Help Oaxaca!!! HUMAN RIGHTS #SOCIALJUSTICE



There are horrible injustices happening in Oaxaca right now. Originally I saw lots of images of Chiapas but now it's happening in Oaxaca.
This is similar to what happened 10 years ago, when 17 people died and there were many blockades. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006_Oaxaca_protests

The people of Oaxaca are beautiful sweet kind people and it hurts me so to hear and see what is happening there. Please share this, spread the news, don't let this go. These people need justice. #SocialJustice #HumanRights #Oaxaca #Mexico 



First I heard there was no internet for 3 days, then photos of marches in the streets and people trying so hard to be peaceful but now all HELL has broken loose.

 This was in Chiapas
"Gracias a que hay medios de comunicacion como Portal R-evolución Chiapas, que decimos las cosas como son, sin ataduras de ninguna índole, los medios internacionales estan volteando a ver para Chiapas.

Observadores internacionales presentes en el movimiento magisterial y popular en Chiapas."

La Federación de Maestros de Columbia Británica, Canadá, envían carta de apoyo a la CNTE y se solidarizan con la lucha magisterial mexicana.

Traducción:

Queridos colegas mexicanos:

Escribo a nombre de los 41,000 miembros de la Federación de Maestros de Columbia Británica, Canadá, para expresar nuestra solidaridad y apoyo.

Hemos visto los informes de la campaña de los maestros mexicanos que se oponen a las acciones del Gobierno de México para quitar los derechos laborales a los maestros e imponer sistemas de evaluación docente. Todos estamos siendo sometidos a nuevas presiones con enfoques neoliberales de este tipo, que son importados de organizaciones internacionales como lo es la OCDE e implementado como políticas de gobierno.

Estamos impresionados con las manifestaciones y protestas que han puesto presión sobre su gobierno para evitar estos proyectos neoliberales. Los apoyamos y estamos en solidaridad con los maestros y maestras de la CNTE para mantener la educación como un derecho social y como base de una cultura nacional y prioridad social.

En solidaridad

Jim Iker

OAXACA, Mexico (AP) — Violent clashes between police and members of a radical teachers' union who had blockaded roads in southern Mexico on Sunday left six people dead and more than 100 injured, officials said.
The teachers from the National Coordinator of Education Workers, or CNTE, are opposed to the mandatory testing of teachers as part of Mexico's sweeping education reform and are also protesting the arrest of union leaders on money laundering and other charges.
In Sunday's clashes in the southern state of Oaxaca, protesters threw stones and Molotov cocktails, and burned vehicles, while Associated Press journalists saw riot police firing on protesters. Clashes took place in several municipalities in Oaxaca, but the most violent were in Nochixtlan, north of the state capital also called Oaxaca.
