This is a text from the Mexican teachers of the CNTE, that were on the zocalo of Mexico City in a base camp for four weeks and last september 13th were brutally attacked by thousands of mexican riot police.

"We are called lazy!"

We are called "Lazy" for have stopped the school, the city, the country. Lazy eyes that do not watch the despair of the people, Lazy ears that do not hear the cries of hunger of the poor children Lazy feet that do not walk against the rules of an illegitimate government, Lazy heart that do not moved for the pain of the others, Lazy brain that repeat the lies that spreads the Television and do not seek the truth, among of lies, Lazy hands that do not dare to write their own history.

The teacher that read this text is the Professor Federico López from Oaxaca México Mexico city, Zócalo September 13th.
