with violent repression against teachers, who went on strike last spring to win better salaries for themselves and better conditions for their students. Several Mexican teachers have been killed, and last week an American independent journalist was shot to death by forces against the community as he filmed the protest. Teachers and other academics throughout the Americas have expressed their outrage at the Mexican government. We join them in supporting fellow teachers and signaling that violent repression of striking teachers anywhere is an assault on the rights of teachers everywhere.
Date and Time: Monday, November 13 at 4:30pm
Place: Mexican Consulate – 27 East 39th St. between Park and Madison Aves.
