The people living in the neighborhoods close to our school today held a strike, or huelga. A huelga here means tires are burned in the streets to shut things down in the affected areas and keep cars from passing through. The group of protesters gathered discourages people from trying to cross through on foot, too. This morning it began just after some of the staff had arrived but before the morning rush of students. We waited around for a while to tell students that classes were cancelled, and then we had a free day. Feliz Dia de Huelga, everyone!
