Escuche/Vea/Lea (en inglés)

Los docentes de las escuelas públicas de Chicago llevan adelante por segundo día consecutivo la primera huelga en veinticinco años. Casi treinta mil docentes y no docentes salieron a la calle contra las reformas en el área de educación que trata de implementar Rahm Emanuel, el poderoso alcalde de la ciudad y ex jefe de gabinete del presidente Obama. El lunes, decenas de miles de docentes, estudiantes y padres marcharon por las calles de la ciudad adoptiva del presidente Obama. Desde Chicago se comunica con nosotros la corresponsal de Democracy Now! Jaisal Noor.
