I kept seeing the word ¨paro¨ around campus in relation to the faculty´s huelga legal (legal strike).
I´ve subsequently learned its the term being used to describe some students who have taken a role in support of the huelga legal. It means: strike; unemployment; unemployment insurance. I will need to talk more with some students to get a sense of their objectives in relations to the strike. Today the sindicato (union) voted to extend their strike to its 14th Day of activities today. I also saw a group of young students with signs relative to the strike who appeared headed for the protest site on San Miguel avenue.
The above mural and message reads:
Thank you because they teach us the value of winning and losing (with the word losing replaced by the black spray painted word fighting= luchando).
