In the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, a deadly police crackdown against teachers has left nine people dead and more than 100 wounded. On Sunday, police descended on teachers in the community of Nochixtlán, where they had set up blockades to protest against neoliberal education reform and the arrests of two teachers’ union leaders last week. In Part 2 of our conversation, Mexican scholar and activist Gustavo Esteva talks about the connections between the recent police killings in Oaxaca, the repression of the 2006 rebellion there, and the 2014 disappearance of 43 teachers from Ayotzinapa teachers’ college in Guerrero. "We are struggling for our lives," Esteva says. "This is not the end of something, but the beginning of something that is very dangerous for our lives, for all of us." ||| Visit democracynow.org to watch the full daily news program, read the transcript, or search our vast online archive.
