Six dead, more than 100 injured in Mexico protest
OAXACA, MEXICO—Unknown gunmen opened fire as police and teachers clashed in southern Mexico on Sunday during a protest that left six people dead and more than 100 injured, authorities said.
The violence erupted as police threw tear gas at the protesters to end a weeklong barricade that was blocking a road in Asuncion Nochixtlan, a town in Oaxaca state, where some vehicles were set on fire.
The National Education Workers Coordinator (CNTE) union has been leading protests in Oaxaca for days against an education reform and the arrest of two of leaders.
The National Security Commission initially denied that officers were armed, charging that news pictures showing them with guns were “false.” But federal police chief Enrique Galindo later said that an armed unit was deployed after unidentified people “fired weapons on police and the population.”

Many articles have been written by conscientious journalists condemning the war policies and the role of inhumane decision makers who are responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent civilians for selfish gains.
However, these outspoken and brave writers remain sidelined and many Western journalists continue to support the bigotry and injustices. The continued incitements by irresponsible people and the distorted information and biased coverage that are prevalent in mainstream Western media are the main factors that incite the enemies of humanity to commit mass murders and spread terror all over the world. The status quo of military confrontation, the trade in war machines and easy access to arms are the real reasons behind the spread of terror around the world.
Only when policy makers abandon war policies and Western media assumes an honest role to identify the real enemies of humanity can the world live in lasting peace and harmony. —Courtesy:AA
