An estimated four thousand people took to the streets of Mexico City, Monday, to protest against the government's 2013 education reforms on Teacher's Day.

The protesters, organized by the country's largest teacher's union, the National Coordination of Education Workers (CNTE), marched from the official residence of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto to the interior ministry, holding banners and chanting against the reforms.

The demonstrators demand the renewal of negotiations with Pena Nieto's government regarding the reforms passed in 2013. The protest was the third strike organized by the union so far this month.
