Some of the teachers destroyed the Ethnobotanical Garden while shouting at the former leader “Assassin”.

The teaching movement considers it “an offense to the struggle for public education” that the former leader has precisely chosen Oaxaca to hold her civil and religious wedding, in one of the main bastions of the teachers’ movement.

The CNTE stated that the rejection of the teacher Elba Esther Gordillo is because she was an “accomplice” of the neoliberal governments that Section 22 is fighting against, for which the former leader was named a persona “non grata” by the teachers.

Before the destruction of the CNTE in the cultural center neither the municipal nor state police have been present in the place.

This Friday it was announced that the religious wedding of Elba Esther Gordillo, 77 years old, and her boyfriend Luis Antonio Lagunas, 36, would have strict security measures to avoid covid-19 infections among the guests.

According to the journalist Salvador García Soto, the marriage link in which the former official will change the “yes I protest” for the “yes I accept”, will be held in the historic center of Oaxaca and to access the property they will request a diagnostic test by PCR or antigens no more than 24 hours to rule out patients with Covid-19.

In addition, the 150 guests who will attend the ceremony will have their cell phones protected, to avoid leaks of the celebration.
