The World Federation of Teachers Unions, FISE, member of the World Federation of Trade Unions, WFTU, denounces the assassination of Lazarinos dos Santos, National Secretary of the Teachers and Teaching Workers Union (SINPTENU) and a neighbor of his, who were killed by police bullets in Luanda, on Monday, May 25.
Targeting the trade unionist, two policemen on a motorbike, without any excuse, shot and executed in cold blood the trade unionist and caused the fatal wound of his neighbor with whom he was simply talking at the time.
We know very well that the assassinations of trade unionists serve governments and mechanisms that promote actions against people and protect hostile interests to workers, education and teachers.
We send our condolences and solidarity to the family of Lazarinos dos Santos and SINPTENU union.
The World Federation of Teachers Unions, FISE, stands by your side..
