Teachers Continue Mobilizations Due to Lack of Agreements over Educational Reform

Teachers Continue Mobilizations Due to Lack of Agreements over Educational Reform






In negotiations that lasted about seven hours, the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE) and the Government Secretariat (SG) resolved that “attaining justice for the people of Nochixtlan, Guerrero, is the priority of the dialogue”, according to La Jornada. The news outlet noted that the government will seek to carry out exhaustive investigations into the events in Nochixtlan on June 19, where nine civilians lost their lives in a confrontation between dissident teachers and state and federal police. The government committed itself to damage reparations for the families of the dead.

At the same time, both parties in the dialogue continue to formulate an agenda for discussion in which the CNTE proposed the repeal of educational reform as a central point. In a statement, Adelfo Alejandro Gomez, of Section 7 of Chiapas, declared that they want to find a “deep” solution, one that “is not passing nor momentary.” He warned that the mobilizations and blockades will not be stopped but they will contin13528977_260254724339779_1098098560336157652_nue with their plan of action so that the educational reform is reversed. For his part, the Secretary for the Interior, Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, reiterated that repeal of the reform is not the competency of his Secretariat: “it is not a theme that we can see to, it is a constitutional mandate, it is a reform made by the legislators, by the Constituent Assembly.” He also emphasized “co-responsibility”, referring to the necessity of both parties to reach an agreement, requesting the teachers to guarantee conditions of calm, stability, passage for supplies and ending the academic year.


Meanwhile, blockades continue on ten highways in Oaxaca and 14 in Chiapas, blocked by teachers, families and civil society that sympathizes with the CNTE to reject the police repression in Nochixtlan as well as the repeal of the educational reform. It should be highlighted that the first round of negotiations took place after a month of teachers’ protests against the government refusal to establish communication with the teachers, and that this only happened after the death of nine people in the blockade in Oaxaca. No date has been announced to resume the negotiations for the moment.


On another note, Roberto Paciencia Cruz, unjustly imprisoned in in the State Centre for Social Reinsertion for Prisoners (CERSS) No. 5 in San Crsitobal de Las Casas, observed two days of fasting and prayer in solidarity with the CNTE. In a public letter, the adherent to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), wrote that “such a painful event as occurred in Oaxaca that our brothers lost their lives (sic)” motivated him to sympathize with the teachers “who have been fighting against the educational reform for more than a month.” He also demanded that the President of the Republic, Enrique Peña Nieto, “exhort the Governor of Veracruz, Javier Duarte de Ochoa, for the freedom of compañero Alejandro Diaz Santiz”, an organized prisoner who has been imprisoned for 17 years and would have the right to partial remission of his sentence to be paroled.

Roberto Paciencia Writes to Alejandro Diaz

Unjustly imprisoned Roberto Paciencia Cruz, deprived of his freedom three years ago, wrote a letter to Alejandro Diaz Santiz, who has been imprisoned for 17 years. They met in the State Centre for Social Reinsertion for Prisoners (CERSS) No. 5 in San Cristobal de Las Casas, the prison where they began awareness and denouncement processes against the human rights violations against the prison population. Paciencia Cruz sent greetings to Diaz Santiz, who was sent to the State Prison No. 5 of the Federal Centre for Social Re-adaptation (Cefereso) in Villa Comaltitlan, Tapachula, Chiapas. Paciencia wrote, “Compa, we hope that you don’t feel alone; remember that your ‘ compañeros’ are on your case, we know that you have suffered a lot these 17 years, that injustice has deprived you of your freedom, the authorities have never been able to solve your case (sic).”

It should be remembered that Roberto Paciencia Cruz was imprisoned in August 2013 and has been in captivity since, although he has not been sentenced. Arrested without warrant and tortured in the following hours he recently became an adherent to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN). For his part, Alejandro Diaz Santiz was deprived of his freedom in 1999, “at the moment of his arrest he  did not have a translator and he was accused of a crime he did not commit”, according to his attorney Lionel Rivero, as well as not having the economic resources for an adequate defence. Alejandro joined the Sixth and organized the prisoners’ collective “Sympathizers of the Voice of Amate” (Solidarios de la Voz del Amate). Nine months later, he was transferred to a maximum security prison even though his crime was not in federal jurisdiction, which was interpreted by the “No Estamos Todxs Workgroup” (GTNET) as “political revenge of the bad government against Alejandro, punished for supporting and raising awareness of the other prisoners and for refusing to be silent about the abuses against detained persons.” According to declarations of Alejandro’s relatives, he is isolated and has limited visits.

The letter from Paciencia for Diaz Santiz ended with an encouraging sentence: “keep your spirits up, compa, we will stay standing until we get our freedom and freedom for all our brother and sister prisoners in the country.”

Indigenous Women Seek Legal Protection for Cultural Heritage

Indigenous Women Seek Legal Protection for Cultural Heritage

Weavers of traditional ancestral designs argue the Guatemalan government has a responsibility to protect their Mayan culture from outside exploitation.

Indigenous women in Guatemala are fighting for collective intellectual property rights over their traditional Mayan textiles in the face of a lack of government will to protect the cultural heritage that represents thousands of years of Indigenous community resistance, Mayan organizations argued in court on Tuesday.

“What we want is a law to protect our textiles because it is something that is ours, we learned from our grandparents how to weave,” said Kaqchikel weaver Marta Puac, one of dozens of women from different communities who went to the Constitutional Court in Guatemala City on Tuesday in support of the initiative.

The case, led by a group of women from the community of San Juan Sacatepequez northwest of Guatemala City—with the support of an association of Mayan lawyers—calls on the court to push Congress to introduce new laws specifically aimed at protecting Mayan cultural patrimony and and intellectual property.

Puac explained that the women fear that in the future their textiles could be subject to a patent from outside their community that would effectively rob Mayan people of their designs and culture. “We’re defending our identity,” she said.

In the hearing, representative Angelina Aspuac argued that the Guatemalan government uses Mayan culture as a selling point for tourism without taking steps to protect the communities’ collective rights over what she describes as a kind of living culture. She also argued that there is a question of labor rights at stake since it is Indigenous women who weave the iconic textiles while others reap the majority of the economic benefits.

Another Indigenous activist, Josefina Con Cuc, explained that the case seeks a “guarantee” that Mayan people can continue carrying forward the cultural heritage of their designs to future generations.

“The art of weaving is a form of ancestral knowledge that woman have preserved for many years,” she said. “And it is part of the knowledge that continues to be threatened and for which we are resisting.”

According to the women behind the initiatives, the lack of state action to recognize collective rights to traditional textiles goes hand-in-hand with other threats to their cultural protection, including increasing industrial production, commercialization of culture and unfair market access for Indigenous women.

The women hope the case will also help them increase their incomes and see more equality in labor relations involving intermediaries, who may be less able to exploit their work with intellectual property rights in place.

Banners in support of the ongoing case in court Tuesday included signs reading “we are the daughters of grandmothers who will not die, they will live on through the universe of our textiles.”

Network for Peace Rejects Violence and Repression of Teachers and Calls for Dialogue

Network for Peace Rejects Violence and Repression of Teachers and Calls for Dialogue




San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, June 21, 2016

The member organizations of Network for Peace (Red por la Paz) express our indignation over the acts of repression that the Mexican State has carried out, through the police forces, against the teachers’ movement and civil society which has expressed its rejection in recent weeks of the educational reform passed in 2013. It has been repeatedly pointed out that the educational reform promoted by Enrique Peña Nieto, passed by the Congress of the Union and the congresses of the federal states, as well as permitting the gradual privatization of public education, is a labour reform that breaks with the principle of stable employment and the right to form a trade union.

The mobilizations of protest and rejection that have been organized by sections seven and 22 of the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE) and the National Union of Education Workers (SNTE) in Chiapas, Oaxaca, Guerrero, Michoacan, among others, have been repressed through the excessive use of public force, extended to the sympathetic population or simply passers-by in the places where the protests were happening.

In Chiapas, Guerrero and Oaxaca, the conflict has resulted in murders of teachers and civilians as well as hundreds of wounded and dozens of people arrested.

In this context, the risk of an escalation of repressive and indiscriminate violence, on the part of the State, in all of the states where the teachers’ movement has protested with the support of civil society (Oaxaca, Tabasco, Chiapas, Michoacan, Guerrero, among others) is very high and against this, of a popular response that, tired of attacks and deaths, could respond with defensive violence. Against this context of violence in which several violations of human rights have occurred, and also due to the recurring climate of impunity, we call for national and international solidarity to show, in writing to the President of the Republic, its rejection of excessive use of force against the teachers’ movement and against civil society.

We demand from Enrique Peña Nieto:

  • Public and respectful dialogue that genuinely addresses and presents solutions to the just demands of the teachers’ union.
  • An end to the repression and criminalization of the teachers’ union.

Community radio journalist and activist killed by police in Oaxaca‏



Igavec Noticias
June 26, 2016

HUAJUAPAN DE LEÓN- Salvador Olmo García, a 27-year old vendor, community journalist, activist, defender of lands, vocalist and pioneer of the anarko-punk movement in Huajuapan, was found seriously injured this Sunday morning in the Las Huertas neighborhood of the city.

Around 4:40 this morning, rescue workers of the National Emergency Commission (CNE) were alerted by local police agents that that there was a seriously wounded person at an unnumbered building on Naranjos Street, so Ambulance 06 of District 020 was immediately dispatched to the spot.

When the paramedics arrived, they saw someone lying by the side of the road. They immediately gave him first aid and put him on a stretcher.

When they noted that he had serious wounds on his arms, legs, head and torso, they decided to take him to the Emergency Room at the Pilar Sánchez Villavicencio General Hospital of Huajuapan, so he could get the necessary medical care.

After trying for several minutes to save his life, however, the medics reported that Chava, as he was known by his family and friends, had breathed his last due to the presence and accumulation of outdoor or pulmonary air in the chest cavity (pneumothorax), a fracture of the right arm and a broken nose.

After the death of Salvador, who was also a reporter for the Tuun Ñuu Savi community radio, fellow broadcasters accused local police agents of being both the perpetrators and the masterminds of this crime. They said that Chava had previously been arrested and then run over by an official police vehicle.

The reporters also demanded a speedy investigation to determine exactly what happened and punishment for the responsible parties. They warned that if these demands are not met, alternative measures will be taken to see that justice is done for this and other acts that they consider fascist and oppressive by uniformed policemen.

Salvador Olmo García had been struggling for 15 years in defense of Mixteca lands and communities and against the exploitation of natural resources and the granting of concessions to foreign mining companies by government authorities.

After this terrible attack, dozens of friends, acquaintances and family members gathered at the Tuun Ñuu Savi radio station to show their support and demand that the responsible parties be punished.

“Members of the Huajuapan society, we hope you understand what they did to our comrade. We don’t want to incite violence, but we are outraged about this attack and we want justice. Chava always struggled for equality. He was a productive, supportive person in the society, and as an anarchist, always protected others around him.”

“He was a good man with the soul of a child, with his black t-shirts, dreadlocks and boots. This was the only space he found where he could freely grow and develop,” said one of the activists who was a close comrade of Salvador’s.

Protests in Chiapas against the repression in Nochixtlán

With Roadblocks, Marches, Processions, Prayers and Two Federal Police Detained, They Protest the Repression in Nochixtlán


2016-06-20-photo-00000230-600x337-1Indigenous people detain Federal Police in Huixtán, Chiapas.


Excerpt from an article in Chiapas Paralelo by Isaín Mandujano

June 21, 2016

With roadblocks, public pronouncements, processions and religious prayers, as well as the retention of two Federal Police, Indigenous peoples, campesinos, parents and teachers from Chiapas demanded a stop to the repression in Oaxaca and punishment of those responsible for the crimes committed during the eviction in Nochixtlán.

Teachers from Sections 7 and 40 of the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE) of the National Union of Education Workers (SNTE), blocked the two principal exits from Tuxtla: to Mexico City and to Los Altos of Chiapas.

From 9 o’clock in the morning to 6 o’clock in the evening, dissidents blocked accesses to the city. The C4 security system reported that a truck of the Bimbo Company was looted at Tuxtla’s western exit, where the teachers maintained a roadblock. Although it is not affirmed that those who looted the truck were teachers, a crowd was seen unloading boxes of bread.

At both roadblocks, the teachers distributed flyers repudiating the repression of the federal forces that left six dissidents dead and 21 Federales injured.

Federal Police detained in Huixtán

At the same time as this roadblock, two Federal Police agents that were found near the municipio of Huixtán were detained and tied up by indigenous Tsotsils who maintain a roadblock in solidarity with the teachers of Chiapas and Oaxaca. In the morning, the indigenous established the blockade on the San Cristóbal de las Casas-Palenque highway at the Huixtán location.

Meanwhile, the indigenous residents of Huixtán obliged the federal agents to speak with their superiors in Tuxtla Gutiérrez via telephone. They ordered them to tell their commanders that if they repressed the teachers in their roadblocks or in any other social movement, they would be killed and burned.

In the state capital, indigenous peoples from the parishes of Tila, Palenque, Salto de Agua, Tumbalá, Huixtán and other municipios marched in a procession to demonstrate their support for the teachers. They marched for several kilometres to the central plaza, where the teachers’ occupation has been camped since May 15.

Marcelo Pérez Pérez, the parish priest of Simojovel, called to the police: “Señor police, you must not obey an order given by the government to kill people, because above all, God’s commandment must reign: Thou shall not kill. And if you obey such an order from the government, God asks you: Where is your brother? What have you done? Your brother’s blood cries out and his cry comes to me from the earth.”

Later, he directed his word to president Peña Nieto: “You are the authority and your authority is for serving, not for repressing, much less for killing. Your obligation is to protect Mexicans. A law implemented with bullets is a law that is sinking.”

Two days earlier

On June 19, traditional dancers from the Chiapas city of Ocozocoautla (Coitecos) joined the teachers in another cultural march.

The mayor-elect denounces terror in Nochixtlán, Oaxaca, after the brutal eviction

The mayor-elect denounces terror in Nochixtlán, Oaxaca, after the brutal eviction




NOCHIXTLAN, OAXACA, June 19, 2016.- CNTE teachers supported by citizens were attacked by Federal Police who sought to remove a highway blockade that the teachers had maintained for days as part of their fight against the Education Reform. 12 people are now reported dead.



By: Gabriela Romero Sánchez

Almost one week after the eviction of the Section 22 teachers belonging to the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE) by the Federal Police, residents of Nochixtlán, Oaxaca, are afraid to go into the streets and afraid of being repressed again after being considered unstable and rebel people by the federal government, narrates the municipal president elect of Nochixtlán, Rubén Alcides.

“On Thursday, a helicopter without registration letters to identify it, started to fly very low; it motivated people going about their daily activities to run and hide,” he said.

He comments that there are still people with bullet wounds going to private doctors’ offices for medical attention. “No one wants to say their name, because they think that the federal government will come to capture them for having participated in the protest.”

Alcides and a group of nine neighbours from the municipal capital resorted to federal Deputy Jesús Valencia to look for support from different bodies, among them the Government of Mexico City (now a state), for the reconstruction of their town, since, they assure, there is no rapprochement on the part of the federal government.

“We’re talking about people who are experiencing a tremendous fear, who have bullet wounds,” he describes.

He describes how the eviction from the federal highway began around 6 o’clock in the morning and that a group of teachers and parents were there, “let’s say a reduced number,” but it was also market day, therefore after initiating the operation many people came out to support a friend or parent.

They refute the version of the authorities that assert that members of the federal police were not carrying arms: “They were indeed armed. It was a totally unequal attack, underhand and above all disproportionate,” the municipal president elect summarizes.

Alcides denies that the local priest had incited violence; on the contrary, he asserts, he gave space in his parish church for attending to the injured without importance to whether they were civilians or federal police; while at the hospital only the police were received.

A doctor in the group, who also aided in the parish that day and asked for anonymity out of fear, intervenes: “There was no surgical material for attending to the injured, around 30 people went there, of which at least 10 had bullet wounds. How can they say that they were rubber bullets when they had entry and exit orifices in their thorax and in their arms or legs!”

He indicates that around 10 o’clock in the morning they asked permission to use the two ambulances that exist in Nochixtlán, without obtaining an answer. “People started to get angry over that, they wanted to move the injured to a hospital; then, they set fire to the municipal presidency to get them out.”

The tension increased, he said, when they heard that there was one death. “People came out of their houses to support their sons, brothers, fathers. They were saying: ‘they are killing us!’”

He rejects that there were individuals unrelated to the community in the town, “we see each other every day; some of them go to my doctor’s office.”

Alcides points out that on assuming the office he will receive a destroyed town, with the municipal palace (City Hall) and the Civilian Registry burned, without services. Above all “with intense pain in the population that feels hatred towards the federal and state governments. They arrested 19 people from the town when they were digging a tomb for a relative, their crime was carrying a pick and shovel.”

The municipal president elect urges the competent authorities to indemnify the families of the people that died: “it’s people that live in extreme poverty.” He asks for resources for the reconstruction of the damaged public buildings: “we are without legal identity, they don’t issue birth and death records.” And he asked to activate job sources.

In the afternoon the Secretary of Mobility, Héctor Serrano Cortés, attended to the group of people on behalf of the Mexico City Government. After listening to them he offered to support them with medications and food.

Translated by Scott Campbell

Our rage cannot be contained by police bullets, by the State’s jails, by the media’s lies. Our dead will not be forgotten, their combative spirit has spread so that we may take justice into our hands.

Nochixtlán and Oaxaca resisted as the Isthmus region has resisted, demonstrating to the powerful that we don’t fear them, that we will confront them, we will defeat them; in the cold Mixteca the frontline has not been neglected. In spite of the pain that invades the people, they know the worst way to remember those who died in battle is to abandon the war.

To remove a blockade and its barricades incites them to place more closures, more people in the avenues, highways, towns and in the struggle. The regions remain alert, the solidarity shows us that the struggle lives. The attempted State occupation by federal forces only heightens the tension and revives the rebellion.

The State sends winks and nods to the teachers union after the massacre; the media applauds, we condemn it. We don’t trust in any dialogue with the authorities, especially now that the CNTE has managed to agree to one, after a brutal massacre of people who acted in solidarity with them and supported them. The blood of our dead cannot be negotiated with for reform, not even for the removal of politicians from ministries and governments.

Nor will we allow for audacious politicians to hop on the tragedy. The resignations, the appearances, the support from these individuals – now – does not remove the betrayals already committed and those that they surely have planned. Organization by community, neighbourhood, groups and relationships is necessary in order to block the opportunism and leadership that those sick from power so crave.

The battle against the State should happen on all fronts. The street is ours but we have to win on the media and ideological fronts, to strengthen the resistance, to organize the rage, to spread and expand the revolt is the way; and not just in Oaxaca – which is filled with marches, barricades and protests – but elsewhere. Conflict is necessary, the placid peace of the State must be interrupted.

The siege by federal forces gathered in several positions should be acknowledged, the arrival of more reinforcements is a reality and the objective is clear: the pacification by force of the Oaxacan people. But we will not give up, we have learned that repression should not provoke fear, to the contrary it should nourish our highest ideal: freedom.

The Hour of the Police 4

From the Cat-Dog’s spoiler notebook

June 2016

Here’s the doubt: what would be the most appropriate comparison for that sad and mediocre overseer who aspires to be a policeman?

Aurelio Donald Nuño Trump?

Aurelio Ramsay Nuño Bolton?

We think that given his thirst for blood and his cowardice, the latter fits him best.

And, just like in the television series “Game of Thrones,” where Ramsay Bolton is devoured by the dogs that he before used to attack others, the paid media that have used Nuño to slander, threaten, and attack the teachers in resistance and the communities and organizations in solidarity, will feed on him when he falls.

It could very well be said to him tomorrow:

“Your words will disappear.

Your house will disappear

Your name will disappear

All memory of you will disappear.”

To him and the entire system he serves.

Time will tell.



Growing Support for Teachers at Home and Abroad

Growing Support for Teachers at Home and Abroad



Outside the Mexican Embassy in London



In support of the struggle that thousands of members of the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE) carry on, and following the most recent repressive actions against them by federal forces on June 19 last in the Oaxaca State, many civil society organizations expressed their solidarity with the teachers, demanding a peaceful solution to the conflict from the state and federal governments.

In Chiapas, Believing People parishes called a pilgrimage on June 20 in Tuxtla Gutierrez. They showed their support for the teachers and repudiated the violent acts that occurred in Nochixtlán, Oaxaca, which left a toll of at least 11 people dead in altercations with the police. In a statement they explained that, “with such events we cannot remain on the sidelines, as a church we will always be on the side of the oppressed and we will raise our prophetic voice. The reforms are the expression of a new ‘Porfiariato’. We must struggle, we shouldn’t be conformists or slaves.” Father Marcelo from Simojovel parish extended an invitation to a mega-pilgrimage in support of the teachers for July 1 next with around thirteen parishes from the diocese of San Cristobal.

Another show of support and solidarity came from the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN). In a communiqué titled “Notes on the War Against the Teachers in Resistance (The Hour of the Police 3)”, they noted that, “There are more and more families helping the teachers, donating support for their trips and marches, becoming anxious when they are attacked, offering food, drink, and refuge.” They also pointed out the lack of educational arguments of the Secretary for Education, Aurelio Nuño Mayer, and the violence employed in repression of the mobilizations. Later, together with the National Indigenous Congress (CNI), they published another communiqué. Titled “FROM THE STORM”, both organizations expressed their repudiation of “the repressive escalation with which they intend to impose throughout the country the neoliberal capitalist reform that they call ‘educational’”. They highlighted that the resistance movement against this reform has become a mirror for more and more people, demanding an end to repression against the teachers in struggle and the immediate and unconditional release of “ALL political prisoners.” Their communiqué closed with an invitation to “all those peoples of the countryside and the cities to be attentive and sympathetic to the teachers’ struggle, to organize ourselves autonomously to be informed and alert facing this storm which falls on all.”

On a national level, Peace Brigades International (PBI) expressed their concern to state and federal authorities and the diplomatic corps over the deterioration of the situation. In a public announcement on June 20, they urged the Mexican authorities to respect the right to protest, to favour dialogue with the teachers and guarantee the integrity of teachers and defenders. On another note, in many states civil society, students, families and health workers are joining the mobilizations. Among others, in Oaxaca de Juarez, Oaxaca State, the artistic community organized a cultural event called “Cultural Barricade”, in which hundreds of artists from Mexico and other parts of the world participated on June 20, raising their voices to repudiate the repression.

On an international level, Amnesty International reminded the authorities that they have an obligation to control public order and take measures to prevent, investigate and sanction those responsible for acts of violence. Due to the events of recent days, the National Commission for Human Rights (CNDH) reinforced its presence in Oaxaca as well as in Tabasco, Chiapas, Guerrero and Michoacan, states which have also witnessed similar conflicts. The Inter-American Commission for Human Rights (CIDH) strongly condemned the serious acts of violence reported in Oaxaca State and called on the State to promote a process of dialogue in the framework of educational reform that allows the search for a solution in the context of a democratic society with full respect for human rights. Apart from the organizations mentioned, there were many actions on the part of civil society. Some examples are sit-ins and vigils organized in several cities in France, Spain, Germany, the United Kingdom, Ecuador, Argentina, and Brazil, among others, in rejection of the repressive events in Mexico.

It is worth mentioning that on July 22 there were negotiations between the CNTE and the Interior Secretary. According to the CNTE, this dialogue, obtained thanks to the broad popular mobilization, did not result in concrete agreements but they were able to table three themes: “repeal of the badly named educational reform; a route for the transformation of education; and measures for the distention and revision of the consequences of the imposition of the administrative labour reform.” A second round of dialogue is expected next week. It is also noteworthy that the 23 people arrested in Nochixtlan have been released.

San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas, México
June 21, 2016


On June 19, elements of the police in the state of Oaxaca violently repressed teachers and organized civil society in opposition of the education reform of the government of Enrique Peña Nieto. Such events caused the death of at least six people, the apprehension and/or disappearance of 22, and 45 left with gunshot wounds between Nochixtlán and Hacienda Blanca. Their medical attention was not guaranteed, to which the general population responded by building “attention centers” to serve and treat those wounded. In the last few days, planes of the Federal Police and the Gendarmerie have arrived to the capital of the state.

Such event is the most recent within the escalating context of the repressive violence in all of the entities where the teachers’ movement has manifested with the support of the civil society (Oaxaca, Tabasco, Chiapas, Michoacan, Guerrero, among others) in the last few weeks. All of these mobilizations have been in demand for a dialogue with the federal government about the reform, which has maintained a stern stance of not wanting to modify such reform, and has threatened with the immediate cessation of those on strike.

Background History:

In 2013, the federal government approved the education reform, included in the packet of reforms derived from the “Pact for Mexico” -an agreement between principal political parties planting the construction of a society with human rights and liberties, economic growth, security, justice, transparency, combat of corruption, and democratic governance-. Since its announcement from the President of the Republic, Enrique Peña Nieto, the education reform caused inconformity between the teachers. It was presented by the government as an improvement in the education system from the evaluation of teachers; aimed to promote the autonomy of the families of students in terms of maintenance of the schools in practice, involving the covering of expenses of school maintenance. It was interpreted by a wide sector of teachers as a labor reform -more so than educational content- that would permit selective dismissals and the beginning of the privatization of education in the country.

As a result, dissident teachers organized multiple protests in several states in search for a dialogue with the federal government for the repeal of the reform. Various of the mobilizations were repressed by police forces, causing the death of three teachers (one from Chiapas and two from Guerrero in 2015 and 2016).

Organizations of the civil society of Oaxaca denounced the “criminalization of teachers”, with examples such as “mass media campaigns of defamation”, or the detention of at least 75 people -among which are several leaders of the movement-, who find themselves “in a situation of political imprisonment”. The Working Group on Arbitrary Detention of the United Nations assessed that several of the arrests were directed against human rights defenders and they were carried out arbitrarily. Furthermore, some of those arrested were transported to high security prisons intended for severe federal crimes.

The civil society of Oaxaca rejected the dozens of arrest warrants issued to members of the Section 22 of the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE, in its Spanish acronyms) -known for demanding the cancellation of the education reform and for being a prominent part of the Oaxacan social movement-, looking to “dismantle the movement”. Before this situation, various rapporteurs of the United Nations emitted “urgent phone calls to Mexican authorities” due to the human rights violations, mainly for arrests without warrants, nor search warrants, and for the use of torture.

Since May 15 of this year, the teachers in opposition declared a labour strike, closing a large part of schools, with percentages above 95% in the states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. Adding to the strike, teachers organized marches, blocked roads, held encampments and symbolic “sit-ins” of city councils and radio stations, among other actions, which have received growing support from the parents of the families of students, as well as the general population. The teachers currently maintain an encampment in the downtown center of the city of Oaxaca de Juárez, which is being guarded by barricades in the historic center of town and by road blockades of strategic points to prevent the entry of police forces.

The Civil Society of Oaxaca published an Urgent Action reporting a Humanitarian Alert issue “for State armed civilian attacks”. They requested the removal of governmental forces and repression against teachers and the general population, a space for dialogue, immediate medical attention, a stop to the criminalization of the teachers, the cancellation of the arrest warrants, the liberation of those detained, as well as the punishment of those responsible of the human rights violations.

As the International Service for Peace (SIPAZ), we are highly concerned due to the human rights violations in the context of the teachers’ mobilizations, which is why we invite you all to sign the Urgent Action from the Civil Society of Oaxaca in the web-page of the All Rights for All Network (Red TdT, in its Spanish acronym).

We also assess that the situation of high tension is not only present in Oaxaca, but in Chiapas as well, to which we invite the national and international society remain attentive and aware of the events in the state.

The Battle of Oaxaca

The Battle of Oaxaca



Gustavo Esteva

La Jornada, 20th June 2016
It isn’t simply another of the many Oaxaca wars. It is part of a much deeper and wider war, which isn’t even contained in the national territory. But the battle being waged in Oaxaca has special significance in that war, in the great war.

It is a long announced battle. In Oaxaca it was known that they were postponing many aspects of the ongoing confrontation until after the elections. It was clear that after the elections the blows, provocations, final assault would worsen. They began preparations everywhere.

On June 14, all Oaxaca was remembering. It was a remembrance against the forgetting: today’s scenario seemed to be a faithful mirror of 10 years ago. We were seeing a rerun of the same movie: the teacher mobilization, the sit-in the zócalo, the marches, the teachers’ demands, a fierce media campaign … And the authorities again betting, as then, on Section 22 getting exhausted; on growing citizen irritation; on the people’s fear of violence and loss of income and jobs.

The June 14 march that arrived at Oaxaca City’s zócalo expressed residual experience. For nearly 10 hours, alongside the teachers in their encampment, many diverse sectors creatively expressed the ways in which today memory inspires action.

The Espacio Civil, Civil Space, is a new arrangement of very different kinds of groups and organizations, who are retaking the experience of 2006 to give it new forms. Their declaration “Ten Years Building New Roads” was formulated in the framework of government violence “to impose the bad so-called education reform” and in the context of “an exemplary teacher and popular resistance to the imminent risk that the black repressive night we lived through on the November 25, 2006, might return.”

Oaxaca’s civil society spoke out with conviction for the necessity of learning from 2006, “not only to close a cycle that left us full of wounds and pains but to open new stages of struggle that we might not make the same mistakes and that we might absorb the positive teachings of the movement.

“Today many people are struggling to defend their territory against mining, windfarms, and for respect of their autonomy and their uses and customs, their culture, for the care of their natural resources, their forests, the water and biodiversity. Today we consider it necessary to further the construction of a common agenda that might unify teachers, neighbourhoods, pueblos, young people, women, adults in fullness, and all those of us who aspire to and are willing to struggle for Oaxaca and a better Mexico.”

At the start of the Day of Reflection 2006-2016Espacio Civil issued a call to strengthen the teachers’ movement and the struggles of neighbourhoods, communities and pueblos to bring down the labour reform disguised as educational reform and the structural reforms and to stop the repression. Only together, it was emphasized, “will we achieve the release of our political prisoners, the safe return of our disappeared, and that a long night of pain and repression against the teachers and neighbourhoods and pueblos of Oaxaca might not be repeated.”



On that day they began to blockade the roads. In Nochixtlán and on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, the people took to the street to close passage to truckloads of militarized police heading to Oaxaca City. Aircraft began arriving at the Oaxaca Airport. Many thousands of people, from all sectors of society, encouraged and supported the blockades, and they began to weave social solidarity.

Human Rights Groups Issue Communiqué

On Saturday afternoon, the Tepeyac Human Rights Centre of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, and the Network of Community Defenders of the Peoples of Oaxaca issued a communiqué in which they considered absurd and senseless the federal government’s response to social protest. They argued that the escalation of violence exhibits a political class that seeks to perpetuate itself

“in the logic of power and confrontation, rather than promoting opportunities for dialogue that might open channels to this fractured democracy.”

At the same time, they appreciated the wisdom of women and men of the pueblos, groups and emerging groups in

“proposing a creative resistance, pondering the meaning of life and building a just society.”

Oaxaca is burning. There is clear awareness of the moment of danger. Therefore, from every corner, an appeal is sent out today for courage—both the courage that expresses moral outrage shared by a growing number of people and the courage that means valour, integrity and the ability to walk with dignity and clarity in these dark times. The battle has just begun.

Mexican police brutally attack Oaxaca’s striking teachers

Mexican police brutally attack Oaxaca’s striking teachers




Ten years after the Oaxaca Commune of 2006, teachers in the Mexican state are back on the barricades — and once again the state responds with brute force.

Scott Campbell

In a statement released on Friday, June 17, the Zapatistas posed the following questions regarding the ongoing national teachers’ strike in Mexico:

They have beaten them, gassed them, imprisoned them, threatened them, fired them unjustly, slandered them, and declared a de facto state-of-siege in Mexico City. What’s next? Will they disappear them? Will they murder them? Seriously? The ‘education’ reform will be born upon the blood and cadavers of the teachers?

On Sunday, June 19, the state answered these questions with an emphatic “Yes”. The response came in the form of machine-gun fire from Federal Police directed at teachers and residents defending a highway blockade in Nochixtlán, a town in the southern state of Oaxaca and roughly 80 kilometres northwest of the capital city of that state, also called Oaxaca.

Initially, the Oaxaca Ministry of Public Security claimed that the Federal Police were unarmed and “not even carrying batons”. After ample visual evidence and a mounting body count to the contrary, the state admitted federal police opened fire on the blockade, killing six. Meanwhile, medics in Nochixtlán released a list of eight killed, 45 wounded and 22 disappeared. On Monday, the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE), the teachers’ union leading the strike, said ten were killed on Sunday, including nine at Nochixtlán.

Teachers belonging to the CNTE, a more radical faction of about 200,000 inside of the 1.3 million-strong National Union of Education Workers (SNTE), the largest union in Latin America, have been on indefinite strike since May 15. Their primary demand is the repeal of the “Educational Reform” initiated by Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in 2013.

A neoliberal plan based on a 2008 agreement between Mexico and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the reform seeks to standardize and privatize Mexico’s public education system, as well as weaken the power of the teachers’ union. The teachers are also demanding more investment in education, freedom for all political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, truth and justice for the 43 disappeared students from Ayotzinapa, and an end to neoliberal structural reforms in general.

The state has refused to even talk to the union, instead deploying thousands of federal police and gendarmerie to areas where the strike is strongest — primarily Oaxaca, Chiapas, Michoacán and Mexico City, though also in states such as Guerrero, Tabasco and Veracruz.

A late night attack on June 11 against a teachers’ encampment blockading the Oaxaca State Institute of Public Education (IEEPO) by more than 1,000 police led to teachers and residents quickly mobilizing and establishing barricades and highway blockades in the early morning hours of June 12. Also on Saturday, the top two leaders of the CNTE’s Oaxacan branch, Section 22, were arrested in Oaxaca and Mexico City, and 24 arrest warrants issued for others in leadership positions.

The Nochixtlán blockade was one of those erected on June 12 and for a week had been successful in preventing hundreds of federal forces from reaching the city of Oaxaca. Dozens of highway blockades were in place by June 14, the day that tens of thousands came out to the streets to commemorate the ten-year anniversary of the beginning of the five-month-long 2006 rebellion.

The CNTE controlled 37 critical spots on highways throughout the state, blockaded in part with 50 expropriated tanker trucks. The blockades were so effective that ADO, a major first-class bus line, indefinitely cancelled all trips from Mexico City to Oaxaca and federal police began flying reinforcements into airports in the city of Oaxaca, Huatulco (on the coast), and Ciudad Ixtepec (on the Isthmus).

On Sunday morning, the federal and state police attack on the people and teachers of Oaxaca began in earnest. Nochixtlán defended its blockade against a four-hour police assault, resulting in the previously mentioned nine deaths. Police took over the local hospital and forbid entry to anyone not wearing a uniform. The wounded demonstrators were treated in churches and schools, likely resulting in more deaths due to lack of necessary treatment.

The next police attack on Sunday occurred at the blockade in Hacienda Blanca, 11 kilometers north of the city of Oaxaca. There police fired tear gas from helicopters, including into the school being used as a makeshift medical center, and there were reports of live ammunition being fired.

After breaking the blockade, they began going door-to-door looking for people in hiding. The police advanced into the municipal boundaries of Oaxaca and heavy clashes occurred in the Viguera neighborhood at the Juárez Monument. Police again used live ammunition, wounding a young man who later died of his wounds, making him the tenth fatality of the day. Another death occurred near the blockade in Juchitán, in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, when a reporter covering the protests was shot by “unknown subjects” in circumstances that remain unclear.

Sunday night, police began cutting power to various sections of the city and public transit was suspended, raising fears that federal and state forces would attempt to take the city and the teachers’ encampment in the main square (the Zócalo). As of this writing, such an attack has not occurred and around 30 highway blockades remain in place in Oaxaca, along with barricades in the historic city center. Police and gendarmerie did attack a blockade in Salina Cruz, a major port city, but it was successfully defended by teachers and residents.

Monday saw at least 40,000 people march in Oaxaca to protest Sunday’s state violence. Eighty-one civil society groups issued a “humanitarian alert due to the armed State attack on a civilian population.” Of note is that none of those killed on Sunday were teachers. Oaxaca Governor Gabino Cué claimed that teachers are in the minority on the blockades. This was an attempt on his part to delegitimize the struggle, but it instead speaks to the growing solidarity sparked by the teachers’ strike.



Urgent Action: Civil Society of Oaxaca emits humanitarian alert due to armed attack of the State against civilians

Filed under: Repression, Uncategorized — Tags: , — dorsetchiapassolidarity @ 6:16 am







Today, June 19th, we have been witnesses of the extremely violent actions of the Mexican State repressing the teachers and the organized civil society in resistance in different areas of the State of Oaxaca including the Istmus of Tehuantepec, Nochixtlán and the city of Oaxaca.

As a result of the excessive use of force, at least six persons have lost their lives and dozens have been injured and arrested. At this moment there is no information about the whereabouts of the arrested persons neither there is an exact total number of injured and killed persons. Medical attention was not guaranteed and civil society had to create points of emergency medical attention to injured persons without being able to cope with the demand.

There are happening particularly violent actions in the city of Oaxaca tonight. We have witnessed the arrival of a large number of airplanes of the Federal Police and the Gendarmerie in the city throughout the day as well as we witness that the tension is increasing every minute.

Previous events:

In the State of Oaxaca people live in a context of generalized violence in which repression and criminalization of the social movement and particularly against the teachers who belong to the Sección 22 aggravated in a particularly severe way linked to their fight against the implementation of the educational reform. By today, organizations from civil society and Human Rights organizations reported at least 75 Human Rights defenders imprisoned as political prisoners.

Within the events of criminalization of the Oaxacan teacher´s union stand out the following:

  • May 2013, detention of five teachers in Oaxaca: Damián Gallardo Martínez, Lauro Atilano Grijalva Villalobos, Mario Olivera Osorio, Sara Altamirano Ramos and Leonel Manzano Sosa.
  • In 2015, media campaigns of defamation and criminalization against the teachers increased permanently side by side with the process of dismantling of the IEEPO (State Institute of Public Education in Oaxaca) which took place in July leaving therefore thousands of teachers in a particular vulnerability due to not receiving payment for their work.
  • October 2015: Detention of Juan Carlos Orozco Matus, Othón Nazariega Segura, Efraín Picazo Pérez and Roberto Abel Jiménez García and emisión of dozens of arrest warrants against members of the Sección 22.
  • In April 2016, Aciel Sibaja Mendoza, financial secretary of the Sección 22 was arrested.
  • In May 2016 Heriberto Magariño López, another leader of the Sección 22 was arrested.
  • At last, June 11th Francisco Villalobos Ricardéz, leader of the Sección 22 was arrested and only hours afterwards June 12th Rubén Núñez Ginez, general secretary of the Sección 22 was arrested as well.

It is important to mention that arrest warrants are issued against teachers of intermediate authority, that means against teachers who coordinate and drive the teacher´s movement. This strategy is meant to disassemble the movement.

The same way diverse relators of the United Nations made urgent calls to the Mexican authorities expressing their concerns about the violations of Human Rights reported in some cases, in particular detentions without arrest warrant and without investigation, the use of torture during the posterior period of the arbitrary detention and other violations of the guarantees of the arrested persons[1].

The use of detentions, campaigns of defamation and repression against the Sección 22 have the clear aim to lessen the teacher´s movement which plays historically an important role in the social movement of Oaxaca. Dissembling the teacher´s movement impacts directly the work which all the persons and organizations of Human Rights are realizing in the State of Oaxaca and in Mexico.

We, the signing organizations, request that organisms, which are represented by you, are on the alert regarding this particularly violent situation which exists right now and that you join us in the following demands towards the federal government as well as the government of Oaxaca:

  • Cease of the wrongful and disproportionate use of force and repression against the teachers and the civil society who make use of their legitimate right of expression and free protest.
  • Immediate establishing of a round table for dialogue with the teachers of Oaxaca.
  • Immediate medical attention for all injured persons result of the violent acts of the State.
  • Cease of the criminalization of the teachers, cancelation of arrest warrants against members of the teacher´s union of Oaxaca and immediate liberation of all teachers which have been arrested in an arbitrary and illegal way.
  • Punishment of all persons responsible for arbitrary detentions, torture and other violations of Human Rights against members of the teacher´s union of Oaxaca.
