MEXICO CITY - The National Coordinating Committee of Education Workers (CNTE) announced a new organizational phase with protests around the country: at the borders, Pemex [state oil company] facilities, toll booths and shopping centers. Along with the State Coordinating Committee of Education Workers of Guerrero (Ceteg), it announced that the restructuring of the movement has very concrete goals.

Although classes start today in Oaxaca, members of Section 22 and contingents from other sections will reinforce the encampment set up at the Monument to the Revolution, said Juan Jose Ortega, Secretary General of Section 18 in Michoacan. He did not specify how many more supporters will join them, but did say there will be more than 7 thousand coming from the states of Oaxaca, Veracruz, Chiapas, Guerrero, DF and Michoacan.

The teachers also appealed to other states, unions, and social and student organizations to join the labor strike.

"We call all other sections in the country or related unions to join the labor strike as soon as possible so we can strengthen the resistance," said Ortega.
