Mexican teachers continued their protests against the Education Reform Law as thousands from throughout the country marched on Feb. 5 to Los Pinos, the home of the president of Mexico. Spokespersons from the National Coordinating Committee (la CNTE), the dissident group in the Mexican Teachers Union (el SNTE), said that teachers from 22 states participated.
Adelfo Alejandro Gómez, general secretary of Local 7 of el SNTE and a leader of la CNTE said that while they are marching at the moment, the group has not ruled out strikes as a way to overturn the education reform.
