Mexico: thousands of teachers and students march again

The protests against the Education Law, which implies almost totalitarian cuts in worker rights, continued on Thursday in Mexico. Thousands marched through Distrito Federal and in many other cities through the North American country, along with other measures like blockade of roads, suspension of classes, etc. 

The government responded with massive police deployment, which is feared will be the main means that the contested President Peña Nieto will use to enforce his power, also as he attempts to privatize the oil company PEMEX, the backbone of the country's limited prosperity.
