November 19, 2013

The Mexican National Coordinating Office of Education Workers announced a new program of activities to oppose education reform, beginning with a march to the Interior Ministry.

Yesterday, the teachers departed from their camp at the Monument to the Revolution to the government office and the Televisa television network, together with members of the Mexico City People's Education Coordinating Committee, also associated with the union.

Francisco Bravo, leader of the Section Nine of the national coordinating office, said that 5,000 teachers from his group would join the protest against the initiative of President Enrique Peña Nieto.

The goal of the march is to demand national negotiations, as well as the end of administrative, legal and labor repression against teachers from different states who have participated in the struggle against education reform, the union said.

The CNTE agreed to block roads and hold rallies and meetings at the headquarters of the country's three top political parties: the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), the National Action Party (PAN)and the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD).

Also on Tuesday at 1 p.m local time, union leaders will hold a press conference about education reform at the Lenin auditorium of the National Polytechnic Institute's School of Economics.

However, the largest number of activities has been scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 20, the date of the anniversary of the Mexican Revolution, when protesters will march from the Benito Juarez Monument to the Angel of Independence Monument.

That day at 5 p.m. local time, they will hold a cultural ceremony as part of the sit-in they have been holding since Sept.13, while the CNTE National Political Directorate will hold a meeting at the Section Nine building.
