Issue No. 2371

Riot police attacked striking teachers in Zocalo, the central square of Mexico city, on Friday of last week.

They used tear gas and water cannon to clear a protest camp the strikers had been living in since August. 

Up to 10,000 teachers occupied the camp the previous week. They are protesting against the imposition of performance evaluations.
