Leaders of the union representing Mexico’s teachers will meet with the government following violent clashes that left eight dead and 100 injured amid international calls for an investigation.
Representatives with Mexico’s National Coordination of Education Workers (CNTE) will meet with government officials Wednesday after protesters clashed with police Sunday night in Oaxaca, Mexico. Francisco Bravo, one of the CNTE leaders, will meet with Interior Minister Miguel Angel Osorio Chong Wednesday to talk about “unavoidable education reform.”
Bravo told Mexican newspaper Milenio that there are many activists taking measures to push back against Pres. Enrique Peña Nieto’s education reforms, and recent teacher layoffs.
