FISE the World Federation of Teachers’ Unions affiliated to WFTU welcomes the struggle of PAME against the new anti-people anti-labor agreement for the third memorandum was decided at the Euro Summit, proving once again that the European Union is an alliance of caring for the salvation of the capitalists taking tough measures for the people of Greece and having an impact on the working class throughout the world.

The European Union and the political parties that support it are detrimental to the interests of all peoples.

We invite teachers of Greece to participate in fighting demonstrations of PAME.

The working class of Greece not to approve the new agreement. With its struggle to say

No to the new barbaric third Memorandum. No to the new brutal measures. 

Accept our militant greetings

Continue the struggle of all of us

d) At least 58 million children in the world remain illiterate, since they do not go to school due to poverty.

76017More acute are the problems that millions of children face especially in India, where capitalist development over the past 15 years has brought the 60% of the population living in extreme poverty and struggling to survive through the limited amount of less than two US dollars a day that have at their disposal. This explains the dramatic images of millions of children who live completely abandoned in the biggest cities of India, of whom (according to experts) around 68 million are at risk of dying before they reach the age of five. Another 119 million children in India suffer from chronic malnutrition, while 700 000 children die of curable diseases every year due to poverty. Continue reading
