Indigenous Mexican Migrants Reject Education Privatization Efforts Back Home

from IQ Multimedia:

by Bertha Rodríguez Santos

   A group of members of the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations (FIOB) of California made a stand in Los Angeles on Saturday, in solidarity with a movement of teachers throughout Mexico. The FIOB, many of them Mexican educators, are mobilizing in opposition to so-called education reform in Mexico, which is perceived by FIOB as a measure imposed to privatize education. This could, the group fears, bring an end to independent thinking and the educational unions which are essential to anti-privatization efforts in Mexico and abroad. The lack of these groups would, according to FIOB, result in an end benefit for the proponents of privatization.

Large Collision at York and Figueroa Injures Six

by LA1 News

   Memorial Day Weekend began with a huge crash at the main corner in Highland Park Friday night. Two vehicles were involved at just after 9:00 p.m. It was described by a cashier at Penny's Restaurant across the street as a classic "t-bone" incident. One vehicle was attempting to make a left turn and the other was trying to enter the intersection just as the light changed. There was no immediate sign that alcohol or drugs played a role.

   Firefighters from LAFD fire stations, including 12 and 55 in Highland Park, responded with heavy equipment and the 'Jaws of Life' used to extract a male occupant from one vehicle, a light gray late-1990s model Lincoln Town Car with Dayton spoke rims. The other car involved was a dark gray early 2000s Nissan Altima. It had at least one female inside. There were numerous occupants in each vehicle. Six persons in total were transported to hospitals.
