Mexico: Buses Burn in Oaxaca

Mark in Mexico says that striking teachers commandeered three city buses in front of Benito Juárez University on Sunday, slashed their tires, and shattered their windows. In an update post, he says one of the buses was burned and that “the respected newpaper Reforma from Mexico City seems to be aware that the teachers’ union is not wholly responsible for some of the violence now occurring in the city. Reforma names “student groups, APPO, human rights groups and revolutionaries” as the proponents of and major actors in the violence taking place all over the city. That would be my take on it, also. The teachers’ union started something that it no longer can control.” Also, an error in a recent Associated Press story.
