Mexico City, Oct 15, (RHC), Ivan Urban Ascencio. the spokesman of the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE) said Monday in Michoacan (western Mexico), that members of the national guild will continue countrywide demonstrations against the government's proposed reform of the educational system.

Ascencio pointed out that 10 thousand educators from several states are currently camped out near the Monument of the Revolution in Mexico City, in protest against the educational and structural reform proposed by the current president of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto. He added that in the coming days more protesters will take to the streets, plazas, and shopping centres across the country to voice their disapproval.

Educators say the proposed reforms, approved in September, limits the rights of workers without considering economic and cultural differences.

The education reform has been heavily promoted by the president of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, and is the first major legislative change approved as part of what is known as the Mexico Pact, signed between the three main political parties in the country. (TeleSur)
