Eyewitness accounts and on the spot interviews,including testimony given to members of a human rights delegation of which theauthor was a member, dramatize a miniature war that rivaled events inAfghanistan and Iraq for brutality, bloodshed and mendacity. Both thegovernments of Mexico and the United States repressed news about killings,arrests and torture which not only left scars but erupted in a vicious aftermathin 2017.
Kill the Teachers takes readers through thisagonizing period of contemporary Mexican history, much of it told in the exactwords of the participants. Sparked by the violent repression of teachersdemonstrating for better and working conditions, thousands of women clangingspoons and pans and skillets invaded the state television station. Governmentdeath squads careened through the city of Oaxaca forcing residents to blockadestreets, schools and offices. 
Gunmen storming citizen barricades and shootingand killing an American photographer triggered more anger and greaterreprisals. Photos of the assassination flashing around the world provoked the Mexicangovernment to send over 4,000 heavily armed soldiers and federal police to teardown the barricades. A month later, backed by armored vehicles, they attacked afleeing crowd which included street vendors, workers, passers by, women andchildren. The police and paramilitaries arrested, tortured and sent over 140innocent civilians to maximum security prisons “to each the protesters alesson.”
         And to solidify their hold on one ofMexico’s most poverty wracked states.
