Responding to the call for sustained protest called by the president (E) of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, workers in the education sector at all levels have taken to the streets on Wednesday to demand from Maduro’s dictatorship better wages and working conditions.
The president of the Federation of Associations of University Professors of Venezuela (FAPUV), Lourdes Ramírez de Viloria, said that the workers of the sector will remain in the streets indefinitely. “This is not only about the workers and educators, but also about defending quality education, decent work, health for a dignified life and the Venezuelan family,” she said.
“Every day we are going to carry out a protest until we can get a change in the political administration of the country, because as long as there isn’t, we won’t be able to recover any of our rights,” she added.
In this sense, Ramirez de Viloria said that “if there is not a political change in the country or a response from the regime, we can determine a general strike or a national civic strike.”
Similarly, a member of the education sector said that “for tomorrow we are calling the eight federations to make the call once and for all because teachers can’t stand it.”
