Mexico Under Growing Pressure to Stop CNTE Highway Blockades

MEXICO CITY — With a top Mexican business group calling for a tax protest, authorities are under growing pressure to stop blockades of streets and highways by demonstrating teachers.

The National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE) and other radical teachers’ unions have been blocking roads in southern Mexico for weeks, causing economic losses the business chamber estimates at almost $400 million. The Chambers of Commerce Confederation (Concanaco) chamber says members may file tax returns showing zero income if the situation continues.

On Wednesday, a federal court issued a rare injunction ordering Mexico City authorities to guarantee free movement on Bucareli Avenue, which runs in front of the federal Interior Secretariat. The street has been blocked for weeks at a time by protest encampments.

The tribunal says city authorities have not ensured the right to protest has been exercised with due respect for the right of movement.
