130 years have passed since the uprising of the workers in Chicago in 1886 who were struggling for work for everyone with full rights.
On the occasion of Labour Day, the ultimate day of class struggle and internationalist solidarity of the working class, the World Federation of Teachers Unions, member of the WFTU, addresses a militant class greeting to all workers in the field of public and private education.
Our struggle for the rights of teachers is tightly tied to workers’ struggles for a better life, education and dignity.
Education for us is a weapon and a tool for the improvement of society, whereas the capital, its governments and the European Union, the economic mechanisms see it as a merchandise and a field to ensure to the capitalists more profits.
On the occasion of the International Workers’ Day, FISE invites teachers unions, teachers, to strengthen the struggle against the causes that generate wars, refugees, poverty, exploitation, illiteracy, blockades.
To build fronts of struggle in every university, every school, in every neighbourhood. Teachers, students and workers must join forces to empower our voices, with tenacity and determination to walk the road paved by the workers in Chicago in 1886
LONG LIVE THE 1st MAY, DAY OF STRUGGLE AND SOLIDARITY OF WORLD WORKING CLASS
