Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and several cabinet members have been sued by the Patronal Confederation of the Mexican Republic (Coparmex) for failing to fix blockades put up by the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE), which some say damaged Mexico‘s economic activity by up to half a point of gross domestic product (GDP).

Entrepreneurs complained about unpunished blocked highways and streets in eight states of the Mexican Republic, the most affected being Oaxaca, Michoacan, Guerrero and Mexico City.

“In this complaint for protection we have sued (by the violation of the rights of entrepreneurs and citizens) the President, the Secretary of Education, Secretary of the Interior, the Inspectors the governors of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Chiapas Michoacan” said Gustavo de Hoyos.

Eighty-two days have passed since members of the CNTE broke the law by demonstrating an inability to establish order and end the blockades, said Gustavo de Hoyos in a press conference regarding the complaint he brought to the Courts of the Judiciary of the Federation.
