Mexico City protests force change in speech date
FILE - In this May 2, 2013 file photo, Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto speaks during a news conference in Mexico City, Mexico. Teachers' protests that have snarled traffic, blocked government buildings and prompted the cancellation of sports events in Mexico City have prompted Pena Nieto to change the date of his state-of-the-union address that was scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013. That's the same day a dissident teachers' union plans the latest in a series of protests against the president's proposed education reform. (AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills, File)
