Protesting teachers in Mexico rebuild camps after police eviction
font size    

Protesting school teachers in the southern Mexican city of Oaxaca put up their camps again on Thursday at the city's central square one day after police expelled them, Mexican news agency Notimex said.

Before rebuilding their improvised settlement, teachers marched through the main streets of the city, capital of the Oaxaca state, led by Enrique Rueda Pacheco, head of section 22 of the National Education Workers Union, the report said.

The march was also attended by parents, civil groups, students and parishioners from two of Oaxaca's five most important churches.

On Wednesday, some 2,000 police tried to evict the teachers from the city center, where they have been camping for 24 days demanding higher salaries and better working conditions.

During the eviction, at least 30 people were injured and one student was beaten to death by police. The union leader, however, claimed that at least three people died during the police operation.

Oxaca governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz has begun negotiating with the union, but no agreement has yet been reached, the report said.
