Students at Mexico’s largest university went on strike Wednesday to protest a campus attack against protesters in which two students were seriously injured.
Students at Mexico’s National Autonomous University announced a march at the main campus in Mexico City to demand an end to violence by groups of thugs who are often registered but don’t attend classes.
Some of those thugs beat up protesters from a university-affiliated high school who were demonstrating Monday against fees and for free speech. The attack included the use of gasoline bombs, rocks, sticks and knives.
