, June 14:
The expected but unwanted eviction of the members and supporters of the Oaxaca Democratic Teachers’ Union, Section 22 of the National Union of Education Workers (SNTE in its Spanish initials) occupying the Oaxaca City central square occurred on Wednesday, June 14. The operation began at 4:00 in the morning, with approximately 2500 state judicial police entering the teachers’ camp, using violence and teargas, among other weapons, to attack the protesters. This operation, according to Oaxaca Attorney General Lizbeth Caña, was carried out with warrants to raid the union hall and the Teachers’ Hotel, and with arrest warrants against leaders of the SNTE section 22, including Secretary General Enrique Rueda Pacheco, who appears to remain free at the moment. In order to execute the raid, they ejected not only the teachers and the organizations supporting them, but also children and elderly people. In their wake, the police left a path of destruction resembling a war zone. Read the rest of the article here.
