Normally here in Oaxaca the teachers are satisfied keeping their protests to blocking the roads. This year they went further by blocking traffic in and out of the Pemex distribution center by Tule. In a short time most stations in the valley ran out of gas. There was very little traffic on the highway. They also blocked a voting location in Tlacolula. The Feds finally showed up and ran the teachers off. A lot of folks were without work as they couldn't get their products. We have several friends that have children in school. Tomorrow will mark two weeks that the teachers have been away from the classroom. It's difficult to listen to parents that are distraught over their children's education and there is nothing they can do to better the situation.
