Since you read this blog you know about the assault on Mexican teachers and their union by the corrupt narco-connected government of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
Last week government bullets left as many as nine dead in the state of Oaxaca.
Aside from Facebook and Twitter there has been little reporting of the events in Mexico.
Until massive protests yesterday in Mexico City the American media has been silent. That made the NY Times.
I couldn’t help but wonder how the media would react if it were nine dead teachers in Paris, Brussels or Chicago.
The issue is familiar. Mexican teachers oppose the government’s reforms that aim at privatization of the Mexican education system.
The reason it sounds familiar is because it is. We see it here.
Maybe that is why the American media doesn’t want to talk about protesting teachers killed by the government for resisting the reforms.
Oh. And it wasn’t Muslims.
