Teachers’ Solidarity is Vital

Teachers’ leaders in the NUT and NASUWT have released plans for rolling strike action to begin in June and continue in the autumn term, in support of the ongoing campaign to defend pay, pensions and working conditions. The stakes are high. Gove has declared war on teaching unions, reminiscent of Thatcher’s destruction of the NUM in the 80s. What is clear is that the government will stop at nothing to destroy teaching unions. The advent of Academies and Free Schools is the opening salvo in their strategy; enabling these schools to derecognise unions. This is a ‘fight to the death’. Either Gove and his coalition suffer a significant defeat or teachers’ power to organise will be emasculated and the unions will be smashed. At this crucial time teachers cannot afford disunity. The struggle will be long and hard. Teachers are not only defending themselves, they are defending the future of education from spivs and privateers who can only see the quickest way to profit.

Azov battalion surrender at the Azovstal steelworks; a symbolic defeat for Ukraine. US, UK & some EU governments still want to fight the war to the last Ukrainian; they continue warmongering and sending weaponry to Ukraine.

#Russia says it has no problem with #Sweden or #Finland, hence no problem with it joining #NATO. It will however monitor its deployment of troops and weaponry, and take action appropriate to the threats.
As in Britain it's up to the people to say #No2NATO.
