On behalf of the World Federation of Teachers Unions, FISE, member of WFTU, we express our condolences for the victims of the criminal assault on the Istanbul airport.
The more competitions and contradictions of imperialists are accentuated the more hard measures will be taken by the governments, as Turkey and criminal attacks will increase. The measures against terrorism are always accompanied by measures that remove democratic, trade union rights, and such measures are utilized to remove wages, pensions and to adapt education more and more to the needs and profits of the multinationals and monopolies.
FISE, the class trade unions around the world, the unions of teachers in Turkey and the Middle East need to strengthen the anti-imperialist struggle. To strengthen the struggle for peace, security, life with rights.
We express our condolences to the victims’ families and the solidarity of FISE to the teachers, the working class and the people of Turkey. ”
