The World Federation of Teachers Union, FISE, member of WFTU expresses its condolences to the workers and the people of Italy, to the families of the victims of the devastating earthquake of 24th August.
Natural phenomena become causes of disaster, loss of lives with main victim the workers and the people. This is because the bourgeois governments do not have as their priority the protection of the lives, the earthquake protection measures and the civil protection of the people and the workers.
The Italian teachers will have to be at the forefront to address the problems not only of survival but also of the continuation of the students and pupils’ studies.
FISE and teacher unions that are its members are on the side of the workers and the people of Italy during these difficult times.
