Teachers in Oaxaca will not be cowed

not fucking around

ZNet article
counterpunch essay
BBC coverage

Teachers in Oaxaca continue to lead the revolt against corrupt governor Ulises Ruiz.

Meanwhile, teachers in Korea upload posters to internet sites (Seoul) and make videos critical of free trade agreements (Busan).

I understand that folks are proud of what was accomplished in 1987, and they should be. But there is a great deal of work yet to be done.

Oaxacan teachers are an inspiration to all.

Very good blog.

There is an article in Korean at the Counterfire [맞불] website about the Mexican teachers' struggle. It's actually a translation of an article in this week's Socialist Worker.

Thanks Renegade, though it's looks pretty damn feeble when compared to yours!

And thanks for the links kotaji, it's heartening to see Oaxaca get some attention ...
