In Michoacán, Section 18 declared indefinite strikes beginning Wednesday, so that as many as 80% of the 11,000 school buildings in the state will close their doors. (Cuartoscuro)

Teachers from the National Coordinating Committee of Education Workers (CNTE) increased their demonstrations yesterday in the states of Michoacán, Quintana Roo, Veracruz, Chiapas, Tabasco and Zacatecas, occupying municipal government headquarters and highways, as well as facilities of these states.

Members of CNTE, SNTE (Mexican National Educational Workers Union), and other independent trade and labor unions ignored the calls of the local authorities to negotiate an end to the conflict caused by the education reform, the newspaper 24 Horas reported.

Daniel López, spokesperson for Section 7 of Chiapas, said the blockades, marches and other actions the teachers engaged in at various states in the country are pressure tactics in order to bring the Secretariat of Government Relations (Segob) back to the negotiating table.

“No section of the Committee has sat down to talk with any representative from the government of their states, since a mandate exists to conduct negotiations with the federal government, because this is national issue”, emphasized the teacher.
