Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Striking teachers in Oaxaca face neoliberal cuts and government bullets.


The government is purging the Education Worker's Union, by completely rehiring with these criteria that not only look for people who are not going to fight for labor rights, but change the mold of education from the revolutionary model that came out of Mexico's revolutionary period, to a model that creates workers for a neoliberal, globalized economy.

Live from Mexico City, Laura Carlsen reports on teachers' strike in Oaxaca - from the protest's struggle against neoliberal labor and education policy changes that strip worker rights and ignore surging economic inequality, to the state's deadly response to this and other challenges to their economic agenda - and updates us on the political aftermath of the government killing of Honduran activist Berta Cáceres.

Laura spoke to the Real News Network for their segment Nine Killed in Police Crackdown on Oaxaca Teacher's Strike.
