The Word Federation of Teacher’s Union FISE, member of WFTU, sends its militant salute and support to the teachers’ strike on the 24th and 25th of September, which was announced by USB in Italy.
The Education and the teachers have been burdened by the pandemic and the protection measures, both in cases where they were taken as well as when they weren’t. Shortage in teaching personnel, overcrowding of pupils in the classrooms, deficiencies in the public healthcare sector, unsafe transportation are some of the issues, teachers are facing around the globe.
The militant unions do not suspend their operation. They react with militancy towards all these. The attempts of the governments to abolish the militant demonstrations, to muzzle the protesting voices, to abolish class struggle, have to be intercepted.
We cannot remain passive; only our struggle can change the situation. Best of luck for the preparation and the successful outcome of your demonstrations on the 24th and 25th of September 2020.
