Fundraiser for Oaxacan Comrades in Rebellion

June 27, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 2:00 am

The teachers Union (CNTE) in Oaxaca, Mexico, has been struggling against the Mexican government privatization of education & funding cuts for the poor, indigenous population.

Last weekend, government forces opened fire on a crowd of striking teachers and their supporters, killing 12 and injuring over 50 people. The incident has received widespread condemnation with people across the US and Mexico supporting CNTE & their allies.

CNTE teachers are asking for support in the form of funds for medical supplies. Here in Chicago, concerned Bridgeport residents are stepping up to support the teachers.

100% of the funds raised Monday 6/27 at Bernice’s will be sent to CNTE.
