15/01/2016 – We condemn the Israeli attack on the Birzeit University
The World Federation of Teachers Unions, FISE, member of the WFTU condemns the new provocative attack of the Israeli army, at the offices of Birzeit University
The attack took place at dawn on Monday, January 11, when forces of the Israeli occupation army with about 15 vehicles stormed into the office of the Students Council, after having demolished the western gate of the university, turning it into a military outpost. They confiscated flags, banners, loudspeakers, audio equipment and computers belonging to students.
The everyday violations and attacks against Palestine and the Palestinian students aim to deprive even the right to education. To turn the Palestinian people who struggle for a free homeland into a people illiterate, half-educated and weak-willed.
FISE supports the Palestinian people, supports their request to free homeland, supports the struggle for free access to education. The solidarity of teachers and all workers throughout the world can be the shield of the Palestinian people.
