Wednesday was a national day of action in Honduras as teachers, students, and members of the National People's Resistance Front took part in a third week of actions against the privatization of education. Students of the National Autonomous University in the capital of Tegucigalpa occupied the campus and the surrounding streets. They were then attacked by riot squads launching tear gas and rocks, and by two tanks that fire water mixed with pepper spray. The police entered the campus grounds from a back entrance before being repelled by hundreds students throwing rocks. It marked the second time in one week that the police entered the university, breaking a Honduran law that prohibits the presence of police or military on Honduran university campuses.
