Four students from the Escuela Normal Vasco de Quiroga de Tiripetío in the Mexican state of Michoacán were injured by deliberately ramming a police vehicle against the demonstrators. Eight police officers were injured in the riots that followed.
Around 300 students stopped buses in the street to negotiate the release of 23 classmates who were arrested Thursday while attending another roadblock.
When the police arrived, about 200 officers, there were beating, beating and cracking. “The staff of the Department for the Restoration of Public Order (UROP) maintains an operational action in Tiripetío to find those responsible for the aggression recorded in fireworks against 8 police elements already medically treated and to maintain order”, the police of Michoacán said reported on Twitter.
Gamaliel Guzmán, head of state of the National Coordinator for Education Workers, said that tempers heated after a police car ran over dozens of normalists.
