We have been informed, through the Net, that the government of Israel reward the teachers who encourage their students to join the army.
For three years of obligatory service. The teachers are rewarded depending on the success of the program. In the program, there are army officers, who participate and visit schools, organizing speeches.
The Secretariat of FISE was informed about the decision of the government of Sri Lanka to use military officers as teachers in some schools of the country.
FISE defends the rights of teachers and students. FISE struggles so that free education will be provided to all the students worldwide, with teachers who have the necessary qualifications and certificates of pedagogical and scientific sufficiency.
Demonstrations against cuts in Education
Thousands of students and teachers demonstrated in Madrid, denounce the plans of the government about cuts in public Education. Students put an end in their three-day demonstrations with a massive protest, as an answer to the austerity policy, applied by Mariano Rahoi ’s government on the pretext of the aims of the EU about the country ’s economy and the transfer of the cost of the crisis of the capital to the people, which has a knock-on-effect to the sector of Education and goes with cuts of social-security benefits, of salaries, pensions, as well as with burgeoning unemployment, that goes up to 26%.
“European programs”, with the financing of the E.U. take place at schools. Among them, there are:
The European Program Jean Monnet, entitled “Learning about the European Union at school”. The main objective of this program seems to be, according to them, “the presentation of the events, relevant to the European Union to the students, as well as their familiarization to the its institutions and its function”.
The program “Let ’s become Euro deputies”. The aim of this program is that “the students get their awareness raised, think and work on projects important to the society as a whole, and to themselves as tomorrow’s European citizens, especially during a period that the E.U. is tested.”

Dear brothers and sisters,
On behalf of the WFTU and the World Federation of Teachers Unions (FISE) allow me to convey to you a fraternal militant greeting from the class-oriented trade union movement and wish to your Congress every success for the benefit of the teachers and the people of Palestine, the Arab world and internationally.
We meet today for the first time but our organizations have long common history with many powerful struggles. The WFTU and its sectoral teachers organization has always stood firmly on the side of the Palestinian people. It has never been neutral. It is always supporting the fair Palestinian struggle against the Zionist Israel and the imperialist USA.

FISE denounces the imperialist intervention of the French military forces in Mali. The Hollande’s “socialist” government, in collaboration with all the imperialist mechanism and governments, stain their hands once again with the blood of the peoples.
We call the teachers’ unions from all over the world to condemn the imperialist intervention and to express solidarity with the people of Mali.
To strengthen their struggle for world peace and the overthrow of the imperialists.
We call upon the teachers to teach the young generation that
THE IMPERIALISM IS NOT INVINCIBLE
The working class has got the power to overthrow it
