Yesterday, school students from many schools in Athens and Piraeus demonstrated “for the school that we and the children of the world deserve”
With slogans such as “the education is not a product to be sold, but a right conquered through struggle” and also “the new generation has ideals and cannot be sold out or grovel”, the school students marched with banners showing their demands.
A student-representative from the Coordinating Committee of School Students in Athens greeted the school students and student councils that took the decision to participate in the mobilization. “We unite our voices with the parents and the workers that are under a frontal attack by the government of SYRIZA-ANEL which reduces salaries and pensions by imposing brutal taxes and also placing the Education in the same memorandum context. We cannot tolerate anymore to be freezing cold in the classrooms, to pay a bunch of money and to have a limited leisure time”, he noted, concluding with the Coordinating Committee’s message that “today it’s not the end, it’s the beginning. Today’s rally gives us the opportunity to strengthen our discussion, our reflection and to give solutions to our actual needs, for the school and life that we deserve”.
Representatives from the Vocational High Schools mentioned the particular problems that they are facing, namely the deficiencies and the mergers of specialties, while student’s councils from other schools presented their initiatives to claim their demands and to show their solidarity with the children of the refugees by saying that “It’s wrong for these children who are facing daily the dark side of life to be deprived from their right to education”.
