The Deputy to the National Assembly (AN), Bolivia Suárez, said that the regime violates the human rights of educators, who are being subjected to persecution, suspension of their salary and replacement from their posts by members of the Hugo Battle Units Chavez (UBCH). “People who are not prepared, who do not meet the minimum pedagogical requirements to teach and prepare the youth of the future of the country”, said Suarez.
The president of the Sub Commission of Education of the Permanent Commission of Integral Social Development, described the situation as very serious and said that the intention of the regime is to prevent the educators union from exercising its right to protest.
“Today, the president in charge of the Republic and president of the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, received the representatives of the magisterium union coalition of the Yaracuy State, whose human rights have been violated, including the right to protest. After a 48-hour strike, teachers and professors have been subjected to persecution, intimidation and replacement in their positions in the different educational institutions where they work, a situation that has worsened in Yaracuy, Lara and Zulia states”, added Suarez.
Suarez said that members of the regime’s UBCHs have pushed teachers out of classrooms, at the orders of the Governor of Yaracuy, Julio Cesar León Heredia with the support of mayors and councilors of the Maduro usurper regime.
“From the National Assembly we offer our support and solidarity with the educators of Yaracuy and of the whole country, because this situation is happening in all the states, including the capital city. We will take these complaints to international organizations. The only objective that the regime has is to intimidate the teachers union so that they don’t come out to protest”, he said.
For his part, Nayrobi Ávila, a member of the Yaracuy State union coalition, accused Yaracuy Governor Julio César León and the head of the Yaracuy educational zone Ana Rodríguez of orchestrating these maneuvers in schools to replace teachers with members of the UBCH and suspend their salaries.
“We have more than 600 cases of salary suspensions, which are called preventive suspensions, against teachers who dare to protest. The UBCH have entered the educational institutions of the 12 municipalities of Yaracuy State accompanied by mayors and councilors to take out the teachers. This is a violation of labor, human and social rights”, he concluded.
