The teachers of PAME, participating in a really important initiative, are organizing a solidarity campaign for the children of Palestine, trying to gather money, notebooks and stationary. Using as a trademark a poster with the moving photos of a little girl searching under the ruins of her own house for books and notebooks, on the basis of a part of the famous Picasso painting “Guernica”, along with an announcement, PAME is spreading the content of this campaign to the schools of our country. It is addressing to teachers and students, with the announcement below:
Dear colleagues and students,
Do you remember the photo of a little girl, who was searching under the ruins of her own house to find her book, after the bombings. This image was released a few days ago and is worth a thousand words.
The inhumanity, the barbarity, the imperialistic atrocity do not stop. So far, 565 students have lost their lives, at least 3.000 of them were injured and 277 schools were completely destroyed. Israel, the EU and NATO bath the people of Palestine in blood. The greek government is on the side of the murderous government of Israel. It signs with Israel military cooperation agreements. It is an accomplice. Continue reading

The Secretary of FISE congratulate the initiative of PAME in Greece to compose a common announce with the trade unions of Europe to express the solidarity of the working class with the people of Palestine.
It condemns the Israeli attacks, as well as the trade unions that try to hide their implicit support to the imperial forces and to the Israeli government, with the policy of equal distances.
We cosign the document of PAME and we invite all the class-oriented teachers’ unions, all of our comrades who work in the sector of education globally to support this initiative and to multiply the forms of solidarity.
