Sat Oct 18 2008Repression in Morelos as Teachers Rise Up Against Neo-Liberal Reforms
Sat Oct 18 2008State Repression Mirrors the Crackdown that Occurred in Oaxaca in 2006
For almost two months, the teachers union in the Mexican state of Morelos rose up against the "Alliance for Quality Education", a neo-liberal plan akin to "No Child Left Behind" that would pave the way to the privatization of education, among other things.
They were supported by the people of Morelos in their marches, encampments in public plazas, and blockades of interstate highways. On October 7, 8, and 9, the army and state and federal police were sent in to brutally smash the movement. This model is a mirror of the crackdown that occurred in Oaxaca in 2006 and has enraged teachers and the public across Mexico.
There is little to no information in English about the situation in Morelos, but there are photos that don't require translation. Photos
