The new leadership of FISE, the international organization of teachers, stands by the side of the trade unions and of people with disabilities.
In November 29th, the Coordination Committee of the Disabled People in Greece organised a demonstration in front of the Finance Ministry. The demonstration was supported by delegates of FISE and WFTU, who declared that the struggle of the class unions for free education, free medicine, doctors, free care for the disabled people is an everyday struggle. It is not a one day struggle.
It is a struggle for the rights of each and every one of us, a struggle for the abolition of the exploitation of man by man, a struggle for the reinforcement of the solidarity. It is a struggle for the conviction of the governments and the strategies that oblige the disabled to survive thanks to charity and begging.
A new demonstration has been programmed on Monday 3.12.2012, the International Day of Persons with disabilities, at the central square of Athens.
The main demands are the functioning of the closed schools and the free of charge cover of medical needs of people with disabilities.
On the banner:
They donated 200 billions to the bankers and they cut the budget for medicine, treatment and allowances for the disabled
