Mexican Teachers On Strike

Print page

Mexican teachers protest against new educational reform. This new reform threatens teachers, because if they fail an evaluation they are able to get fired from their job. Protest began with an outbreak of violence.

Police had to fight against the protesters and try to end the protest by using force. Teachers tell others that they were not the ones using violence, but the extreme supporters often were the cause. They joined the demonstration before the police came arrived and due to their violent outburst the police had to step in.

Teachers have the ability to protest against the reform. The government steps into place by bringing in the police to calm down the situation. This event does have importance, because it shows when people get out of control the government will do anything in their power to calm down the situation at hand. Us as human beings have the ability to speak our minds and try to change things that we do not believe are fair.
