Oaxaca Oppression
On June 12th, a strike by the Síndicato Nacionál Trajabadores Educativas (SNTE) teachers’ union, was entering its fourth week. As the strike dragged on, teachers started to solicit signatures to depose Ulises Ruiz Ortíz as governor of the state.

On June 14th at 4:30 a.m., some 3000 police and firemen began to violently remove the sit-in of 70,000 workers from Section 22 of the National Union of Education Workers (SNTE) with tear gas, smoke grenade, stun grenades and firearms.
