Mexico: Fear of use of excessive force/ fear for safety

, Index number: AMR 41/065/2007

Teachers who have recently graduated from a teacher training college based in Ayotzinapa, municipality of Tuxtla, Guerrero state, and members of the Federation of Socialist Rural Students of Mexico (Federación de Estudiantes Campesinos Socialistas de México), are demonstrating about employment rights. They risk being violently dispersed and arrested by the Guerrero state police. Amnesty International is concerned that police may use excessive force in the operation.
