Protests continue in Oaxaca of southern Mexico
font size    

Some 5,000 protestors marched Sunday through the streets of Oaxaca, a city in southern Mexico, to demand a proper investigation into the killing of protestor Jose Jimenez, local media reported.

Jose Jimenez, 50, was shot dead Thursday when assailants fired on a demonstration of about 8,000 people demanding the resignation of Oaxaca governor Ulises Ruiz.

Sunday's protestors carried placards saying, "We demand a clarification of Jose Jimenez's death" and "End repression."

The protestors marched in silence to mourn Jimenez's death, and later gathered in the main square of Oaxaca city, capital of the Oaxaca state.

Teachers in Oaxaca city have frequently launched strikes since May 22, calling for better pay and working conditions. Sustained protests ascended on Oaxaca to demand the resignation of Ruiz after police attacked a demonstration of striking teachers in June.

Members of the Oaxaca People's Popular Assembly have joined the demonstrators and they also demanded the release of imprisoned activists.
