I had hoped to have a report on events in Oaxaca, Mexico but am delayed. There are solidarity rallies with the teachers around the US and will be one today in my town on the US-Mexico border.

Teachers & students are playing such an important & central role in the struggle against neoliberal attacks on education & social services all over Latin America & elsewhere. But teachers & students in Mexico have long been the vanguard & paid the price. Many were forced to flee for their lives to the US as undocumented immigrants. The Ayotzinapa 43 disappeared in September 2014 were students at a teacher college.

Our fullest solidarity with the teachers & students of Mexico for their intransigent courage against unspeakable violence & repression.
