FISE, the World Federation of Teachers Union, member of WFTU, is strongly protesting against the situation experienced by the unpaid teachers and other workers in Zimbabwe, who have been on strike for several days claiming back what they have earned.
It invites the government to satisfy the demands of the teachers and pay the wages immediately to all workers. It demands that the terrorism and the violence against the strikers, unleashed by the police, stop. All workers around the world have the right to meet their needs and to be paid promptly and satisfactorily. No government, no employer is justified to deprive money and rights from the workers. We send a solidarity message to the teachers, the doctors and all workers who are demonstrating.
