Public Sector Workers demonstrating Yesterday Teachers in Cyprus were on strike yesterday against cuts in public spending The teachers struck yesterday together with most other public service workersexcept those in the emergency services. Cyprus is one of the countries which has been most affected by the crisis in the EU, and its government - like governments all over the world - is attempting to make the public sector and the poor fill the gap through wage cuts, attcking pensions and other cuts in services. This is the second teachers' strike in the last few weeks against these cuts (see previous post)
