Mexican teachers in the strike

Mexico Police Clash With Striking Teachers in Mexico City

Riot police swept thousands of striking teachers out of the heart of Mexico City on Friday ending their weeks-long occupation of the Zocalo plaza over education reforms.

Protesting teachers armed themselves with metal pipes and wooden clubs and blocked off the Zocalo with steel grates and plastic traffic dividers.

Police drove protesters through the streets using tear gas. Protesters threw rocks and other objects at police.
